Kobra Moon: I'll Always Be Grateful To Lucha Underground

Thunder Rosa/Kobra Moon was recently interviewed by IWR of Wrestling Epicenter. You can see the full interview at this link, and highlights below: 

Inter-gender wrestling and if it can be accepted by the mainstream fans: 
"I mean, they're introducing it little by little. Their argument will always be that a man will always beat a woman's butt no matter what. But, for the sake of entertaining, once it is in their face, people can believe it. Especially if they do a good job booking the matches. Like, if they do a match where the girl is small and the guy is really, really big - You're not going to make that believable. Whoever is making the story has to make it believable. Then, in that aspect, it will be accepted. But, even in movies, like, I just watched Captain Marvel. People were complaining... I think it is because she was a woman and she was small. People are always going to complain! Even with women's matches, people still say they're not as good as the male matches. It is still the same. I'm going to say to give it 2 more years and then we'll see. The more they introduce it, the more people are going to get used to it. Not everyone is going to accept it. But, they're going to get used to it and it is going to be normal." 

On her overall thoughts coming away from Lucha Underground: 
"I will always be grateful to Lucha Underground for my TV time and my experience. Lucha Underground will always be my home. I am pretty much a home grown talent. They are the ones who gave me the opportunity no one else did. You will not hear me bash them. At the end of the day, I was the one who signed the contract. I chose to do that. I have nothing bad to say about Lucha Underground because they have always supported me when I've asked for support. The only thing I can say as the days, weeks, and months pass is that we're not able to work with Lucha Underground and with our characters the way we thought we would. But, you know, it is just part of the business." 

On the decision to bring Kobra Moon and not Thunder Rosa to AXS TV's WOW Women of Wrestling: 
"No. They said, "Hey, you're playing Kobra Moon in the WOW Women of Wrestling." I said, "All Right!" (laughs) Literally, that is what I said. Give me my gear, give me my stuff, and I'll play it! In a way, I was like "eh" because I really wanted to play something that was a WOW character, you know? It is what it is."
