Session Moth Martina recently spoke with Andrew Thompson of POST Wrestling where she revealed why she didn’t sign with WWE NXT UK.
She did have a tryout with the company but made the decision not to sign with the company, as she didn’t want to give up on travelling.
“The NXT UK tryout was really fun. It was the first-ever all-female tryout. So yeah, that was great, and I really enjoyed the experience, I felt like it went really well. Yeah, it was quite great getting to train [at]the U.K. P.C. and I got asked to stay on and do an extra week of training just to see the current signees and stuff, and a lot of my friends work there so I felt very comfortable straight away. I just felt like, at that time I guess, it just wasn’t the right direction for me. I mean, it would’ve been a great opportunity to start something new, but I felt like just for me right now, [I] just didn’t really want to give up the amount of travel that I get to do at the moment and I have a lot of freedom as it is right now. I’ve been to Australia this year, America, Japan. I’m just not really ready to [give that up]. I’ve put a lot into my character over the last five years and I just felt like Ring of Honor was a better fit for my character and what I wanted to do with my character, and I just felt like it was gonna be a bit safer here. It just felt like a better fit.”
Session Moth Martina also spoke about WWE Raw Women’s Champion, Becky Lynch reaching out to her, admitting how proud she is of what The Man is doing.
“It was amazing. I remember years ago, a few years ago, she reached out and she was like, ‘It’s great what you’re doing. Is there anyway I can help you maybe get looked at by WWE?’ And I was like, the fact that she doesn’t need to go out of her way to do that for me and she just really liked everything that I was doing which was so sweet, and even having her now say, ‘Oh, I think she’s doing great’ and she’s genuinely the biggest thing in wrestling right now which is amazing that this girl from Ballyfermot, or like Dublin City Centre is like the top star in Ireland or in the world, it’s amazing. So yeah, she’s so sweet and anytime I see her, I just get goosebumps. I’m so proud of what she’s doing. It’s amazing.”
