2). Describe your experience being a trained at the Ring of Honor Wrestling Academy and how it lead you to competing for Shimmer?

Jenny Rose: “I joined the Ring of Honor DOJO when I was 17 years old. They need my parents to sign for me since I was a minor. We trained at the Ring of Honor DOJO about 2-3 times a week. I was very nervous, but always kept quiet and listened to my instructors. The Ring of Honor DOJO was a perfect place for me to start my training before Japan”.

3). What was the inspiration behind the Jamilia Craft Character?

Jenny Rose: “It’s simple, Jamilia Craft was different. My trainer’s came up with the gear inspired by Kyoko Inouse. I decided to wear a mask as a tribute to my trainer Delirious. I was always about creativity and wanted to separate myself from everyone else”.

4). What was Jamilia Craft most memorable match from 2010 to Mid-2011?

Jenny Rose: “WOW those matches feel like forever ago! A stand out match was against Mercedes Martinez; she’s an amazing wrestler and I’ll never forget how well she treated me”.

5). Why change your name from Jamilia Craft to Jenny Rose; also what’s the difference between the two characters?

Jenny Rose: “I got signed to Pro Wrestling Diana in Japan after almost 2 years of wrestling in America. They had a different image for me and it was time to move on. My spirit is still the same”.

6). Jenny, you went over to Japan and competed for the Diana Promotion was it difficult converting from American Style to Japanese Style?

Jenny Rose: “Absolutely everything about Japan was challenging for me. The culture, training, and matches. Before Japan I was more fixed on being a technical wrestler. I learned very quickly that I had to fight harder against the veterans and desperate young girls. I learned and worked my way from very bottom in Japan where I learned their style”.

7). Jenny are the fans different in Japan compare to the United States?

Jenny Rose: “Japanese fans are very different than American fans. In Japan, they are silent and reserved. In the United States we show our feelings. This is how I would describe our cultures as well. I really love and enjoy competing in Japan”.

8).Describe your most memorable feud and match from the Diana Promotion in Japan?

Jenny Rose: “I had many memorable matches in Diana, but my most honorable match was at Diana’s 2 Year Anniversary Show; the Semi Main Event at Kawasaki Arena it was Manami Toyota and myself vs Mima Shimoda and Takako Inoue. I made my entrance last holding a Diana Promotion Flag and the match was name after me. I couldn’t believe the level of respect they have shown that night. They reorganized how hard I worked and it paid off; it was such a dream come true”.
