Katarina Waters Talks WWE/TNA Return, Treatment of Women in Wrestling


Czech wrestling website Art of Wrestling have published an interview with former WWE Diva and TNA Knockout Katarina Waters.

The woman formerly known as Katie Lea Burchill and Winter was asked if she would ever consider returning to a full-time wrestling schedule with either of the two top companies. She replied, “Perhaps if it was the right opportunity. I enjoyed myself in both places. I just don’t know if I would want to be quite so restricted again as I would be in WWE.”

The two-time Knockouts Champion was also asked about her opinion on whether women are treated differently to men in the wrestling business. She responded, “Yes, to an extent. Obviously they get less coverage and airtime than the men, but I think that is also due to the nature of the business and the demands of the audience. I don’t think that a show that was 50% women’s matches would do as well in a mainstream capacity. So there are less women’s matches which is fine, but sometimes people equate that with ‘less important’, which is a mistake.”

Katarina also discussed what she is up to recently, and revealed that she has just wrapped up work on her own short film. She said, “I am in Los Angeles, pursuing acting and writing. I just shot my own short film and would like to put more of my own projects together. In the meantime, I am still wrestling independently and having a great time doing it!”

Katarina also discussed her time in OVW, her wrestling influences and her favorite moments of her career. You can check the whole interview here.
