    My Big Break

    My Big Break

    Katarina was born in Germany, got her start in pro wrestling in the UK and travelled all over the world BEFORE being signed to WWE, but how much do you REALLY know about the amazing journey of the uniquely enigmatic and globally exotic superstar known as Katerina Waters? From her controversial moment in time as incestuous sibling "Katie Lea Burchill" in WWE to her supernatural turn as "Winter" in TNA, Katarina's passion for outside-the-box storytelling has driven her to a one-of-a-kind path through the wrestling industry, and on this week's "My Big Break", we discuss EVERYTHING, including:
    - Why she thought the Ultimate Warrior really WAS from "parts unknown"
    - How she landed a slot in the international roster for the NWA's Transatlantic Womens Tournament in 2000
    - Working with the UK's Frontier Wrestling Alliance and the influence of Alex Shane on that scene
    - Why her perspective in her early days as very different than most struggling independent wrestlers
    - The REAL story of how she got hired by WWE (and Tommy Dreamer's impact on that process)
    - Memories of her time in OVW alongside an all-star roster of male and female superstars
    - How she REALLY felt about the incestuous nature of her on-screen relationship with Paul Birchill, and why (spoiler - she LIKED it!)
    - Feelings about bringing a supernatural influence to wrestling TV as "Winter" in TNA
    - Her involvement in "The Other Side of the Ring", a new documentary showcasing Katerina along with fellow wrestling stars (including VOC's own Shelly Martinez!), available digitally on Google Play, Tubi TV and Vimeo on Demand starting May 20th
