Former WWE wrestler Rosa Mendes recently spoke with former WWE creative team member Kevin Eck. The following are the highlights of the interview, which can be read in full at Pressboxonline.com.
-On helping Paige by putting her in touch with a therapist: Paige and I are soul sisters. She has a heart of gold. When friends go through hard times, it’s important to be there for them, but it’s also important to step away when they need space. If your friendship is strong enough to withstand obstacles, then I feel that those obstacles will bring you closer together. I’m so happy that her and I reconnected. When I was going through my own problems, [Natalya] was there for me, and I don’t know what I would have done without her at that time in my life. She’s been a true friend for so many years. That’s what being a true friend is all about — being there when someone needs you, not when their friendship can benefit you.
On life after WWE and whether motherhood has changed her perspective on life: Absolutely. I had this discussion with Brie [Bella]. To be a WWE superstar, you’re a Type A personality, which means you turn into a Type A mom, housewife, homemaker, business woman. I want Jordan to always be comfortable, to always be happy, to always have everything she needs. At first, I put so much pressure on myself, because your baby isn’t always going to be happy and comfortable, and you have to learn to emotionally accept that and do the best you can. Brie is an amazing mom, and I know that Maryse is going to be a supermom, too. It’s embedded in us.
Powell’s POV: Mendes also discussed whether she continues to watch WWE and who she keeps in touch with from the company and a variety of other topics. Rosa will be appearing for MCW tonight Joppa, Maryland. The event also features appearances by Four Horsemen members Ric Flair, Barry Windham, Arn Anders, Tully Blanchard, and JJ Dillon.
