Tenille breaks it down.
Women Of Honor division star Tenille Dashwood revealed during the latest set of ROH TV tapings that what appeared to be a momentous year for her has been one filled with many hardships. Tenille announced that she was going to be taking some time off to have surgery on her shoulder that has been bugging her for the past six months and to deal with her skin condition and an autoimmune disease.
Despite the rollercoaster of a 2017 it has been for the former WWE star, she has made the most of it and recently received her first opportunity at the Women Of Honor Championship when she challenged Sumie Sakai for the title at 'Death Before Dishonor XVI'. Prior to 'Death Before Dishonor' the focus was on 'All In' and Tenille was present at the event and she was on commentary for the Women's Four-Way match. After the match was over Tenille spoke with Alicia Atout of 'A Music Blog, Yea' and shared that her catchphrase "It's All About Me" derives from the frustrations that she had in WWE regarding not being able to go out to the ring and show what she can do.
“I think it all kinda was a transition over time being… I guess, wanting opportunities and being frustrated with not having that chance to go out and show what I can do. My time throughout NXT and WWE and then transitioning back to NXT which was the change of character when I turned on Bayley, she deserved it, and then just a whole transition over time and then obviously all the frustration built up and it’s like, ‘Come on, where the hell is my opportunity’ and that was real life." Tenille said. "I just wanna get out there and wrestle just like all the other girls like let me do it.” She continued, “I love wrestling, it’s in my blood. I’ve been wrestling since I was young - a lot of the girls told that kind of that story like Bayley and Sasha like I came from Australia and didn’t have anything behind me so, I just wanted to show my side of it, my story, my passion for wrestling.” She concluded.
