Salina De La Renta Confirms WWE Talks
De la Renta was spotted at WWE's Performance Center earlier this Summer
Earlier this Summer it was speculated that Salina de la Renta could be WWE bound, with the former MLW standout spotted training at the Performance Center. Although nothing came from this speculation, De La Renta has now confirmed she was indeed in talks with WWE.
Speaking with Fightful's Sean Ross Sapp, de la Renta said the following about her try-out with WWE:
“I was at the NXT building, alright, because I've seen so many articles about it and I'm like, ‘How did they even see me?’ I literally don't remember seeing anybody, even. I remember getting there, it was like eight in the morning and it was only Norman Smiley and a few students, so I don't even know, and how did you even see me?
“So what happened with WWE was I was talking to Canyon [Ceman] at the time, and he got fired. So the person I was talking to was gone. I mean, it looked really good. It seemed pretty good. But surprisingly, they didn't have me cut any promos. They just wanted me to wrestle.”
De la Renta continued, “I don't know. I think it has to do [with me] being recruited and I wasn't being brought in as part of a tryout. So I think that's why it was a little different. But the whole time I was there, I kept saying I kept thinking, ‘Give me a mic. Just let me talk to you. Let me just talk,’ and they just wanted to see me wrestle. After that, well, the thing with Alicia [Atout] came up, and now, for anybody to get me to not do this and just sign my life away and not do anything, is gonna be really difficult because we're at the top of the world right now.”
