Kayla Sparks Says Thunder Rosa Got Her An AEW Dark: Elevation Opportunity


During a recent appearance on the Shining Wizards podcast, Kayla Sparks commented on working a match during the AEW Dark: Elevation TV tapings that took place from Arthur Ashe Stadium, how Thunder Rosa gave her the opportunity to compete for AEW, and more. You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On getting the opportunity through Rosa and her husband: “Thunder Rosa, her husband Brian called me too, they are both…I can’t thank them enough. Those two, I tell them all the time, ‘You guys are my guardian angels.’ They came in and gave me such an opportunity. When I wrestled at Mission Pro, which was huge for me, they are so great and I love everyone there at Mission Pro. AEW came along and I got the opportunity at Arthur Ashe and they said, ‘Hey, it’s the biggest AEW show, are you available that day?’ ‘Heck yeah!’ I still kick myself, it’s crazy. I can’t believe all this stuff happened this year, it’s such a dream come true. I was so ecstatic. I was calling everyone I knew at three in the morning. I felt so bad, I was waking everyone up.”

On her accomplishments so far: “If it ended tomorrow, there is always opportunity and you want to live for more opportunities. Obviously, I just got back into [wrestling] this past summer and there are so many things I have left to do. If it ended tomorrow, they say ‘always be grateful, you never know, tomorrow could be your last day,’ if it was, I can say that was one of the biggest moments of my life.”
