(Catching up with Michelle Elizabeth AKA Shellie Lepere)
Joseph Bruen: Thanks for joining us Shellie! It`s been a long time but let us start from the beginning. Were you fan of wrestling growing up as a kid?
Shellie Lepere: It's a pleasure to be here Joe! I was a huge wrestling fan growing up, and am old enough to remember the first Wrestling. PPV as we knew it didn't exist, so we relied on the newspaper, and I remember cutting pictures of Wendi Richter and Cyndi Lauper out of the newspaper and hung them in my bedroom.
Joseph Bruen: When did you first get involved in the wrestling business? Tell us about your debut.
Shellie Lepere: I'd been attending college for a degree in broadcasting, but had a hard time continuing financially. Not wanting my education to go to waste, I decided to use the experience and explore local broadcasting opportunities. After talking to some friends, I stumbled into the New England wrestling community, and from the beginning, they were very welcoming. The scene in this area really was like a small family.
