As noted, Rosa Mendes announced her retirement from pro wrestling earlier this week. Mendes recently spoke with WWE.com about her career and more.
On what led to her announcing her retirement:
“So, as you know, I’m a new mom. Well, not that new, it’s been a year [laughs]. But, I just feel like as you get older, your dreams evolve. For years, my dream was to become a WWE champion. And, now that I’ve brought a life into this world, and I’m with the man of my dreams, it’s different.”
On her favorite moments in WWE:
“My favorite moment was when I jumped over the barricade. My obsession with Beth Phoenix was just so out of this world that I had to jump over the railing and attack Melina … several times! But then, WWE officials said, “Wow, I think we have a star on our hands.” So that was a big moment.”
