A new and improved Tenille.
Since her release from WWE in the fall of 2017 Tenille Dashwood has went on to secure herself a spot as a demanded talent by other promotions and companies. Tenille has become a regular in ROH's Women Of Honor division and at the recent ROH TV tapings she competed in a Four-Way match to determine a new #1 contender for the Women Of Honor Championship.
Although being regularly featured on ROH TV Tenille is still making the rounds elsewhere and this weekend she will be competing for the 'Rock And Roll Wrestling' promotion which is a promotion based in her home-country of Australia. Ahead of returning home Tenille spoke with the Australian news outlet the 'Illawarra Mercury' and during the discussion she spoke about what her career has been like post-WWE.
“Awesome. I’ve probably been busier than I was before. It’s been a really fun journey so far, and I feel energized and alive again for my career with wrestling,” she said. “It’s taken a long time to get there, but women’s wrestling is really having a boom right now,” Dashwood said. “It’s everything – it’s the production of the shows, it’s having opportunities for the women, and the women delivering on those opportunities. I’ve been fortunate enough to main event a number of the shows that I’ve been on since I started the independents at the beginning of this year. That’s a huge opportunity for me, and somewhere I can showcase just how much I love wrestling, and how fortunate I am to be in this position.”
Dashwood having spent six total years in the WWE recognizes that being on that stage has given her the platform to be in demand as much as she is at the moment. Nonetheless, wrestling outside of the sports-entertainment company is in a "boom" and Tenille also went on to discuss what the scene is like outside of WWE.
"Wrestling for WWE has definitely helped me a lot to get me to this platform where I’m able to do that, to be as busy as I am and travel the world,” Dashwood said. “I’m very lucky to have that, and lucky to have the fan-base I have. But wrestling is very popular again right now. The talent that’s out there, and the production that the independent companies are putting into their shows is just bringing more and more fans in worldwide. So I think as a whole we’re all putting in that effort, and bringing a better product for the fans worldwide.”
