Taya Valkyrie discusses getting into producing in the world of wrestling.
In recent years, many active wrestlers have made an effort to be more involved in the backstage part of wrestling. One of the biggest examples of this is All Elite Wrestling, which had four active competitors as Executive Vice Presidents at one point in time.
In a new interview with Fightful, Valkyrie talked about wanting to become a producer in wrestling, while also noting that she thinks she has the experience to potentially join a creative team one day.
"I’ve said this also before, I have a huge interest in learning about that because I haven’t really had the opportunity to sit and learn what’s going on in the headsets and the monitors and what’s going on in the truck. So that’s definitely something that I want to do. Especially, I’m super into writing and creating characters and working on character work and aesthetics and all that kind of stuff. So I would also love to be a part of a creative team at some point because I think that I have the experience, I think that I have the passion. I’ve been through a lot of really weird shit which makes for a good story. I think I do have interest in doing that in the future and you never know. This is an industry that’s growing and evolving every single day. If you are not learning, you’re being left behind. So I just want to keep doing that and keep learning from my friends, from my peers, from people who have been doing this less time. You learn form everybody and everybody affects you in a certain way. So it’s very important to me that people continue to do that and grow."
