Danielle “Topanga” Fishel Comments on Being a Huge Wrestling Fan, & More


During a recent interview with TVInsider.com, Danielle “Topanga” Fishel commented on being a huge wrestling fan, and more. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On when she became a fan of pro wrestling: “Having Vader and Mick Foley on our show opened my eyes to wrestling back in the ‘90s. Obviously, I was a huge Rock fan. Who wasn’t? As a matter of fact the only reason I know how to raise one eyebrow is because of The Rock. I didn’t know how to do it in his heyday. I remember asking someone if you can teach yourself how to raise an eyebrow. I think it may have been Marilu Henner. I was doing a TV movie (Rocket’s Red Glare) with her at the time. I think she said to me, “Yeah, you can teach a muscle how to do something. The only way to do it is stare at it in the mirror and tell it what to do what you want it to do. I had to be in hair and makeup for this movie for at least 30 days. So, every morning while I was getting my makeup done I would stare at my left eyebrow in the mirror going, “Raise!” Both would raise again and again until finally I could perfect raising one eyebrow. Wrestling and The Rock is the reason I know how to raise an eyebrow.”

On her fandom for the industry throughout the years: “I dated someone in the late ‘90s who was super into wrestling. He took me to WrestleMania and Raw and fell in love with it. Then over the years I was a casual watcher. My husband is also a big fan. He took me to some independent shows at a place called PWG out here in the San Fernando Valley. It was there I met Lio Rush. I saw a lot of the superstars that we see today. I’m into that scene.”

On who has the best hair in wrestling: “I mean Seth Rollins has some pretty great hair, but I think Jungle Boy has the best hair in wrestling.”
