During a recent interview with the Last Minute Wrestling podcast, Veda Scott commented on her decision to continue wrestling or pursuing commentary opportunities. She said,
“I think I can do both, however I recognize the value of committing yourself to one thing, particularly if you’re looking at a higher level like in AEW or WWE or wherever,” Scott said. “Sometimes being versatile is great and having a background is great but also spreading yourself too thin makes it impossible to be good at one thing and many times being ok at many things. For me I love wrestling in the ring, that’s why I got into wrestling, but over time I’ve grown to love the broadcasting side of things, some behind the scenes side of things more than I thought I would and over time I think it evolved […]
I feel myself moving towards that direction more so than in the ring,” she said. “Part of it is just logistically like you can’t physically wrestle forever but I enjoyed doing commentating and broadcasting at times even more than wrestling. I just sort of…I think that I’m good at it but also I enjoy being a part of the storytelling part of pro-wrestling and when you do the commentary that’s all you do, it’s trying to tell the story.”
Scott has worked several episodes of AEW Dark as a special guest commentator.
