Roxanne Perez Recalls Being Signed By WWE

Roxanne Perez

Before coming to WWE, Roxanne Perez was known on the American independent scene as “Rok-C”. She spent four years training and gradually working her way up across the indies, until eventually she was contacted by people with influence in WWE.

According to her, these people were so impressed with her talents that they wanted her to sign with the world’s biggest wrestling company as soon as possible.

The entire experience was overwhelming for Perez, who described the process of getting hired by WWE in an interview with Fightful.

“As a kid, my dream was going to WWE and I was like, ‘I don’t know how I’m gonna get there, but I’m gonna do it.’ Then I find out about the indies and I found out how you can just work your way up throughout the indies and one day maybe they’ll call me.

That’s what I wanted to do. I wanted to make a big enough name for myself to where I don’t have to beg. They will contact me and be like, ‘Hey, we want you because your work spoke for yourself.’

When I got there, it was crazy to do my tryout and people were like, ‘Yeah, we know you.’ I would never have expected to come into a WWE tryout and people be like, ‘Yeah, you’re good.’”

Roxanne Perez did everything she could and memorized as many lessons as possible so that she could make it to WWE

Perez knew that getting into the world’s biggest wrestling company was incredibly difficult, which is why she took advice from many different people, from Booker T to her boyfriend Gino Medina. Ultimately, these lessons also helped her become a successful candidate to be signed.

“I definitely did my homework, especially training at Booker T’s school. He prepared me. My boyfriend, Gino Medina, he’s awesome and he prepared me for that tryout. I was ready.

He had me doing some crazy cardio. He’s done a tryout before, so he’s like, ‘Yeah, this is what they do,’ and it was way less than what he had me do. But I was over prepared. So that was good.”
