Kathleen Hoffman Interview (April 2015)


Particle Don: Tell the ParticleDon.com readers a little bit about yourself. What are some of your non-wrestling hobbies? What is your job occupation?

Kathleen: I'm Kathleen. I will be 30 in September. I'm a single mom with 1 son. He will be 7 in November. I've played drums since I was 12 years old. I ride my BMX bike, skateboard and snowboard, and drive cars and motorbikes. I really think that I should be a man and not a woman, lol.

I've worked as an automotive painter for the last 13 years. I had a 2 year break in 2010, because I had cancer. It was a really tough time with a lot of tears and pain...but right now I'm OK.

Particle Don: What's the best live wrestling show you've seen?

Kathleen: I have seen so many great live shows. Whether it's CZW, AIW, Chikara or Rockstar, there were so many many great shows. However, the best in recent memory was last year when Tim Donst won the AIW title.

Particle Don: Any plans on seeing any live shows in 2015?

Kathleen: I hope that I can go this Saturday to Best of the Best. I'd also like to go to Cage of Death at the end of the year.

Particle Don: What do you think of Nick Gage coming back to CZW?

Kathleen: I think it's enough when I say HELL YEAH! Nick f'n Gage! :D

Particle Don: Why are you living in Germany right now? When will you be back?

Kathleen: My Mom is from Germany, and my Dad is from the USA. They're broken up. At age 12, I would go with my mom to Germany. I really miss this time. Me and my dad would go to Wrestling events, I really miss him. He passed away 2012. He had a heart attack the same year I lost my step brother. He had cancer (leukemia). It's still really hard for me, but that's another story.

I commute between Germany and the USA. I have a little apartment in Philly (since last December) and an apartment here in Germany. Sooner or later, I must decide where to stay. For the moment, it's OK.

Particle Don: Do you have any musical or creative endeavors you'd like to share?

Kathleen: Like I said before, I've played drums since I was 12 years old, non-stop. And yeah, when I play, my aggression can come out, lol. I don't play in a band or anything like that.

Particle Don: Were you a fan of regular wrestling before you got into deathmatches? If so, how, and what federations did you follow? Who are some of your favorite non-deathmatch wrestlers?

Kathleen: As a young kid, I watched a lot of WCW and ECW. My favorite non-deathmatch wrestlers are Tim Donst and Jake"The Snake" Roberts! My other favorites are all Deathmatch wrestlers.

Particle Don: What was the first deathmatch tournament you saw on film? What was the first deathmatch tournament you attended live?

Kathleen: Cage Of Death was my first CZW film. My first live show was ECW, but don't ask me which show it was. I was 10!

Particle Don: Do you have any special memories from a live event?

Kathleen: As a kid, my Dad asked me if I wanted to go with him to an ECW event. He said there would be blood! My answer to his question was: Hell Yeah, lets go! Since this day, I've been a huge fan. I was captivated by guys like Sandman, Mick Foley, Tommy Dreamer and Raven.

Particle Don: Where did you first hear of Particle Don?

Kathleen: On Twitter.

Particle Don: What wrestler would you like to hear Particle Don write words for?

Kathleen: Tim Donst is a great young guy. He is going through a really hard time right now. Maybe you could write a song about him?

Particle Don: Throughout wrestling history, what is your favorite entrance theme? Why?

Kathleen: Oh my. There are so many, but my favorite is Tim Donst's AIW entrance theme, "Heartjacker" by Recluse. I just love that music!

Particle Don: What has been your favorite venue to watch wrestling shows live, and why?

Kathleen: I love CZW, AIW, Rockstar Pro and Chikara. Every event is the best...I love all the venues.

Particle Don: What would be your dream match?

Kathleen: Tim Donst vs. Mick Foley...this would be really awesome.

Particle Don: What are some of your favorite bands?

Kathleen: Hatebreed, Madball, Agnostic Front, Terror, Death By Stereo, Saliva, Seether and many, many more.

Particle Don: Any recommendations of specific wrestling shows or promotions we should check out? where can we find it?

Kathleen: AIW! www.AIWrestling.com, Twitter

Particle Don: What are you looking forward to with deathmatch wrestling in 2015? Do you plan on attending any shows?

Kathleen: I hope the shows are fun like always, and that none of my favorite promotions close.

I will attend AIW and CZW shows as often as I can. Also, I really hope that Tim Donst comes back really fast!

I don't have any pics, because we had a flood last year, and all my pictures were destroyed!

Thank you for having me here!

Don't forget to support Tim Donst!!!!
