Bumping Up…Aja Perera

Interviews can be a tricky topic. Not only do you have to create engaging content, but you also have to come up with questions that make for a cohesive read. And that’s all before you’re even able to find time in the interviewee’s busy schedule to ask the questions.

If it were an interview with someone you’re already aware of, then its more likely you will read it, right? But what about those you don’t know. You could be missing out on getting to know your next new favourite wrestler, and you wouldn’t even know it.

So, in order to spread the word on talent on the indie circuit, I got straight to the basics. Bumping Up is here to point you in their direction and broaden your scope on new talent and promotions. If you like what you read, give them a follow & check out their next show. You never know where all this will take you.
So without further ado, let’s get down to brass tacks…

Name: Aja Perera

Age: 24

Hometown: Athens, Georgia

How many years have you been a professional wrestler?
It’ll be 6 years for me in August 2019.

Who are your role models? (either currently or growing up)
Since the beginning of time, ive looked up to Shawn Michaels, Shane Helms, and Manami Toyota.

Was this something you always wanted to do or did you slowly transition from ‘9-5’ to where you are now.
It was something I’ve always loved, but I didn’t know I wanted to do it util I went to my first indie show, then my first training session.

What are your main goals for the next few years?
I really want to make this a full time thing and gain some type of a contract. That’s all I’m focused on this year.

What’s your proudest achievement in your career so far?
Going to Japan. It has been a goal or mine for years. It really changed my body and mindset.

And finally where are some of the promotions fans can currently see you in action?
I wrestle regularly for SHINE wrestling and Queens of Combat. I also wrestle EVERYWHERE! so just keep an eye out for me on a poster in your area!
