- Diva Dirt sent the following:

Recently released WWE NXT developmental talent Anya — real name Anna Bogomozaova — joins Diva Dirt exclusively to talk about her departure for the first time. Anna addresses her release, her background in kickboxing, her plans for the future and how she became NXT’s powerhouse Diva due to her 6’1″ frame.

You can listen at this link.

On her release: “I wish I had known [it was coming]. I always asked my coaches what to work on but they always told me I was doing well. Honestly, I wish I had an idea that it might come but I didn’t.

“For now, I need to take a break until I heal but I’m always open to opportunities and to do MMA or wrestling.”

On joining WWE: “I sent my resume out to WWE. I wasn’t a huge fan but I loved the show and always wanted to try something new in my sports career and wrestling seemed like a lot of fun and I wanted to try it. They called me back within a day and asked me to train in Tampa and I fell in love after five days. This is definitely something I want to do in my life.”

Being NXT’s powerhouse Diva: “Of course, I mean, come on. I’m 6’1″. So much bigger than all the other Divas.

“My character was pretty much who I am. I have a strong accent and I can’t hide it. I’m much bigger than the other girls and it was who I am. I tried some different variations but it was always easy to be myself. They asked me to speak more Russian. My character is pretty much who I am. I loved it and still love it.”
