The Canadian Franky Monet is excelling in the American-based NXT, after making her name in Mexico. Traveling is nothing new to her.
"My parents made it a point of exposing us to different types of peoples and cultures and having my dad being from Switzerland, I'm born and raised there, my grandparents still live there," Monet told Fightful. "It was just part of my life that we would travel around. I've never been scared of the idea of leaving to go on a new adventure or follow my heart to go somewhere to be a professional wrestler like I did. It's been instilled in me and my mom is the same way. Traveling is a huge part of my life. Not being able to do it over the last year and a half, two years, with COVID has been very sad. I miss my family dearly. I haven't been able to go to Canada in almost two years. Hopefully, we will all get back to a new normal soon."
Monet has appeared on wrestling television primarily in the USA and Mexico, but early in her career she appeared on the "World Of Hurt" reality series in Canada. She looked back at the experience when speaking with Fightful.
"The first season was with Lance Storm and I had literally been wrestling maybe three months when I did that. My debut was on television. Let's not go back and look at the tape [laughs]. It was on TV, a Canadian reality show with a school set up. Then season two, which was like six months later, was with Roddy Piper, which was incredible. It's so crazy to think about all these people that I have gotten the opportunity to learn from. That was just one more of them," Monet recalled.
