Katarina Waters made her Impact return last month in May and is being showcased as Grado‘s girlfriend. Waters, who returned to Impact under the ring name of Katarina Leigh, was previously known as Winter on Impact Wrestling (formerly TNA) and Katie Lea Burchill in the WWE. For the past several years, Waters had been making her rounds on the independent scene. Although she was never able to capture gold in the WWE, she is a decorated wrestler in both TNA and multiple promotions in the independent scene.
In the interview, she speaks on several topics. She speaks of her relationship with Grado as his girlfriend and how they are known as the “It couple” of Impact:
It’s very exciting to be here. I’m having the best time ever and working with Grado is a blast as I’m sure you can imagine, so it’s all good on my side. I’m not surprised at all [of being known as Impact’s “It Couple”]. Also known as the Power Couple, also known as Gradorino or should I say Katarado. There is no turning back now.
She mentions who she would like to get into the ring with and if she is afraid of any potential competitor:
I could say because I’m a competitor and I’m not scared of anybody, I would say I’m pretty psyched to be going to the ring with all of them. The newest addition Tessa Blanchard, she’s obviously an icon already, so that’s something to go up against. Su Yung, which maybe I’d be a little scared of Su Yung. Allie, who is just doing an amazing job. I was saying that to her recently, what I really love about her is that she’s this cute little blond bunny thing but then when she gets in the ring and she’s switched on, she’s angry, has so much attitude, so much fire it’s amazing. Taya, obviously. We had a match already and it was awesome, would love to do that again.
She sheds some light on her personal life which includes tarot cards, and if she could spend some time with a band, who would it be?
Katarina recently had a match with the current Knockout Champion Su Yung at the One Night Only PPV: Zero Fear, which you can check out here for the match.
