Nita Strauss has a new gig and it’s thanks in part to Diamond Dallas Page.
Sumerian Records (via Blabbermouth) released a new three-minute video where Nita Strauss, Alice Cooper band guitarist and noted wrestling fan, talks about how she became the in-house guitarist for the Los Angeles Rams American football team.
“The Rams introduction actually came through our good friend—and very surprising source—the pro wrestler Diamond Dallas Page. Dallas now has a yoga program, DDP Yoga, and a rehabilitation program that works with a lot of pro athletes, and one of the athletes that he worked with was a player on the L.A. Rams. So he made the introduction for us, and the next thing I knew, I got the call to play at the Salute To Service game in [November] 2018, to play ‘America The Beautiful’. I went on to play at the Sunday Night Football game, still at the Coliseum, and it went so well,” Strauss explained, “We got along so great with everyone in the organization, and after that, they contacted me about becoming a more permanent part.”
Strauss went on to say that she is thrilled to be involved with the Rams franchise, her hometown team that plays 10 miles from the hospital that she was born in.
Strauss has appeared on WWE TV multiple times, most notably performing Shinsuke Nakamura to the ring at WrestleMania 34. She also appeared with Lzzy Hale at WWE Evolution and opened the show with a performance.
