Speaking with Denise Salcedo of Instinct Culture, Roxanne Perez was asked to discuss the buzz surrounding her match against Jordynne Grace.

“It’s been really cool,” Roxanne Perez said. “It’s been really cool, not just for women’s wrestling but just wrestling in general. Obviously, yes, for women’s wrestling because you would have never thought that this would happen just a few years ago.

“So now that I get to be a part of it and am able to be a part of history-making stuff and to be able to finally step in the ring with Jordynne Grace, honestly, she’s amazing. She’s impressive, she a freak athlete. So I’m excited to get in the ring with her and prove to her why they call me The Prodigy.”
