Richie Carter: For weeks and weeks now I have promised to bring a little sensuality to my interview column…and for almost as long I’ve been absent. Well after a long Christmas break I’m finally living up to that promise…and in in spades too! She is a much respected woman who has recently proven herself to be just as good if not better in the ring…the lovely Alana Allure.
Hailing from Quad Cities in Iowa this beautiful young woman with a mocha skin tone infused with caramel is perhaps best known as the gorgeous manager of Over The Edge. Her skills in this role have helped to keep the duo of James ‘Eyesnsane’ Hughes and the ninja Killemall near the top of the food chain in whatever division they’ve ventured. She’s stood by her charges as they’ve emerged as the great Aut Pax Aut Bellum’s greatest long term threat and seen James become the widely regarded best Young Lions Champion to date. Those are the accomplishments that made the early parts of her career a success.
But by far the most successful moment of her career in this industry was just recently at Trial By Fire. An event where she pinned two former FWA Women’s Champions in succession to take home the belt. It was an impressive feat defeating Madison West and Dinorah Redgrave in one night, a feat that has introduced the world to the prospect that Alana is more than just a gorgeous manager.
Firstly Alana I have two points; welcome to the show and wow you look amazing.
Alana Allure: Thank you so much for having me, and it's not as easy as one may think, being the most alluring woman in the business today.
Richie Carter: And before I forget congratulations on the big win, it’s one that a lot of people didn’t see coming.
Alana Allure: Thank you, it's really an honor to join the ranks of the women that have held this title in the past. You know I think it's interesting that some did not see it coming, there was quite a bit of focus on Dinorah and Maddie, leading up to the match, however as I have maintained I'm not just another pretty face.
Richie Carter: How does it feel to be the new Women’s Champion? Throughout your career you’ve been looked at as just a manager even your friends in Dinorah and Madison called you just a manager. So how does it feel to now be the Champion?
Alana Allure: It's a truely great feeling to be the new Women's champion. While also knowing that I worked for it, step by step, match by match, to get here. It's time for me to be a rolemodel for all the aspiring women that will come behind me, it's time for me to be up to the challenge of not only being a fighting champion, but blazing my trail into the history of the FWA as many proud women have done before me. Being the new women's champion is nearly indescribable, I knew I could do it, I remained focused on this goal since my arrival, and achieving it was such a surreal moment.
Richie Carter: You competed in two matches in one night to win that Championship, which win was bigger; beating the former Champion Madison or beating Dinorah and winning the series?
Alana Allure: That's a tough question, both of those women fought there hearts out and left nothing in that ring. Maddie can easily cause us to recall a time when thw women's division was in it's golden era. While Dinorah is the representation of the youth generation. I had to go out there and fight figuratively the past and the present, while representing the future. Though if I had to choose one of those matches, it would be the second match, Maddie gave me everything she had, and to then have to go all out with Dinorah, who held nothing back, wow it was huge.
Richie Carter: What about Over The Edge as a whole; now that you’ve experienced your own success will we see you still showing the same dedication to James and Killemall’s career?
Alana Allure: Oh, definately. Remember it was Dinorah and her reign that brought the women's division back from the brink. It was Eyesnsane that cemented himself as the greatest Young Lion champion in history, all the while Killemall has made the most of each of the very few opportunites he was given having beat some of the bigger names on Fight Night, while outlast most if not all of his contemporaries. Mark my words, I will only be working harder and harder as we go forward. We tell everybody to expect the best, we remain underated, untill we get our shot, until we take our chances, and then we make you look again, this is going to be a huge year for Over the Edge, just you watch.
Richie Carter: With the FWA having featured Women like Jillian De Silva, Moira Crawford, Jenny and Gabrielle Ignito who’ve all gone on to take it to the boys and win is there pressure there for you to do the same?
