Rochelle Rouge on 2023..
“2023 is going to be such an exciting year, I’ve got a whole heap of things in the works. I’ve got a pretty big storyline at DMDU in the works and I’m so keen to see how it grows and how it comes to fruition. I’ve got FWA, I love FWA with my whole heart, it is my home regardless of where I’m based or where I am. I’ve got some really big things coming up at the end of the year as well, a possible America trip in November-December, so that’s nerve-racking and exciting at the same time.”
On regional promotion MXW..
“MXW is like a all rounder type thing, it’s more family friendly, its very inclusive to the point of having a row for people with wheelchairs that have mobility issues and stuff like that. They can have easy access and be able to have their own area where they’re not needing to move chairs. You don’t see that at wrestling shows.
MXW is a place where people can grow as well. There are a lot of guys who are really green, they’re still learning and getting a chance to showcase what they’ve got. There is soo much untouched talent with-in MXW. I’m so excited to see what else they can bring.”
Rouge expanded on her plans to travel to the US at the end of the year..
“At the moment I’m going to be based in California. If I ever get the chance I want to go to the east coast, I’d love to go over and wrestle on the east coast. This is my first time out of Australia, you know and I want to go be a nerd and go to Disneyland.
I’ve reached out to a few companies, I’ve had one reach out to me at the moment. So who knows where I’ll be heading up. It’s just a matter of time but I’m excited to see how it goes but at the moment I’ll just be in California.”
