Alicia Atout On The Possibility Of Wrestling Again After Match With Salina de la Renta

Posted By James Walsh on 10/11/21

In an interview with Wrestling Inc, Alicia Atout spoke about possibly wrestling again after having a match with Salina de la Renta in the past. Here are highlights:

On MLW revamping their womenís division: ďI think itís awesome. I know that this is something MLW has wanted for a really long time. We had kind of teased it a while back, and then the pandemic happened. It just made no sense to launch a whole new brand when, at the time, you could barely run shows in itself. I know that we had a little bit of a fall back in terms of that, and it was completely out of our hands, so the fact that we are back, itís live shows, fans are there, and now we have all of these super cool females in our locker room who Iíve had the pleasure of knowing for years working at Shimmer and RISE. Having Dave [Prazak] in the back who have known these women for so long, heís a wealth of knowledge, and I got to work with him doing those Shimmer and RISE shows and itís amazing. I always say, I donít care what you are, male, female, whatever you believe in, I donít care. If you can wrestle and youíre good, Iím gonna watch you and Iím gonna appreciate you, appreciate the hell out of you. And these females can wrestle! There was one match that just blew me away at those last tapings, and I canít wait for everyone to watch it. Iím completely all for it.Ē

On who sheíd like MLW to sign: ďSomeone who has been absolutely crushing it as of late is Lady Frost. Iíve known her for a minute, and sheís just a very good soul, and Iíd like to get to know her more. I think bringing her in would be really fun. Someone I did want them to bring in was actually Holidead, and they did. That was amazing. That was a check off the list. Iíve known her for forever. Thereís so many names I could throw around, itís wild. Ray Lyn, I think, would be such a fun addition. She is just a little spark of energy and I would love to see her. Lyn would be really cool to see in there. I could go on and on. Thereís just so much talent out there that deserves a spotlight, and now we have this new platform to give that. I know Iím just looking forward to the announcements. Iíve been texting Court [Bauer], ĎHey, whatís new?í Iím excited.Ē

On if sheíd wrestle again: ďI think it was you I told in an interview, I will never wrestle. Iíve said it multiple times. It got to the point where Salina de la Renta and I had caused such a crazy fuss online, and we thought, what do we bring this to you? How do we settle our differences? So we decided to have a pay-per-view on our page, which did incredibly well, and a lot of people thought when we announced this, oh, thereís gonna be no moves. Itís gonna be just cheap gear, if gear at all, bra and panties, blah blah blah. No, no, no, we did entrances. I had gear done for it. We went all out. She taught me moves. I was bruised all over. I still canít sit properly because I bruised my tailbone. Itís been a week and a half. It was serious. I wrestled, but at the same time, as much fun as it was, I am not cut out for this at all. Iím a baby. I bruise like a peach. I hurt for way too long. I have this skin disease where if youíre scratching your bruise, it gets really, really big, and it just wonít go away for weeks and weeks. It just doesnít make sense for me. It was fun. We might do it in the future as a monthly thing, just her and I, but by no means am I taking wrestling bookings or anything, so I would not call myself a wrestler. However, I have wrestled. I would love to be a manager. Iíll slap some people around for sure. Some people deserve it, but in terms of wrestling them, probably not. Iím gonna call the doctor in a couple of days if my tailbone doesnít heal up because I literally canít sit properly. It is horrible, and every time you sneeze or cough, it sucks.Ē