Alana Allure: You know we could argue which of those women will go down as the best this business has seen. I feel a responsibility to gout there and give the FWA fans the very best I can give, anytime and anyplace, against anyone. I don't feel pressure to follow in there footsteps, or to do what they have done. I am Alana Allure and I will be the best Alana this world has ever seen. I am very open to the idea of competing at all levels, men, women, it makes no difference to me. Those women broke down barriers so that I, now can be looked at as a competitor and not just a woman, in a single division, only capable of one thing. So as opportunities arise for me I am sure I will be beating the boys just the same.
Richie Carter: What about the future of the Women’s division, now that you are Champion do you see big things in store?
Alana Allure: Honestly I do, I see the FWA women's division, stacked with talent right now. I am going to have to stay ontop of my game. Dinorah is a force to be reckoned with, Nolee is back from her tour and will be able to focus more on her in ring abilities, and we have strong newcomers like Jennifer Sky. Certainly the future of the division is bright, there will be big matches and a high level of competition, as a matter of fact I would say the FWA is entering into the second golden age of the women's division, and we are some of the women that will be remembered in a similar light as those that paved the way for us.
Richie Carter: Alright now for a few more personal questions. Are you all…’natural’?
Alana Allure: Yes, I am. No plastic here, just exercise and as much home cooking as I can get, other than that balenced meals.
Richie Carter: What about your…personal life. Is there any romance in the works for you Ms. Allure?
Alana Allure: You know, I can say I enjoy my private life, but I like it to be private. I will say that I am single, believe it or not, I don't get alot of date offers, but single life has it's advantages.
Richie Carter: What about your stance on the…sexuality of allot of your fellow women in the FWA?
Alana Allure: Let me just say, women are beautiful, especially here in the FWA. I believe that people should be with who ever makes them happy. I think that we all have a good understanding of who we are amongst one another. I think the sexuality is a refelection in part of the confident and strong women we have in the FWA right now. (she giggles) To political an answer?
Richie Carter: You’ve been referred to as a role model but who’s your role model?
Alana Allure: Aww, I try to set a good example, especially for the younger ladies out there. This is actually an easy one, Moira Crawford, I would have to say is a woman that I have held in high reguard for some time, back when I was simly a fan working my way through college. I got to see these women blaze trails for us to be able to follow in. Moira in my humble opinion did it better than most.
Richie Carter: Who’s the one person in the FWA and the one person outside of the FWA you would love to compete against?
Alana Allure: Well, outside the FWA would be Melina Perez, she's a very atheletic and flexible lady, it would make for a nice marquee win for me. Inside the FWA, I would have to say Chris Kennedy.
Richie Carter: What made you get into the wrestling business in the first place?
Alana Allure: Well, I have been a fan since I was a littel girl. I remember watching the first three wrestlemanias with my grandfather and was hooked instantly, there was just this feeling that you got in watching, and as I have competed that feeling just gets stronger and stronger. I would suppose I was drawn to it.
Richie Carter: Now for a little word association, Just tell me what comes to mind first; Eyesnsane?
Alana Allure: Unpredictable
Richie Carter: Killemall?
Alana Allure: Ninja
Richie Carter: Dinorah?
Alana Allure: Tatoos
Richie Carter: Madison?
Alana Allure: Tits
Richie Carter: Gabrielle?
Alana Allure: Legend
Richie Carter: And finally The Women’s Championship?
Alana Allure: Mine!
Richie Carter: How do you want to be remembered when your career comes to a close?
Alana Allure: Seeing as how my career is just starting, that's tough. I will strive to be remember as a dominating woman, one who knew no boundries or limits, one who would not back down from any challenge. A woman who carried herself and her many titles reigns in such a positive light that she is mentioned in the same breathe with the likes of Gabrielle, Moira, and Jillian.
Richie Carter: I must thank you for your time Alana; it has been a pleasure for the sense just meeting you. I wish you all the best for the future.
Alana Allure: Thank you, Richie. I enjoyed being here, maybe you can get an exclusive Over the Edge interview in the future with all of us. It has been nice to meet you as well.
