Despite having only been wrestling for two years, Alex Gracia has taken AEW Dark by storm – with ‘The Pink Dream’ brightening up the screen whenever she’s in the ring. Despite having already shared the ring with the likes of Kylie Rae, Su Yung, Jordynne Grace, Raquel Gonzalez, Scarlett Bordeaux and the late Hana Kimura, Gracia opened up to Inside The Ropes’ Lead Writer Gary Cassidy about just how much she’s learned from former NWA Women’s Champion – and another woman we’re seeing a lot of in AEW of recent – Thunder Rosa!
Gracia named Rosa as someone who has taught her a lot in terms of wrestling, but also in terms of life lessons.
Despite only wrestling for a couple of years, you’ve been in the ring with a lot of big names! You’ve wrestled the likes of Thunder Rosa, Kylie Rae, Su Yung, Jordynne Grace, Raquel Gonzalez, Scarlett Bordeaux and the late Hana Kimura. My favourite thing I hear from a lot of wrestlers is, “You never stop learning.” Who did you learn the most from working with, and what was the lesson you learned?
“Ahh! That is such a hard question to answer because I learn something from these amazing people every time – but since I work with her inside and outside of the ring, I would have to say Thunder Rosa. I not only learn wrestling from her, but also a lot of life lessons. She’s always told me that if I work my butt off and work for every opportunity then I am untouchable.”
Gracia also spoke of how Rey Mysterio inspired her, how her dream opponent is Shida for the AEW Women’s Championship, and of her WWE tryout and her recent experiences in AEW.
