Katie Arquette is the latest wrestler to appear on two different wrestling promotions’ programming on the same night. On Monday, August 29, Katie wrestled and was defeated by Serena Deeb on AEW Dark: Elevation. Then, on Raw, Katie tagged with Dani Mo, and Kayla Sparks in a losing effort to Bianca Belair, Alexa Bliss, and Asuka.
Now, Katie is speaking with PWMania about her experience, proclaiming her Monday Night Raw match to be a surreal experience.
“It was surreal. The chance I got to even have a match live on RAW, then finding out who the opponents were, it was very surreal. I was blessed to get the opportunity. It felt good going in with both of them (Kayla Sparks and Dani Mo) to this match. Two people I’m familiar with and comfortable with.“When we found out we were going up against Alexa Bliss, Asuka, and the RAW Women’s Champion Bianca Belair, it was an incredible moment. It was a challenge, for sure. These were three women’s wrestlers who I’ve watched for quite some time now and three women’s wrestlers who I’d love to face one-on-one. The fact that I got a little bit of each of them was incredible. I hope to one day get another opportunity there, and who knows, maybe it will be me going after that RAW Women’s Championship.”
In regards to appearing on two shows on the same night, Katie says that opportunities such as that are all she could ask for as a wrestler.
“I couldn’t believe I got another chance to showcase myself with AEW, AND the fact that WWE wanted to see what I could do and put me in a position to prove myself, it was just a surreal moment. People may not have known my name, but they may know my name now. That’s all I can ask for, just seeing where I could go, and any opportunity I can take advantage of.”
