Heidi Lovelace is a sexy girl who doesn’t seem to try very hard to be…….sexy.

In her mainstream media interviews she’s very calm and forth coming which counters her ring persona where she provokes the audience before and after she enters the ring.

There’s a menace in her wrestling but I wouldn’t describe her as angry.

On the surface her character is straight forward but clearly with Heidi there is far more to her than meets the eye.

Like her stage name verses her real name, you never would have guessed.

Born Dori Elizabeth Prange her career began in 2010 where she spent her two years in professional wrestling working on the independent circuit for promotions such as Shimmer Women Athletes and Shine Wrestling, before being signed to a contract by Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW), a Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) developmental territory, in 2011.

Heidi Lovelace is also called “The Punk Rock Rag Doll”, and the Golden Girl of IWAMS.

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

On January 11, 2015, Heidi made her Japanese debut for the World Wonder Ring Stardom promotion, teaming with Act Yasukawa in a tag team match.

In watching her videos she reminds me of so many young women that I worked with in the office. No nonsense, let’s get down to work.

In viewing her record she wins far more than she loses and against the newer talent, she dominates. As soon as slender Sabrina Sixx walked through the door, I knew she was going to lose to Heidi.

Her wrestling is very acrobatic and her training is evident in her moves and techniques.

More reviews are available at cagematch.net where they have a solidly trained Indie eye.

One reviewer smiles, “My favorite female working today, Heidi is a mind blowingly great talent, especially for her young age. She can bump and sell like crazy, has great body language and charisma, very clever and effective looking offense, honestly I can’t think of anything she can’t do well. This woman has a massively high ceiling, can’t wait to see what she can do.”

The reports keep coming.

Another suggests, “This rating might be a bit high but whatever Heidi has got to be one of the best up and coming talents right now and she’s got a ton of charisma and her wrestling skills are great for someone who has only been wrestling for five years. Love the punk rock rag doll.”

Sensuous Heidi is from Lafayette, Indiana.

A traditional part of Middle America, most of us know Lafayette by name. Here is more.

Lafayette is located 63 miles northwest of Indianapolis and 105 miles southeast of Chicago.

West Lafayette, on the other side of the Wabash River, is home to Purdue University, which contributes significantly to both communities.

As of this writing some big news is emanating from this very green American city.

According to the informative source jconline.com, on November 9, 2015, the writer Joseph Paul reports, “Subaru on Monday announced another addition to the Lafayette plant’s production line: a three-row crossover.

Production of the new model — a replacement for the Tribeca, which Subaru is retiring — should bring additional investments and jobs to the Lafayette facility, said Tom Easterday, Subaru of Indiana Automotive Inc.’s executive vice president. The number of jobs is unclear, he said, because plans are in “early development stages.” It likely won’t be until 2017 when that information becomes available, Easterday said. Production is expected to begin in 2018.

The announcement comes after the September unveiling of a $140 million expansion expected to add 1,200 jobs by 2017. Another $400 million expansion is still underway.”

It’s nice to see economic growth coming to Lafayette.

If you decided to visit Heidi’s home town you find its very nature oriented and green. Probably more than most would have thought.

Even if you are not an expert in the Indie world, Heidi is clearly a fun one to watch. Her matches are always entertaining and the way she engages the crowd you can feel the energy and the excitement.

This part of Heidi’s performance is very easy to understand.
