Roxxi Laveaux better know as Nikki Roxx on the Independent circuit made her debut on March 2001 after being trained by Killer Kowalski. Soon after, she formed a tag-team with April Hunter called The Killer Babes. It was April Hunter who originally convinced her to try-out at Killer Kowalski’s school, so a tag-team pairing was fitting. She quickly became one of the top female wrestlers on the independent circuit and also made strides in Mexico. The road led her to winning such title as the PGWA Championship, DPW Women’s Championship and many more.
On July 15th 2007 at TNA Wrestling’s Victory Road pay-per-view, she made her TNA debut as “The Voodoo Queen” Roxxi Laveaux aligning herself with the Voodoo Kin Mafia (Kip James & B.G. James). She immediately began a rivalry against Christy Hemme, and began participating in TNA’s Women’s Division.
We recently interviewed April Hunter. I know you’ve wrestled her. What do you think of April?
Well, April is the reason I am a professional wrestler. She was the one who talked me into giving it a try and since that day I have not stopped! I think April is a great wrestler and has a great look. I think any promoter would benefit having her apart of their roster.
What is your ultimate goal in wrestling?
My ultimate goal is to kick ass and enjoy every minute I am in the ring! Of course there is WWE or TNA but ultimately you only live once and why spend the time doing something you don’t love and enjoy.
What would you consider your favorite match?
I’ve had so many great opportunities it’s hard to pick just one match. You learn so much from each one. If I have to pick just one it would be my match against Susan Greene. She has been wrestling for close to 30 years. I learned so much just in that match!
Compared to other female wrestlers, how do you rate yourself?
I think we are all pretty equal. I don’t see anyone as better or less than me. All of us have different talents and when you can bring those talents together they make for a great match.
What do you think of other female wrestlers? Maybe you can tell us your thoughts on Chyna, Trish Stratus, and Tracy Brooks.
I think any girl that can get in the ring in front of a crowd and take the onslaught of the crowd’s comments is a hero. Not only that but just get in there and show everyone that girls are good wrestlers too. It’s an amazing thing.
As for Chyna, she was a pioneer for the girls. She wasn’t some Barbie doll or super model. She was a bodybuilder and she got in there and gave the guys a run for their money. She was my hero! Trish Stratus is great! You saw her first as the valet to T&A (Test and Albert). Then through the years you see her progress into the wrestler she is today. She’s done an amazing job and it motivates me. I see how she worked hard and it paid off.
I’ve actually had the honor to wrestle Tracy a couple times. I enjoy watching her matches and I’m so proud and happy to see how far wrestling has taken her. She totally deserves it!
What got you interested in wrestling?
I’ve always watched wrestling. It was a family thing to sit down and watch wrestling. Then as I got older my mom would bring me to Boston Garden to see the shows. But, I always just thought the wrestlers just showed up and wrestled. I had no idea there was actual training for this sort of thing.
So, one of my buddies asked for me to go to Killer Kowalski’s Wrestling Institution with him and I did. From there I met April Hunter and the rest is history.
Where do you see yourself in five years?
Kicking ass of course!
What’s your favorite TV show and what do you do for fun?
I love ESPN’s Cold Pizza and Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends on Cartoon Network. I love cartoons! Thank you God for making Cartoon Network! .
For fun I love going to the gym, movies, reading comics (yes I love comics too!), and just having fun! Oh yea! And watching wrestling tapes and DVDs!
Do you have any workout tips for us?
Don’t call it dieting! It is limiting your food intake. And, give yourself one meal a week to have whatever you want. But, only one meal! It helps you stay dedicated to your limited food intake.
Is there anything you would like to say to your fans?
I’d like to thank each and every one of them. They are always so great to me! Thank you for your support!
Have you ever seen our site before? What do you think of NinjaPimp?
I think you guys are great! I’m honored to do the interview with NinjaPimp! I’m sure I will make all the other chick wrestlers jealous!
What’s something not many people know about you?
Normally, it’s the comic book thing. No one ever suspects I’m THAT much of a dork but I totally am! I love comics!
Well, thanks for the interview… it has been fun!
