Franky Monet is on a fantastic NXT run, even though a ton of people thought she'd appear on Monday Night Raw.
Monet is undefeated in singles competition in NXT, but many expected her to join her husband John Morrison on WWE Raw. Monet told Fightful it had been brought up, but she's very happy to be working on her own, as well.
"There has been mention of it, but I've been an advocated for wanting to stand on my own two feet. I feel a lot of times, as a woman, you get associated with your husband and you almost become the wife and you're not the equal performer. I really wanted to make a point to cement myself as a performer alone and be like, 'this is Franky Monet, she is a badass and she can do this in NXT.' Eventually, maybe one day, we will be together on-screen. I would absolutely love that. Our chemistry is undeniable, we've proven over and over again that together we are a dream team. One day, I know and believe that it will happen, I'm just not sure when. For right now, my sights are set on Raquel Gonzalez and becoming a champion, for me. I want Franky Monet to be champion in 2021," Monet said.
Monet has been wrestling for over a decade, in a variety of promotions. Despite experience in AAA, Lucha Underground and IMPACT Wrestling, she admitted there are some changes in working the NXT style that seem to add up.
"There's lot of little things. Something like, there's more cameras or you have to allow for certain production things that are done differently. Being live all the time. I really wasn't live unless it was a pay-per-view or some shows in Mexico for AAA were live, but I hadn't done a lot of live television. Things like that, I had to get used to again. There are so many things here where I feel like a kid in the candy store because when you come from these different places, I don't take anything for granted, ever. This is like a dream to be here in WWE. This place, this experience, all these teachers; I just try to to in every day and learn something new every day and be as appreciative and grateful as I can for this opportunity and continue to shine and show why I am La Wera Loca and why I have had a decade-long career internationally. That's how my mindset is day in and day out. Of course things are different, but that's part of it. We evolve," Monet said.
