AEW wrestler Marina Shafir was a recent guest on “The Sessions with Renee Paquette” podcast to discuss a variety of topics, including trying to find her footing in AEW and who she’d like to work with in the future.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On trying to find her footing in AEW: “For me personally, just having to have dealt with some struggles these last few months, I just haven’t really been happy with… I just know there’s more to me, and I’m not doing myself any service. The reason I had that was because I was so happy. I was happy at home, and I was happy with myself. I know I worked hard, and I had nothing. I gotta remind myself every day that I have nothing to f**king lose. I refuse to sell out. I refuse to f**king give someone something I know I don’t have. Humble me. I’m ready. That’s the only way you’re gonna get that respect. When I approach this stuff, I just really wanna work with people, really bad.”
On who she wants to work with in AEW: “Serena (Deeb), easy. Mercedes (Martinez), easy. Athena, holy sh*t, we’d beat the sh*t out of each other. Gimme Britt (Baker). Gimme Jamie (Hayter). No, f**k that. Give me Kiera (Hogan), give me Diamanté, give me all the girls that are also in that bubble, who wanna break that ceiling. I want all those girls because everybody has something to offer, not just one f**king person. For the women, I feel like once we get back to understanding how to seriously lean on each other and trust, it’s just gonna be what it is.”
