Whatever happened to Bionic J?
One wrestler I get asked about all the time is former ARSION gaijin Bionic J. She's currently in Tokyo on holidays and did a brief interview. First a little history. Her real name is Jessica Soto and she's from California. She was in ARSION beginning with their debut in 1998. First she was Reggie Bennett's cousin Jessie Bennett but later was Bionic J. She left ARSION in April 2003 when Yumiko Hotta bought the company. Fans and even promoters have asked me about her ever since. I had heard various things but knew that she quit the wrestling business. She lived in San Francisco for a while but now lives in San Jose and works as a customer service manager in the home building industry. She went to a JWP show while in Tokyo and said it brought back a lot of memories. Jessica says she doesn't watch wrestling in the US and has retired from the business. Good luck to her in her future endeavors.
