Jasmin St. Claire discusses her transition from the porn industry to the wrestling industry

ECW alumni Jasmin St. Claire recently spoke with PW Mania on a wide variety of pro-wrestling-related topics, including her thoughts on transitioning from porn to wrestling, her work with Dolph Ziggler, and details about her one-woman show. Highlights from the interview are below.

On the transition from porn to pro wrestling:

“At first I didn’t really know what to expect. I had a lot more to prove to myself than anyone else. I started wrestling with Sue Saxton and Mando Guerrero, they taught me how to wrestle and helped me a lot along with the Dudley Boys. I didn’t know where it was going, but I knew it would be positive somewhere. People thought I was just a porn girl who can’t wrestle and there’s a lot to it. It’s about winning people’s respect. At the end of the day, I was just there to prove something to myself, no one else. I just kept doing what I was doing and let everything go in one ear and out the other.”

About working with Dolph Ziggler:

“He [Dolph Ziggler] told me he had an improv show in Second City and asked me to host it. He said it was wrestlers and I was definitely okay. I organized it and in my last year of training I decided to go to the conservatory and graduate there. These shows seemed too complicated at first. Then I saw Mike Tyson’s show Undisputed, and it was like an hour long. I realized I could.”

On her One Woman Show:

“I started it and I wrote a book, but I didn’t do anything about it. I was lucky enough to get a director from Second City. This is a big deal for NYC for the Cutting Room, and then Chicago, and I’m excited. People think it’s a comedy, but it’s not a comedy, it’s a story. It is very well made and has undergone about 7-8 trials. Hopefully it can become an hour-long special someday, maybe on Netflix.”
