Lucky for me, I share a place with a 9 and 7-year-old who study the WWE with the intensity of molecular biologists.

They've dedicated their very existence to dissecting the comings and goings, winnings and losings, history and certain future of the remarkably profitable wrestling-as-soap-opera, 40 year old entertainment in. Ultimately, Mean Mother doesn't agree to the kids watching (instead I get curiously sucked into a particularly good episode), but comes one better with the offer of us interviewing the Funkadactyls together. The Funkadactyls, silly, are also known as the 2012 freshman class, dance-turned-tag team consisting of "Naomi" (Trinity Mc Cray) and "Cameron" (Ariane Andrew) and you can mostly find them flanking their homeboys, superstar wrestlers Broadus Clay aka The Funkasaurus and Tensai aka Sweet T; together they all make up a fight crew called "Planet Funk." The WWE is full of over-the-top names and characters, no ridiculousness is spared, yet it's important to know that the brute force and athleticism on display is also choreographed improvisation, if you will, one that follows a very real story line.

Now we are a PG company and, you know, we really try to gear towards women which is why we have Of the percentage [of female fans] that we do have, eighty percent of them are mothers like yourself.

I feel like a lot of [the negativity and lack of diversity] has changed and it’s great to have so many different people that come from so many different backgrounds.

We were in developmental together we were actually on the road together and started dating on TV.

Do you feel the burden of being 'positive'?

TM: I see myself as a role model and I think that everything that I am putting out is positive. You get a group of seven talented, powerful girls that are on there, but in our daily lives we all have our ups and downs.

Out of all of the Divas we have, there is someone for any fan that is watching. TM: Cameron and I were very close since the day we met. I like to describe our relationship as sisters because we have disagreements, we have arguments, we are together all the time 24/7, and I think it’s natural that we get under each other’s skin. (kid 1): Have you ever been bullied by the Bella Twins [the WWE "heels" who rival The Funckadactyls]?

I just think being an African American Diva, it’s nice to show little girls and boys that if you put in your mind and your heart and dedication towards something, you can make anything happen. So I think that a lot of the stereotypes that have been in the past have totally been broken because everything about the WWE now is totally different now. We love each other, we hate each other but at the end of the day we have each other’s back. Like Trinity said, no matter what, you are going to have your ups and downs, your disagreements especially when you travel—and we travel all the time together. TM: We combined with Funkasaurus, which is who we valet and dance for. We wanted a dinosaur name to match his name so we ended up with The Funkadactyls. It feels great because now Trinity and I can go around and talk about how to stop bullying and to prevent it from happening through the WWE Be a Star program. TM: On TV as our characters, yes, but not in real life. They are sweet, they are funny, but on TV we are acting; we are playing a role and pretending.
