Former WWE Diva Debra Marshall on Ric Flair and being cast as the Queen of WCW
2014-06-09 11:00:52


In Your Head Radio with Maria Kanellis
Hosts: Jack E Jones and One Inch Biceps
Recap by Vic Schiavone
Show available at IYHWrestling.com

Where did the "Queen of WCW" gimmick originate from? "Well, at the time I was actually married to (Nitro announcer) Steve "Mongo" McMichael...and my background was I'm an actress and I studied in New York with Lee Strasberg. So they brought me in over there because of my acting and I'm athletic, and I had also won Mrs. Illinois America and Mrs. Texas USA, and so Eric Bischoff was like 'Why don't we make you Queen Debra?'...Eric wanted a real bitchy, debutante Queen Debra, and I am from the South as you can certainly tell by my voice, and I'm definitely a pageant winner. I remember my first interview or the first time on TV he helped me a little bit, but then after that I knew the direction I wanted to go in and what they wanted and what the fans wanted, so I just would write my own stuff."

What was it like being around Ric Flair? "Oh, man, he was so much fun. You would never know what he was going to do, because you're out there, you're on live TV, and you just knew you had to go with whatever he was going to go with...We would all end up back at the hotel after the show, all of us, and it would be just everybody laughing, talking about the show, and then The Nature Boy, oh my gosh; you know he does like to just dance on tables without...he likes to take his robe off and there's nothing up underneath it, but you just don't even pay any attention, it's like 'That's just Ric being Ric'...It was a good time back then."

Other topics discussed included why did she end up leaving WCW for the WWF, which company did she prefer working for, whether Jeff Jarrett ever talked to her about working for TNA, whether she ever have any problems with any of the women in wrestling, and the New England Pro Wrestling FanFest.
