As noted, Zeda was released from NXT earlier this month. Following her release from WWE, Zeda spoke with The Roman Show about the situation and her future plans. Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On if she’ll return for this year’s Mae Young Classic: “I have no idea if I’ll be in the Mae Young Classic. I hope I am it. It would be awesome. In the indies I am wiling to wrestle anyone because I want to get out there because I’ve really been exposed only to NXT for the most part at least here in Florida. Of course, I want to wrestle [another WWE MYC competitor], Renee Michelle.”
On working the tournament last year: “It was a great experience, very different. Before I went to NXT it was like I had some indie wrestling friends and I saw some shows here and there, but not a lot. Going in there it’s like learning how everything is done and then coming [to the WWE MYC] I’m like, wow, they’re more for TV and more detailed because they have to be.”
On if she plans to go back to MMA or wrestling: “No, I want to focus my time in wrestling. I’ve spent ten years in MMA. After doing all that, doing MMA, and the entertainment industry, like singing and dance. I was always torn between the two. I was like ‘Should I chase the MMA career or acting/modeling career?’ Afterwards, when I realized there was [wrestling], this was more fitting for me and I really want to explore this route.”
