Taya Valkyrie Talks About Her Recent AEW Debut
Taya Valkyrie went by the name of Frankie Monet in her previous run in the NXT. She worked in the promotions like Lucha Underground, AAA and Impact wrestling. She is one of the longest reigning TNA knockouts champion too.
Fans who know about her are extremely glad to see are in the biggest promotion in the world right now. Finally, she has made a mark. And by the way WWE made her promo packages and the way she got booked in her first match, it looked like WWE is planning a main event push for her.
But Taya got released from WWE before her career could start properly. As WWE was reshaping NXT and stopped pushing and bringing stars from the indies, Taya had to be sacrificed as well. Currently she is active in various wrestling promotions including Impact Wrestling and MLW.
Taya Valkyrie who went by the name of Franky Monet in the NXT and a former Impact Knockouts Champion recently spoke to the Attitude Era podcast where she talked about her recent AEW debut and discussed how it all came together. He said;
“I never went back and forth. I left [WWE] after I retired. I wanted to be more on the executive side, they wouldn’t hire me on the executive side. I didn’t have enough experience, the technical education, and going to AEW proved that I knew what I was doing.
“I was helping other people at WWE with their jobs. People were like, ‘Hey, man, can you help me with this?’ I was always helping. When it came to scouting, I could see something and go, ‘That’s not right. Fix that, fix that,’ and then it was good.”
