Summer Rae On Moment She Would Like To Have In WWE Royal Rumble

In the appearance of the day Sessions with Renee BeckettEx-WWE star Summer Rae detailed how she was booked for her 2022 WWE Women’s Royal Rumble match. The match will take place at the Royal Rumble event on January 29, and Summer’s participation comes as a shock considering there has been no sign of her returning since she left WWE in 2017.

“The funny thing is there was no gurgling at all,” Summer Ray said. “October was when I left, so it was like October 2017. But then I hadn’t had wrestling the year before that, so it was over four years ago but five and a half years since the match. Until my last match, I didn’t even know. You know How fans tweet you. I think fans told me that my last match with Foxy was in a random city in July and I kind of talked and I went to a doctor and I went to another doctor, I didn’t really know. So that’s going to be cool when I go to Rumble again. , because I’d be like, ‘Oh, I never had one last match. And I can be present in that moment and be aware of what happened.

“But yeah, nobody called me or texted me or nothing. I remember at the beginning of the pandemic, when I was living in New York, I was like, ‘Connecticut is kind of close. I wonder if I can work at HQ. Then the epidemic struck. Carano and Tom always send me a happy birthday. I never burned the bridge, but I also don’t have access to Vince or anything.”

Summer Rae revealed that she was first contacted about Rumble after she went to Impact Wrestling taping to see her friend Tenille Dashwood, sparking rumors that she might be joining Impact. Conversations started from there between her and longtime WWE employee John Kwon.

“I went to the Tenille (Dashwood) show on Impact because I was just in Vegas,” Summer Rae said. And of course, the dirt sheets picked that up and she was like, ‘Oh she’s going over there. ‘ And I said ‘No, it’s just a coincidence.’ I happen to go to her show. I think I could have sat in the back, but I wanted to see her. So I literally pack my bags in Abu Dhabi, it’s like nine in the evening and I see John Coon’s name appear on the My phone… and I’m like, “What?”

I picked up the phone and said ‘What do you want?’ What is that? Four and a half years have passed. He says ‘Okay, I’m making a list of potential girls. You want to get your attention. I honestly didn’t get my hopes up.’ I said, ‘Okay, that’s fun and cool. Of course.’ There was just, is it the rumble of three women? So that’s amazing. Growing up, Rumble to me was like my favorite PPV. That’s always been or Money in the Bank really cool. And of course mania loves everyone. But all my friends love Royal Rumble. It’s fun, it’s exciting.

So I was like ‘That’s crazy.’ Then I literally traveled to the Middle East. They were like ‘You’re probably not going to find out for New Year.’ And I said ‘Okay, great.’ So I got it, picked it up, and let it go. Then he called me I guess after Five days and he was like, “Okay happy birthday, because we actually have an answer for you and it’s yes.” I was with Tenille and I was like, “Really?” and he was like, “Yes.” And in my head I was thinking, “Oh my God, okay. What is my equipment? What moves do I do? What is my entry form? And I said ‘Wait, when is this? Who am I to say? Not to say? So it’s all in your head.

And Tennell was so happy for me. She was like, “Oh my God!” I was but I was on it. So I was like, “Do they know I have red hair?” And he was like, “Yeah. Johnny loves it. Vince thinks he’s cool. I was like, “Okay.” I didn’t even ask who else was, I was just like “Okay great”. Then I hung up the phone and Tennell was like “That’s cool. Kick spin, kick spin, cover. I loved her answering her for me for that. She’s just a really good friend.”

The only thing that disappointed Summer Rae was WWE announcing her Rumble appearance after they thought it would still be a surprise. In the end, she is taking advantage of the situation and is excited about the match.

“They called me last Friday and said ‘So Vince wants to announce two people tonight for the man’s match and the girls’ match. He is thinking of advertising for you. Samar said just alert because your social sites will increase. ‘I was like ‘Wait, really?’ And then I was like, ‘Oh my God, I haven’t told any of my best friends. I would look like such a bad person. I didn’t tell anyone, I didn’t really want to spoil the surprise. So when it happened, I was kind of like I was a little bit back, like “What a bad smell. It’s supposed to be a surprise. But then in my head I was like “Oh cool, I’m going to use this to market crap out of me and what I’m doing.”

“So every time I’m in the gym it’s way to Rumble and now I can kindle beef up again with Nattie and Pamela/Baley. I talked to a bunch of girls and they were all like ‘It’s a crazy match to get together’ . Everything changes until the moment you leave. And I’m just like ‘How is this possible? Imagine someone’s going up for a superplex and you forget there’s someone on the other side of the road and they quickly get upset?’ It’s just so interesting. But I definitely have no ego. I feel like it’s very easy to handle With him. I think the producers would probably spend time with boys and girls who match those, because of all the characters and vanities and getting your involvement. For me, I’d like to have a little bit of a full divas moment, because there are a lot of us total divas out there. Maybe a spot with my Natty or Something like that, then waved to my friends. I have a lot of people coming in.”
