Nyla Rose Comments On Being Able To Represent The Transgender Community On AEW TV


During a recent interview with Good Morning Washington, AEW star Nyla Rose commented on representing the transgender community on AEW television, working with Vickie Guerrero, and more. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On representing the trans community on AEW TV: “It means a lot. There are a lot of eyes on me at any given moment. I just want to do my communities proud, so it was a little bit of pressure. But I like that pressure because it keeps me on the straight and narrow and it keeps me having goals in mind and it gives me something to push for.”

On having Vickie Guerrero as her manager: “It’s a little bit of pressure, but in all honesty, it’s a lot of pride. I feel so proud that this woman with this incredible legacy, you know, part of this amazing, like you said, world-renowned wrestling family. You could go anywhere in the world and say, ‘Guerrero,’ anybody knows who you’re talking about. Chose to be along my side. So it’s really cool and it’s an immense sense of pride from me. And I just want to go out there every day and make Vickie proud that she chose the right person.”

On the Black wrestlers who have inspired her: “All of them. I know that’s kind of a cop-out answer, but honestly all of them. Having, having lived through the stripe of what a black female wrestler goes through, and admittedly, even my struggles would be a little different than a cisgender black female. But still, I’ve experienced it. So to see all of them continuously push and overcome those obstacles, it’s nothing short of a miracle in all honesty. But if I were to name names, Trish Adora. You know, she’s a local hero if you will. She’s someone who really inspires me. But like you said, Jazz, Jacqueline. Growing up, Jacqueline was a huge influence to me.”
