Raquel Rodriguez Interview on 99.5 WKDQ

As a massive fan of all things WWE, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to talk to one of WWE's brightest up-and-coming talents, Raquel Rodriguez. She's made quite the impact on SmackDown, since being called up from NXT last year. This woman is a future Women's Champion (we spoke it into existence)!


Earlier today, Raquel and I talked about her first match with WWE in the Mae Young Classic, her run in NXT, the Royal Rumble, Elimination Chamber, and who she would love to step in the ring with at WrestleMania. We even had some fun talking about how her dad (who was also a wrestler) missed her birth because he had a match. It's a fun interview that I think you'll enjoy. Check it out below:

I belelive that these are some of the best matches of all time. No gimmicks, just a good old fashioned match that told a great story and left the crowd in awe of what they just witnessed.
