Ruby Riot On Making It To WWE
In a recent interview, NXT star Ruby Riot talked about how her unique look helped her get signed by WWE.
“I would like to think so. There isn’t another female superstar on the roster who looks anything like me, that moves like me, and I think that definitely helps me in the long run. I would like to think that will help me with the NXT Universe as well, because of something new and fresh and exciting and not in the mold of the norm of what they’ve seen prior to this.”
She also explained the meaning behind her name.
“The name Ruby Riot was very much inspired by my punk rock background. There is a song by Rancid that is inspired by a Ruby name. Riot, obviously, when you think of punk rockers, mosh pits, riots, everything like that.”
Jim Ross On His Favorite Recent Matches
Jim Ross, whose autobiography Slobberknocker: My Life In Wrestling was released last week, has been doing the media rounds to promote the book’s release. In a recent interview, he was asked about his favorite matches that he’s seen recently.
“There’s so many things that go into matches that make me like them. Obviously, calling Undertaker and Roman Reigns on a grand stage like WrestleMania— there’s nothing even close to that. But I’ve also called three of the [Kazuchika] Okada-[Kenny] Omega matches. I called Omega in Long Beach when he won the U.S. title for New Japan. The live stuff will always trump going into a studio to do voice-overs.”
