Tenille Dashwood Talks Turning WWE Release Into A Positive, ROH Tournament, Working The Indie Scene


Former WWE Superstar, Tenille Dashwood recently spoke with The Sporting News about her career since being released by WWE as she promoted this weekends ROH show.

Turning WWE release into a positive:

“I was definitely surprised. I really enjoyed my match with Asuka at the pay-per-view, and that was the first singles match [on pay-per-view]that I had there. So I was definitely surprised when I found out, but it gave me almost like a launching pad to go out and wrestle for all these companies elsewhere. It was almost a reminder for the fans that I can wrestle. So it really helped me moving forward and I’m glad that I can wrestle everywhere now and the demand is there.”

ROH Tournament:

“In WWE and NXT I never gained the women’s championship, so the purpose of me being with Ring of Honor is to finally validate what I’ve done. The hard work, the hectic schedule and everything is to validate all of that and become the women’s champion. Then I want to take that championship and wrestle all over the world. … I want to go to places I haven’t wrestled yet and meet new fans and continue to branch out and take that women’s revolution all around the world.”

Working the indies:

“Since I started working again in February, the shows has been booked solid as far ahead as you can book a show. Every weekend I travel across the country or overseas. Coming up there are tours in the UK, Germany, New Zealand, Australia, Japan, so it’s booked solid.
