Franky Monet thrives under pressure.
Monet (fka Taya Valkyrie) was a guest on WWE’s The Bump on Wednesday and talked about her arrival in NXT and the road she took to get there. It was pointed out that Monet wasted no time in introducing herself to the NXT roster when she confronted Women’s Champion Raquel Gonzalez, but she says she’s putting the whole locker room on notice.
“I’m not trying to skip the line, I’m just letting it be known that ‘La Wera Loca’ Franky Monet isn’t just here to sit in the back and wait. I have proven time and time again why I’m the best,” she explained, “and I’m going to do it again at NXT. Guess what—if you’re the Women’s Champion, if you’re the former Women’s Champion, if you’re anybody in that locker room—you have a target on your back.”
“I haven’t faced anybody there. This is going to be the first time you see a lot of matches and I’m bringing everything I’ve got, I’m bringing me experience, all my different styles,” Monet said, “everything that I’ve learned from every teacher and all across the world, into that ring. I cannot wait to see what I’m going to do.”
Monet also went on to address her career before WWE, explaining that she’s been around the world and overcame adversity, so this is just one more time she has to do that and she’s ready for the challenge.
“I thrive under pressure, I’ve also been told ‘no’ a million and one times, so this is another situation where I have to prove myself once more and I’m not scared to do that. I know my worth, my ability, my talent and what I bring to the table,” she said, “with a different story than anybody else has in the world of professional wrestling. I took a different path and it brought me here. I’m prepared to—diamonds are made out of pressure, so don’t worry about it.”
