Toys for Tots:
For six years, Roger Artigiani and his Asylum Arena staff, in conjunction with Combat Zone Wrestling will continue the tradition of working with the US Marine Corps. to bring the Toys for Tots collection back to the Asylum Arena in December.

We ask that you please bring an unwrapped toy to the Asylum Arena if you are attending one of the two events and donate it to the Toys for Tots program, who will have collection bins at the entrance of the Arena. The mission and goal of the Toys for Tots program is to collect new, unwrapped toys and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community. Though a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope is delivered to less fortunate children that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.

No matter what event you are attending that day, we again, ask you to please donate an unwrapped toy and help an unfortunate child to have a happy Christmas this year.

This week, independent star Alicia comes IN THE ROOM to talk about her upcoming Women Superstars Uncensored match with Nikki Roxx (TNA’s Roxxi). Plus, PWI’s Brady Hicks, with DJ and Kevin McElvaney, talks TNA’s pay per view, Jeff Hardy, The Slammy’s, and what could be coming up for Sting. Check it out at

On Beginning Her Training at a Very Young Age:
I started wrestling when I was rather young. I started training at 13 and doing shows when i was 14. Things like my senior prom and other things kids were doing, wrestling always came first for me. Once you’re in it, you’re in it for life. It’s like an addiction when you’re in wrestling.

On Learning from Mercedes Martinez:
When I started Mercedes Martinez was a golden name. She was experienced, talented, and didn’t take crap from anybody. you need to bring your a game whenever you’re in the ring with her. I was scared to death of her. Even today, in 2010, I got to tell you, I’m still pretty intimidated by her. If I could have the same kind of athleticism and talent as her, I’d be pretty proud of myself.

On Comparing WSU to its More Mainstream Competition:
I think that a lot of the counterparts really focus on different aspects of women’s wrestling. WSU is based in the Northeast and there’s a different style of athleticism. There is really a good balance of all of the different types of women’s wrestling,rolled into one. You can’t know what you’re going to get here because it’s always going to be different … I really like that it’s just raw women’s wrestling.

On Wrestling “Hardcore”:
I’m really flexible. You’re just not going to see me going high flying. I’m actually a fan of that King of the Deathmatch stuff.

All that plus Alicia’s thoughts on wrestling Amy Lee, Mickie Knuckles, Nikki Roxx, and Angel Orsini.
