Trish Adora is the current Pan-African World Diaspora Champion and she recently spoke about working with Maria Kanellis, on Wrestling Inc. Daily. Maria is a former WWE performer that started her career as a backstage interviewer.
Maria quickly became popular in the professional wrestling industry as she was very charming. She became a well-known wrestler as well, especially after her run at Impact Wrestling. Trish revealed that she likes working with Maria who is currently working in the ROH management and heading the women’s division there.
Trish Adora Explains Why She Likes Working with Maria Kanellis at ROH
“Maria is extremely ambitious, which is very nice because to be surrounded by other ambitious people who are willing to hear your ideas, who are willing to bounce things back off you, that are willing to bridge the gap between the independents and TV wrestling, that’s heavy on my shoulders,” Adora expressed.
“I’ve kind of taken on that myself, but to be involved with a company that sees that too and that doesn’t scare them. They’re not upset by that. That’s really nice”. Adora has worked for various indie promotions.
She spoke about what she meant by bridging the gap between indies and TV Wrestling. “What I mean is that I think people see it as two separate things,” Adora noted. “They see independent wrestling as a little bubble, and they see TV wrestling as this huge thing.
And I really see them on relatively equal footing. I like to be able to bounce between the two, and I’m hoping that that example can inspire some change within TV wrestling, that, I don’t want to say the pipeline, but, for lack of a better word”.
Adora appeared at WWE NXT and lost to Kairi Sane on TV. She also worked for Ring of Honor in the past. She then spoke about how it is like working in a TV wrestling environment. “There are some learning curves and some teaching points that I’ve been getting over the past few months, but the adjustments have been a little bit easier to make because now a lot of the independents, at least the ones that I’ve been featured on, they have streaming services too,” Trish Adora pointed out.
“They allow that whole ‘work the camera’, so you’re never really go too far away from having to work the camera. There’s certain timing cues that you have to consider as well. It’s definitely a different playing field, but I’ve jumped in on the run”.
