Media, and perhaps society as a whole by extension, is quite hung the hell up on twins. On the screen, twins are portrayed as creepy, inhuman and overly sexualized. Wrestling often takes this a step further–many twin tag teams are booked as incompetent tricksters, relying on the cheap heat of “twin magic”. And sometimes they’re not even twins! It’s just two dudes who look alike that got the same haircut. Was it a struggle for you to maintain an identity, as individual performers and as a team? Did you ever feel pressure to “up the sex factor” of your twin status for wrestling audiences?

Lucy: Hmm, I never really thought about maintaining my identity. We are slightly naïve to a lot of things like that and pretty much just bounce along in our daily lives. Especially when we were wrestling, we didn’t think too much about what people thought about us. We’ve always been twins and don’t know any different and we absolutely love being twins, so people can take us or leave us, it makes no difference to us. Wrestling plus the sex factor…ugh!!!

Is it just us that gets irked by how everything these days needs to have some sort of sex factor? It’s funny though as the last two years or so we were wrestling, we got told numerous times that we needed to act less like 10 year olds and more like women. We used to get so mad because we just wanted to be us.

We wanted kids to be able to watch us and relate in some way to us. We thought if kids wanted to wear our ring gear or dress like us, they could without their parents worrying that their skirt is too short or the tops barely there.

We didn’t so much feel pressure, though, I remember doing different photo-shoots at the time to show that we could be more ‘diva’ esque. Looking back, even though we had fun stepping out of our comfort zones and being creative with the girls on those shoots (thank you Kayleigh and Abi) I wish we would have stuck to our guns a little more.The same goes for “bikini battle royals”–I wish I had the guts to have simply said no. They were always terribly awkward and we hated them with a passion. It’s not our thing. We just wanted to wrestle.

Kelly: Haha, “upping the sex factor” for wrestling audiences was never something me and Lucy were very good at, quite simply because we didn’t want to. We work with kids and have always had them in the back of our minds.

We wanted to be role models and show them we could wear pink and be girly, but go out and fight like superheroes. Any time we had to do things to be considered “sexy” was just awkward, especially if it involved trying to wrestle while doing so.

Now don’t get me wrong, we still enjoyed getting made up by the professionals at TNA and getting to feel a bit glamorous for TV, but at the end of the day, you can put as much make up on me as you want but I’m still going to act like the kid who wanted to grow up, wear spandex and be thrown around a ring for a living!

How did teaming with someone you’ve literally known your whole life make your in-ring communication different from other teams you’ve worked with, if at all? Do you ever something funny stuck in your head and have to try to not think about it or laugh during the match?

Lucy: We would have to say that we guess other teams don’t quite gel together as much as we do. We haven’t worked with another tag team who have always and primarily been a tag team before, so we would say we differ in that we click together 110% and are usually always on the same page. We get what each other wants from a story or match and know what’s best for the team and how we fit.

We think it was hard for a lot of people to hear us talk in wrestling because we talk 100 miles per hour anyway, but add that to us being incredibly passionate about wrestling and it’s rather difficult. We think our twin language definitely came out when it came to talking about a match or storyline.

Kelly: As far as in the ring goes, we were always very focused on what we had to do, so we rarely tried to make each other laugh, though if there was a time when we were feeling more laid back we would sing the “Wizard Rap” from Workaholics to each other to calm each other down! Little odd but we love that show!

If the 90’s taught me anything about wrestling, is that it doesn’t pay. We’ve had wrestling race car drivers, garbage collectors, clowns, dentists; but so few culinary gimmicks! Do you have any memories or stories of big, macho manly man wrestlers just going bugnuts over sugar baked goodness?

Lucy: Haha, we love this question because of course we have tons of memories and stories that involve wrestlers and cupcakes. In fact, we have actually spent the past two years writing a cookbook that combines these stories with the recipes. It is a dream of ours to get it published one day–so stay tuned!

