NWA Women’s World Champion Kamille will be defending her title against Taya Valkyrie at NWA 74 this coming weekend. Recently, the champ sat down with Andrew Thompson of POST Wrestling to discuss her run on top of the NWA women’s division, her tryout with WWE, and more. You can read highlights of the interview below:

On her year-long title reign: “It’s meant a lot [one-year reign as NWA World Women’s Champion]. I feel like I’ve come into my own this past year, a little over a year, and really kind of shown everybody what I’m made of because when I first won the title, I had only had a few matches with the NWA at that point so, ever since then, I’ve really grown as a performer, as a wrestler, as a talker, just everything. So it’s been an incredible year.”

On EmPowerrr being an annual event: “So I do think that it would be something nice to do [as] a once a year type of thing, an EmPowerrr event, just because it was such a great turnout last year. I performed both nights and I actually enjoyed the crowd on the first night more. I thought they were even more into it. So, it is something I would like to see but, Mickie James, it was basically her event, she was a huge part of it and I know now that she’s back in kind of the swing of things and she has a lot going on so I mean, that plays a part in it not happening this year… because it was her baby, you know what I mean? So, it’s something I would definitely love to see in the future, for sure.”

On her tryout with WWE: “Luckily, I had no idea about wrestling etiquette, any of the unspoken rules because I don’t have anyone in my family who’s in this business. Like, it’s a completely new venture for me, so I knew nothing about it. So when I moved down to Florida to train at Team 3D, I didn’t realize that I wouldn’t have time to have a normal job because I had always had a very regular job up until that point. So, one day, when I first moved there, I got my resumes together and I was all dressed up, looking nice for interviews and stuff because I’m old school. I like to go in person and drop off my resume and meet whoever is most in charge and while I was doing that, I was like, you know what? I know the Performance Center is down here somewhere and at that point, you could not find the address to the Performance Center so, you know, I’m a female so I’m a super sleuth so I somehow figured it out and figured where it was and then I was like, I can just go there, drop off my resume and I thought that I would maybe be able to work in marketing there and then train as a wrestler at the same time, like I had no idea and so I just buzz on the buzzer and I was like, ‘Hi. I’m interested in working here and also becoming a wrestler’ and they were like, ‘Uh… one second’ and then they buzzed me in and I just talked to the manager of the building and then yeah, led to me getting a tryout but they did explain to me, they were like, ‘But you can’t work a regular job and be a wrestler.’ They were like, ‘That’s not how it works.’ I didn’t know any better.”

On working with NWA: “So, I love working for the NWA. I love my bosses, I love my co-workers. It’s just a really great atmosphere especially when it comes to professional wrestling. The reason I quit a long time ago, even on the indies, is because it can be a very toxic place and some pretty bad people [are] involved, and that’s something I just truly stand behind the NWA is that the locker room is great, the office is great, and at the end of the day, I hope to stay with the NWA and right now, it’s my career and I make a good career doing it and as long as I can stay happy, healthy, and make a living doing it, I’m in it for the long haul and when I’m done in-ring, I would still love to be involved in the company, helping the women’s division in any way I can. Something I take pride in is the way I put my matches together and I think that’s something that I can help a lot of girls with so that’s something I would definitely be interested in doing in the future as well.”

On NWA’s new Women’s TV Title: “So I think it’s great that more women will get even more opportunities through that [NWA Women’s TV Title] and a little more eyes on them is something that they can hold that feels important to them, and we also have NWA USA and I think that’s a great title for that show, so I think it works out really well. You mentioned the NWA Women’s Tag Team Titles, I do wish that we could grow that division a little bit more because to me, if you’re gonna have the titles, you need to kind of have people in that division if you will. So that’s something within the next year I would like to see grow a little bit more.”

On Alundra Blayze helping to agent men’s matches in NWA: “She [Alundra Blayze] works a lot with the guys, the guys’ matches so she hasn’t been my agent or anything but just as a person, obviously everyone knows she’s just super cool and down to earth and then Jazz, she’s like my mama bear. I talk to her about everything and Jazz is so cool, especially for everything that she’s done in this business and she already doesn’t get enough credit for it. She’s so laid back and humble and that’s just somebody that everybody can learn from and she doesn’t talk down to you. She’s just such a cool person.”
