Tommy Dreamer Reveals IMPACT Wrestling Wanted To Sign Roxanne Perez

Pro wrestling legend and ECW original Tommy Dreamer recently made an appearance on Busted Open Radio, where he talked about a number of topics such as how brand-new WWE NXT Women’s Champion Roxanne Perez started the year as the reigning ROH Women’s World Champion, but she was leaving and she had a tryout with IMPACT Wrestling and the promotion wanted to sign her immediately after that because she had one hell of match, though she was open and honest about having a tryout with the WWE.

Tommy Dreamer said:

“Which means he’s [Booker T] a great trainer. He really is because you saw that [Roxanne Perez winning the NXT Women’s Title]. Think about the ride that she’s had in one year. I believe she went into the year as the Ring of Honor Women’s Champion and she’s leaving , she worked IMPACT, had one hell of a match and we were like, ‘We wanna sign her’ but she was like, ‘I got a tryout with WWE.’ ‘Cool, go. Hopefully it works out’ and boom, she’s ending the year defeating Mandy Rose who had one hell of a reign. Congratulations to you. You reinvented your career, you reinvented your life, you made yourself have so much value and then, you know, for Roxanne Perez, what a great year. What a great book-end year.”

“How it is with IMPACT, she was open and honest about, ‘Hey, I have a WWE tryout’ and everybody, ‘Cool, go. Hopefully it works out for you…’ It wasn’t like, no, stay with us. It’s [a] much different vibe than how the industry used to be.”