Kelly: Funnily enough our love of cupcakes actually grew when we first came over to the states and that was exactly because “big, macho manly man wrestlers” went “bugnuts over sugar baked” goodies.

Where does baking fall into your personal identity as feminine women? To prove this isn’t a loaded question: baking is important to me, as an adult, because I didn’t get to live that “baking pies with Mama” American girlhood. It’s very healing, and empowering for me, that sort of maternal “provider” space you get in when you give a friend a slice of home-baked pound cake. Is baking, for you, reclaiming this idea of where a woman’s place is–since you used to make a living kicking other girls in the chest–or is it sort of following suit with your ideas of what femininity looks like?

Lucy: I never really thought about it like that. We grew up cooking with our Grandparents and always loved being in the kitchen, so we kind of laugh at the stereotypes or when people say “women belong in the kitchen” to me it’s not really offensive. I love being in the kitchen and I do love the feeling of making something fresh and passing it on to family and friends, it’s the best!

Furthermore, in our family it’s our Grandad who absolutely adores being in the kitchen, he would spend every minute in there if he could, so I don’t necessarily see it as being a feminine thing.

We love being in the kitchen and baking or cooking to make people happy so that’s why we do it. With Italian grandparents, food is everything.

Kelly: Like Lucy said, it’s our Grandad who will sit and talk to us about cooking and what he wants to make next in the kitchen 24/7, so we don’t really think of it as a feminine thing to do. Like a lot of things in life, I think its one of those things people say or try to put a label on to be controversial. Continue reading »

The Blossom Twins are the most famous female tag team from the UK; spending time in OVW and TNA in the States and also appearing on the first season of British Boot Camp.

For the people who don’t know who you are (which there can’t be many), could you please introduce yourselves?

Both: Aww haha, we are Lucy and Kelly; we wrestled as Hannah and Holly of The Blossom Twins for 9 years. Most notably, we wrestled for OVW, TNA and appeared on TNA British Boot Camp! Ooh and we also appeared in Sky 1’s A League Of Their Own!

How did you get into the world of wrestling?

Kelly: We became fans at the age of 12 and simply fell in love with it. Everything became about wrestling and it became our focus.

Lucy: We probably started planning from the age of 14 to save up and go to wrestling school. We planned and prepared until a week after our 16th birthday, our Dad drove us all the way to Portsmouth to train (long story, we will explain in the autobiography) we had one session, felt like we had been hit by a truck the next day but couldn’t stop smiling. The week after, we headed to Manchester’s FutureShock (more appropriate as it is a smidge closer) and the rest is history.

Where did you train and who trained you?

Lucy: We trained with FutureShock for about two years; being trained by the likes of Damon Leigh and Dom Travis, who we adored and learnt so much from. They were definitely the first two people who brought our confidence out and made us believe in ourselves.

Kelly: After those two years, we still trained with them but also met a bunch of guys at GPW, like Bubblegum and El Ligero and they introduced us to the guys at SAS wrestling, mainly Barry (Charming Don Charles) and Spud. For the next three years, we trained under their wings and really developed as performers and learnt a huge amount as to what we wanted to be character wise.

From there, we went to OVW and trained with the likes of Rip Rogers, Nick Dinsmore, Mike Mondo, Chris Silvio, Package Chris Sharpe, Ali Vaez, James Paredyse Long, etc. And everything clicked into place!

Do you remember your first pro match as a tag team?

Both: Our first match as a tag team was part of a FutureShock tag gauntlet. We may have got through one round but we can’t quite remember, it’s written down somewhere! We do remember running out and giving it our all!

A lot of people noticed you when you appeared on ChickFight TV, where you faced Jade and Queen Maya. Was that a big moment for you at the time?

Both: We’d have to say yes, as we were not used to wrestling girls at the time. We trained with guys and wrestled guys at FutureShock, so it was definitely out of our comfort zone. Continue reading »
