MLW star Salina De La Renta recently did an interview with Denise Salcedo. During the interview De La Renta credited Total Divas for her wrestling career.
“I decided I wanted to pursue pro wrestling because I felt it fit the most with my personality. I am very much into performing arts and anything that has to do with sports. When I was in school I remember trying out for soccer, volleyball, anything. I wasn’t good, but I tried out…then I did singing, dancing, modeling, acting. I was trying to do it all until I found what I wanted to do for real. I moved to Florida to study film and I was going to college for screenwriting and taking all my classes and I came across the reality TV show, Total Divas, and I was like “oh wow, wow, this is a different world.” I knew about wrestling by word of mouth and I had seen some stuff. It wasn’t like I was completely clueless, but I didn’t know that much. And I got into the show and decided that I kinda looked like the Divas…’I don’t understand, I feel like I fit in.’ And it was a new world for me but I wanted to try it out. I started researching wrestling schools near me and I decided to try it out. I took a bump and I decided ‘this is it, I am going to be doing this.’”
