Raquel Gonzalez recently gave an interview to The Wrestling Inc. Daily talking about the War Games tonight, where she will be captain of the team formed, as well as her, by Io Shirai, Cora Jade and Kay Lee Ray, who will challenge Toxic Attraction with Dakota Kai.
"I feel like I'm 100% the safest person I've ever seen in a War Games match, even if it's my second time in the match. Because last year was my War Games rookie match and I'm going under the wing and guidance of Candice LeRae, Dakota Kai, and Toni Storm.
(These are) women full of experience, full of knowledge. Especially with matches involving weapons and cages and all that. Last year I was a bit nervous, a bit like the underdogs. But to come out victorious and win for my team was great.
This year I feel like I'm on the other side, I feel like I'm a bit of a leader this time, but not a solo leader."
Backstage news on Raquel Gonzalez
When it comes to the changes that have been made to the Triple H product, Raquel Gonzalez is quite positive: "It's exciting.
The change is good, it's good to have fresh meat in the ring. I feel like old school and new school. they mixed and clashed in the double rings with the cage and the whole thing is something people won't expect. They won't know what to expect from all these newcomers who have never been put in this position.
As well as the old school kids. They will have to really step up their game to teach them a lesson and remind those 2.0 guys what exactly NXT is. It's exciting, I can't wait to watch it." Then he concluded by saying, "I love that the female side is a little more mixed.
We have Mandy and Dakota who are a little more old school, with Gigi and JC being part of the new school. Then of course you have me, KLR. , and I who are old school and new school, Cora, who is all new school. It's a good mix, I can't wait."
Later on in the interview, Raquel González said that she was prepared for there to be no NXT WarGames this year. She considered that due to NXT undergoing so many changes, WarGames may not fit into the new brand. "I was curious if we would have WarGames, especially the women having an actual match.
When we got the news and got into who our teams were going to be, I got very excited because this is the kind of atmosphere I thrive on and I feel like Raquel Gonzalez shows her brutality, domination, and why she is the alpha the women's division (...) There is no one who can stop me, stand next to me, and look me eye to eye."
