Tegan Nox spoke with Sports Illustrated ahead of her Steel Cage Match with Dakota Kai on tonight’s episode of WWE NXT.
Nox spoke about a wide range of topics. Here are the highlights:
Who are the three most talented women in wrestling?
“Candice LeRae is the best female wrestler in the world, if not a top three best wrestler in the world, male or female. And Io Shirai and Bayley. Seeing Bayley change is so cool. It’s hard to pick three. You’ve got Meiko Satomura, who has been doing this for so long and it’s just an honor to work with her. But I would, 100 percent, put Candice LeRae on top.”
This Wednesday’s cage match is an opportunity to showcase your ability and help define the direction of your career. What do you want to prove to those watching?
“I want to prove to everyone watching and those who have ever doubted me that you can overcome any obstacle. People doubted me because of my knee injuries, but now I’ve had my first TakeOver and now I’m in a steel cage on NXT TV live on the USA Network. That’s something not many people can say they’ve done, especially coming from Wales in a hometown that is so small. Dakota [who is from New Zealand] and me, we’re the first two very female athletes from our respective countries against one another in a cage match, and that means a lot to us.”
