Topic/Subject: Today, I will be showing an interview that involves a punk rock ragdoll.

Wrestler: “The Punk Rock Ragdoll” Ruby Riot (Heidi Lovelace).

Background Information: Ruby Riot is from Lafayette, Indiana. She is trained by Billy Roc and the OVW Wrestling School.

In 2010, she began training with Billy Roc at his School of Roc. She made her debut for JCW at the Arena Chicks at the Gathering! event where she defeated C.J. Lane.

She made her for Shimmer competing in Volume 51 where she teamed up with December in a losing effort to Pink Flash Kira and Sweet Cherrie in a tag team match.

On May 18, 2013, she made her debut for Chikara when she and Saturyne entered the 2013 Tag World Grand Prix.

On May 16, 2012, she received a tryout in Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) against Taeler Hendrix which she failed to win. She made her debut for the promotion under the ring name Heidi Lovelace on May 23, 2012, on an episode of OVW where she lost to C.J Lane.

Throughout her OVW career, she became a OVW Women’s Champion and competed in OVW for a year.

On August 17, 2012, it was announced that she would make her debut at the Shine Wrestling event called Shine 2 under her ring name Heidi Lovelace. At the event, she faced fellow OVW wrestlers Sojournor Bolt and Taeler Hendrix in a three–way match which was won by Bolt.

On May 18, 2013, she made her debut for Chikara when she and Saturyne entered the 2013 Tag World Grand Prix.

Throughout her career in Chikara, she won the Young Lions Cup XI. She competed with Chikara for three years.

She made her first appearance for Beyond Wrestling at St. Louis Sleeper Cell on February 9, 2014.

On January 11, 2015, she made her Japanese debut for the World Wonder Ring Stardom promotion teaming with Act Yasukawa in a tag team match where they defeated Hudson Envy and Kris Wolf.

On January 4, 2017, WWE announced that she had signed with the company and would be reporting to the WWE Performance Center.

On January 13, 2017, she made her in-ring debut at an NXT live event losing to Daria Berenato. On February 23, 2017, she was given her NXT ring name of Ruby Riot.

She made her television debut on March 22, 2017, on an episode of NXT, attacking Nikki Cross and the rest of SAnitY alongside Tye Dillinger, No Way Jose, and Roderick Strong.

She still competes in NXT to this day.


With her unique look and great in-ring wrestler, she could be a threat in the NXT women’s division and possibly the women’s division on the main roster if given a chance.

My Thoughts: Ruby Riot is an interesting individual that has worked hard to get where she is today. She has an unique look that makes her stand out compared to other women’s wrestlers, she has a presence about her inside the ring, she has an interesting character, solid charisma, and she’s a good wrestler in the ring. We riot!

Video: This video contains a WWE.com exclusive interview with Ruby Riot on March 24, 2017.

My Thoughts: This was a solid promo from Ruby Riot as she was introducing her character to the NXT Universe as she recently made her debut.

The interviewer was asking Ruby Riot on why she joined the fight against SAnitY where she responded by saying that she came from a community where she is involved with punk rock music, however, they sometimes fight if they have to as they will stand up for what they believe in. She then talked about how SAnitY are causing havoc in NXT for months and not because of what they believe in or for some reason, it’s because they can.

She then said that she doesn’t stand for that and that’s why she joined Tye Dillinger, No Way Jose, and Roderick Strong. They may not have much similarities to them, but they have one thing in common, a common enemy in SAnitY which is why they will fight against them for NXT. She then talked about Nikki Cross as she gunning for her to show how crazy she truly is and when they win, they will riot.

Ruby Riot is not the best of talkers, but she managed to get her point across with this promo on who she is, what she represent, and why she’s fighting against SAnitY. With more time and development in the Performance Center, she may get better on the mic, but this was solid for her.

Solid promo from Ruby Riot as she introduced her character to the NXT Universe and what she’s about.

Even though I don’t know if WWE will be fully behind her because of her looks, but in NXT, she’s doing pretty well for herself as I could see her being a future top star in the NXT Women’s division. We riot!
