Beauxx Bombshell Talks Pride In Wrestling & Burlesque Debut

Host Alicia (Al) Salazar spoke with content creator and wrestler Beauxx Bombshell and discussed the importance of pride in wrestling, how he became his authentic self, carrying on the legacy of the divas and her upcoming burlesque debut!

How wrestling has helped bring out his authentic self

“Once I started wrestling and going out and performing. I mean, it just started like the little ounce of fear that I did have of what people were going to think when I was talking about earlier judgment or are you just kind of scared to be myself, like, just started to melt away with every match every performance, it was just like, oh, I’m doing this and I’m like, basically, I’m a bad bitch. And like, I this is like, I don’t know it fueled the confidence to like, kick it in overdrive, basically.

And ever since then I tell people that all the time it’s like the wrestling really pushed me to like to be my full 100% self like and just live with no, like unapologetically no care, like, I don’t care what anybody thinks like at all. And I used to, you know, like, like we all do. And now I could like, I mean, I’ll go out there and wear a skirt, I’ll wear whatever I want. I’ll do whatever I want.”

What pride means in the wrestling community

“With wrestling. Pride is its showing. It’s showing basically a long-standing business. that we are here, and we can be included. And we’re not just throw away gimmicks or caricatures. But we do have a meaningful impact on you know, youth and adults and all types of fans alike. So pretty much that’s what pride means. To me. It’s just living authentically and not caring what people think.”

Carrying the legacy of the Divas era in her in ring career

“It really is important for me to carry on the legacy of the likes of Torrie Wilson, and Lita, all the women I grew up with because I hear a lot ever since I got into training, I hear there is a lot of dogging and dissing of those women in that era. And it’s just kind of sucks because to me, wrestling’s art, and like, you can like what you like and don’t like, what you don’t like, but don’t try to say that the one thing is not like an art, you know what I mean? Like, this is an art, it’s like calling something.

It’s just so it’s like a double standard, always, but I just always hate when the guys like in the school or at the shows, kind of like, whatever, like, you know, and I going to tell them, like, you know, I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for them women, like if it wasn’t for those women, I would not be here wrestling. So, it’s like, they did something. You know what I mean, they inspired me and a lot of people to get in here and do this.

So that means something and like, you can’t kind of erase that. And yeah, like, any chance I get to pay homage to Torrie or any of the girls through my gear on the moves. Like I’m definitely going for it. Like I just, it’s, it literally is at the end of the day. Being that kid again. And like living out my childhood”

How her upcoming burlesque debut came about

“I was performing at Urban Combat Wrestling and Asheville, North Carolina. And there was an individual in the audience who runs a burlesque show in Asheville. She approached me after the show and was like, I love you and everything you’re about and all the energy and confidence and charisma and all that you bring to the ring. And I would be wondering if you were interested in doing my burlesque show, and I was like, what I like I was like, yes, like I thought I was dreaming. And then yes, so I’m officially going to be doing burlesque on July 1 in Asheville, North Carolina.”
