For Tay Melo, wrestling in Japan would be a dream come true.
The Jericho Appreciation Society member and All Elite Wrestling performer recently spoke with Dark Puroresu Flowsion for an interview, during which she spoke about her dream of competing in “The Land of the Rising Sun.”
Featured below are some of the highlights.
On how she hopes to wrestle as many Joshi wrestlers as possible: “Honestly, I want to wrestle them all. I love Japanese style. It’s part of my roots because of judo. I always loved the culture, the language, the respect they have for each other, and the hard work. It’s no surprise that I want to wrestle Giulia more than anyone else. I can’t wait to share a ring with her one day.”
On how going to compete in Japan would be a dream come true: “Going to Japan has been a dream for a long time, even before wrestling. I know that I’ll learn a lot and it can change my career for the better. I remember training with Meiko Satomura for a little bit in NXT. I asked her to help me with my kicks and the way she teaches, the way she moves is everything, I just loved it. I had the pleasure to work with Kairi, Io Shirai, and Shida, and man I always learned a lot from them and had so much fun. It’s truly the style I love and feel comfortable [with]. I’m super open to going to Japan, I really want to go. I’m waiting for the opportunity.”
