Taya on her recent title match with Jordynne Grace that main evented Impact:

“Well, my back is a little sore. I’ll say that! (laughs) I’m happy with the match except for the finish because of hos distracted two people that were ringside were. I don’t know what Bravo was doing but I’m sure it was something I’m going to yell at him about later. Obviously, it didn’t play out the way I wanted it to because I want to get the Knockouts title back. But, that gives me more motivation to keep moving forward. Jordynne is one of the toughest girls that I’ve wrestled in my career. I can’t wait to beat her up again someday! (laughs)”

On the debut of Deonna Purrazzo and the surrounding buzz:

“Honestly, I don’t really get it. So, yeah… I don’t really associate with someone that wears only one color because I think that’s boring. So, you know, yeah she’s there. That’s cool. I want to see what she can do. She hasn’t proven anything to anybody in the Knockouts division yet. She’s barely been there for a cup of coffee yet. So, lets see what she can do and then maybe I’ll have a different answer for you.”

On the Slammiversary teaser video and who from the released WWE talent she’d like in Impact:

“I’m just excited to see what happens! If I’m being completely honest, I don’t have any information on what will happen and I’m just as excited as you guys! I feel like there are so many that left that company that could come back (to Impact) and I also feel like there are a lot of people who haven’t had that opportunity that could potentially be there. We’ll just have to wait and see. Slammiversary is not that far away. So, we don’t have to wait too much longer!”

On Booker T recently saying Impact is about to become a “major threat”:

“I didn’t know that he said that so thank you very much for saying that, Booker T! I think he’s right especially with this regime and this roster that we’ve had over the past 2 to 3 years which is different than it has ever been.

We’re the craziest, hungriest wrestlers that there ever could be! I think we’re the hungriest and it shows. And even with the shows where there aren’t fans and things are a little bit different, we’re still creating this amazing product for fans every Tuesday on AXS! I’m flattered that he would say that. I feel like we’ve all known this all along and having a little validation is even more motivation!”

On a potential falling out with Rosemary:

“I mean, you said it. Over the past 2 or so years, Rosemary and I have been friends, not gotten along, wanted to kill each other, fought each other… (laughs) We’re basically a mix of keyboard emojis all in one! But, right now, I feel like we’re on the same page. So, before you see us face each other, I think we could take on the North for the Tag Team Titles.

I hope Impact brings back the Knockouts Tag Team Titles! I think we’re the perfect combination of evil and evil! (laughs) I think we would be a threat to anybody who would want to be Knockouts Tag Team Champions. So, hopefully… Dear Impact Management! We have the perfect roster, more Knockouts than ever before. So, hopefully they do bring back the Knockouts Tag Team Titles and do give us that chance.”

On starting her LOCA Fashion Brand:

“I have been a fashion student for a long time. And, I’ve been a fan of fashion for a long time as is obvious by Taya and what I wear both in and out of the ring and even myself in my regular life, I have always been in love with color and fashion – Pushing the envelope but also being comfortable in what I’m wearing which is what I’m doing here. I have always wanted to start my one line or lifestyle brand or however you want to word it. But, with everything that happened with the pandemic, it just pushed everything up a lot!

I needed something to occupy my time and mind because it was really hard at first going from traveling and performing multiple times a week to being at home. It is hard for me. I’m sure it is hard for everybody in their own individual way. This is just a way for me to find my creative voice again. I’m learning as I go as well. It is starting out small. I’ve got a second drop coming June 15th at 12 p.m. (noon) Pacific Time on www.TayaValkyrie.com. I think it represents me – It represents Taya, it represents Kira and my love of street wear and colors and being comfortable. Everything is printed here in Los Angeles and I hand dye everything. So, everything, even if it is the same variant of color, everything is different due to the dying process. So, you really are getting a one of a kind item on every single thing you buy.”

On how the Impact Wrestling roster has reacted to her LOCA brand:

“Absolutely incredible! It has truly made me speechless and I am not someone who usually is speechless! (laughs) It has been a really cool thing to see people supporting me and are excited for me doing something I don’t think anyone else has done. And, I’m excited to be doing it! I think it shows and my passion shows through the clothing and the time I’ve put into it. I was just telling Impact Wrestling’s Ross (Forman) I was setting up my office because it has taken over the whole house and needs to be contained before John (Johnny Impact) freaks out because there’s clothing everywhere! (laughs) It has been a really cool experience for me and I’m so glad John has gone through it with me as well and he’s allowed me to follow my crazy creativeness into the clothing world as well.”

pro wrestling events
The main goal of our events calendar is to get as many events as possible in one place to make it easier for fans. All events have ticket links, venue information, date and time. But some events have more, and some have a lot more and are basically event previews. It depends on the information available at the time we post the event and if we are able to update that event, etc. The other goal is keeping fans up to date on events in general, as best we can. We can’t possibly get EVERY event, but you’ll see we have more then most anyone else. Recently we’ve added Event Reminders for when certain shows will be airing. For example, if an event is taped, the reminder will be for when the event airs. We do our best to maintain around 200 upcoming pro wrestling events at all times. We started with US & Canadian professional wrestling promotions but have recently been adding more events from around the world. Including all different types of entertainment events. Some days have one to three events and some have over twenty on the same day, so you may have to click the link at the bottom to see more events on a certain day. Also we recently made it possible for anyone to comment on these event pages. If you’re a fan who went to or watched any of these events, feel free to leave a comment below. * Taya Valkyrie On IMPACT Wrestling KO Tag Titles, LOCA Brand & More DiscussPW News *
