WWE Superstar Roxanne Perez recently opened up about what it would feel like to win the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championship alongside Cora Jade.
Last night on NXT, Perez and Jade took on Kayden Carter and Katana Chance. Despite an early setback, the young duo came away with the win. The team is now set to take on Toxic Attraction’s Jacy Jayne and Gigi Dolin for gold next week at The Great American Bash.
Talk to WWE in an exclusive interviewPerez said she and Jade, as champions, would ring a bell.
“Honestly, I think I could speak for Cora when I say this, but that would be amazing. Me and Cora have been dreaming and working for this for years. So at Great American Bash. We’re taking these titles from Toxic Attraction. Cora Jade and Roxanne Perez, the NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions, sound really good.” (From 0:43 to 1:09)
Perez has only been with WWE since March of this year. However, she has already won the NXT Women’s Breakout tournament, which guarantees a title shot in the future.
Former WWE Star Talks Roxanne Perez’s Potential
At only 20 years old, the young star has already carved out a great career by becoming the very first female world champion of the Ring of Honor.
“I hesitate to say this because I don’t like anyone comparing anyone to anyone else, but the ability you have in Becky Lynch, you have in Roxanne. I think that it will only grow… Roxanne will be on the same level as Becky.”
“She’s got the technique. She’s got the history, she’s got the heart. She used to ride the bus to wrestling practice before she could drive a car or something. She took the bus to be able to go to training.” (H/T – Wrestling Inc)
With such high praise from her peers, fans will no doubt expect to see the best of Roxanne Perez every week.
