ECW original Jasmin St Claire has opened up about her move from the world of adult entertainment into pro-wrestling.
St Claire is one of the best-known pornstars in the US, famously having taken part in one of the largest orgies ever filmed, which involved over 300 people. She is probably best known to wrestling fans for her brief time in ECW, where she battled with Francine after proclaiming herself the real “Queen of Extreme”. St. Claire also made appearances in TNA in 2002, reigniting her rivalry with Francine.
In an appearance on adult film producer Holly Randall’s ‘Unfiltered’ podcast, St. Claire said she grew up watching wrestling and being able to join that world was a “lucky break”.
“With the wrestling especially, because I grew up watching that, it was a really lucky break. My last [adult film] contract was with a gentleman named Rob Black, Extreme Associates, and he decided to start a wrestling company.”
After falling out with Black, she then moved over to ECW, where The Blue Meanie, who she was dating at the time, also worked.
“I slowly but surely moseyed on over that way, and then I just stayed. I took actual wrestling classes, but because of my frame I didn’t really wrestle a bunch of matches.”
St. Claire also said she still gets asked to do wrestling signings.
“I was doing that for quite some time, I still get called to do a lot of signing.”
Since leaving wrestling, Jasmin St Claire has gone on to star in more, non-pornographic, movies, including ‘National Lampoon’s Dorm Daze 2’ and more recently the horror film, ‘Bad Apples’.
