Taya Feared Broken Orbital Bone On Moonsault Slip Up

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.

Enjoying being a heel: 
"Most of my career, I've been a heel. The Taya you are seeing now is just a developped version of my years in AAA and Lucha Underground. She's just a version of that. Being a baby face was fun because it challenged me to do things that I really hadn't done in years or wrestle in a certain way. But, it has been very fun revisiting this version of Taya and trying to push the envelope and show how awful I can truly be. (laughs) Come on! Who doesn't love a good villain? Expect more awfulness coming your way!" 

On recently suffering head trauma when a moonsault went wrong: 
"I'm fine. I went to the hospital just because of pressure on the eye itself. I was worried that I could have fractured my orbital bone. I didn't know what it could have been. I had an MRI and everything is fine. I just had severe swelling for like 5 days. By the time I got to WrestleCon (United We Stand), the swelling had gone down. Obviously, you can cover bruising with make-up! The glorious part of being a woman is you can put make-up on and you can hide everything! Obviously, everything is fine now. I'm in the ring every day. But, I haven't moonsaulted yet. (laughs) Everyone has accidents. Everyone has things go wrong. I've moonsaulted like 7 zillion times. That is the most frustrating thing about it - Sometimes you just don't even know why. But, with that said, I'm going to be hitting the gymnastics center when we're back from this loop and doing stuff in the ring to try and get this (the moonsault) dialed in. I'm sure it was just a fluke accident. I still don't know what it was. But, I'll get back on the horse. My husband keeps asking me, "So, when are we going to go and backflip into the foam pit?" (laughs) I'm like, "All right, lets go!" It will happen, no worries!"
