On a recent edition of the “Sports Guys Talking Wrestling” podcast, Tiffany Stratton explained how gymnastics helped prepare her for her wrestling career. The reigning WWE NXT Women’s Champion said,
“[Gymnastics gives you] all the tools you need to be a great athlete and a great athlete within wrestling, but I really feel like the biggest thing I took away from it is the mental strength that it teaches you. In gymnastics you have to be so mentally tough, you have to be able to fight through learning new skills, getting mental blocks, just like flat-out determination and being disciplined and stuff like that. So I think gymnastics has really helped with the mindset that I have today and the view I have on sports and working out, staying disciplined and stuff like that.”
On a recent edition of the “Busted Open Radio” podcast, Roxanne Perez reflected on her supermarket brawl with Blair Davenport that aired on WWE NXT TV earlier this week.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On if she’s spoken to Booker T since her recent grocery store brawl: “I haven’t been able to see him after it aired. When I see him, I’m going to ask him what he thought. It’s so cool to be able to kind of re-live history in a way and to be able to do something that my trainer did in his career. That was amazing. Booker T and Stone Cold, that grocery store fight was one of my favorites to go back on YouTube and watch as a kid because I thought it was hilarious. To be able to do that was pretty cool.”
Roxanne Perez on how Shawn Michaels reacted to the segment: “I was looking at Shawn while it was airing and he was watching like, ‘Oh, OH!’”
