Taya Discusses In-Ring Chemistry With Tessa Blanchard And Jordynne Grace

Impact Wrestling's Taya was interviewed by Interactive Wrestling Radio on Wrestling Epicenter. You can check out the full interview at this link, and highlights below.

Taya Valkyrie on handing Jordynne Grace her first loss in Impact at Rebellion: 
"I'm just proud of my performance. I mean, I'm proud of the whole show start to finish. But, I felt that I really tried to bring different aspects of my wrestling game. (laughs) I'm sure Jordynne was studying me so I really wanted to surprise her with some different things and really bring something special. I feel like we did that." 

On wrestling in front of her home country's fans in Canada again: 
"It's been very interesting. (laughs) I really wish we would wrestle on the West Coast because it was my first time in Toronto since I was a child on a choir trip. People don't realize how large Canada is. It is very expensive to travel from the west to the east. It was my first time in Toronto since I was literally 11. It was cool to get back there and really get a feel for the city which I had never really done before. It was cool!" 

On her critically acclaimed Street Fight with Tessa Blanchard on Impact in February: 
"I think we really pushed each other. I've had experience in street fights and things like that before in AAA. I was very prepared and I think I really pushed her to her limits. She did as well. I do think that was one of my best matches of the year so far. I hope everyone takes a look at it. I feel that every time I'm in the ring taping Impact or at any indy show, I'm always pushing myself to be better. I don't want to say it is a Match of the Year (candidate) because it is only May. There is so much left to do! But, I definitely recommend people check it out. The Lucha Libre fans are hard to impress and I feel like we left them extremely impressed! (laughs) It was a great time for me. I'm looking forward to seeing what else we can do this year."
