Roxanne Perez recently spoke with Metro UK’s Alistair McGeorge to discuss a variety of topics, including her desire to bring the issue of mental health into wrestling, the time she pitched the idea to WWE management, and more.
You can check out some highlights from the interview below:
On wanting to bring the issue of mental health into wrestling: “It’s so cool. I’ve always wanted to bring mental health into wrestling somehow and never thought it was possible. It’s really cool to be able to change people’s lives. I feel like that’s the most important thing that I’ve always wanted to do. If I can be that voice that helps someone else know that they’re not alone, then that means the world to me.”
On how it’s something she pitched when she first came in: “Just talking about mental health, at least, that was something when I first got to NXT and told them I would love to do something with this. They were like, ‘Alright, we’ll see.’”
