The wonderful world of pro wrestling has plenty of interesting people involved in it, and one of them is Sam Leterna. Sam is multi-talented, going from host to commentator. It should go without saying, but in today’s wrestling business that’s very important.
Sam began her journey like most of us, as a kid that fell in love with pro wrestling. At the age of 13, she started to wonder about the inner workings of pro wrestling and how to join the business. The 2008 edition of The Royal Rumble PPV was a special moment for her. Taking place in MSG, the energy of that show was incredible and for her, that was the moment she decided she wanted to be a part of the wrestling business.
Sam grew up in the early 2000s and some of her biggest inspirations are: Victoria, Lance Storm (also her trainer), Billy Kidman, Lita, Trish Stratus, Edge, Randy Orton (Sam’s biggest inspiration), and many more. When Sam was still wrestling, she looked up to British-style wrestlers like: Johnny Saints, William Regal, and Finlay.
Sam has her own YouTube Channel, where she interviews pro wrestling personalities. Her top three so far are with Max Caster for his funny and quick-witted answers; Chris Dickinson for great Banter as they both are from New York, and Daniel Garcia because with him, she was able to fully present Daniel and who he is as a person and wrestler.
Wrestling historically has been a male-dominated sport, and in the last few years we’ve seen women’s wrestling grow and break through barriers in the business. Sam wants to do the same with commentating pro wrestling, creating more opportunities for women wanting to breakthrough.
The future looks bright for Sam. Her goal right now is to work in every major independent promotion in the U.S. and to be become the best female broadcaster in the indies. Thanks to IWTV, she has been able to work with several promotions, growing as a broadcaster in the world of independent pro wrestling. Sam also has the goal to one day be part of a major pro wrestling organization.
Leterna is working really hard to show the world that women can succeed in male-dominate sports. There’s no doubt that Sam will achieve all her goals one day.
