The dynamic world of sports entertainment recently experienced a seismic shift as former Bellator MMA contender, Lola Vice, made her entry into the squared circle. With a 4-1 professional MMA record under the moniker Valerie Loureda, her decision to transition from the MMA cage to the WWE ring made headlines.
Last year, Vice was inducted into WWE's developmental platform, NXT. Teaming up with Elektra Lopez, the duo has showcased their synergy in 32 tag-team matches. However, this week's NXT episode witnessed Vice stepping up solo against the formidable former NXT Women’s Champion, Roxanne Perez.
Despite her valiant effort, Vice faced defeat. Reflecting on her journey, Vice had an intimate conversation with TMZ Sports, illuminating her journey and aspirations. A few poignant moments from the interview:
Becoming A Wrestler
"Ever since joining WWE about eighteen months ago, my life transformed.
I began my wrestling journey from the ground up, driven by my inherent passion for martial arts and entertainment. Tonight is the culmination of my dedication, as I get to demonstrate my prowess to the world." Discovering Her WWE Passion: "The spectacle of WrestleMania gave me goosebumps.
Engaging with legends like Triple H fortified my belief – WWE was my destiny. I'm aware of the countless aspiring athletes who yearn to be in my shoes. Tonight, I face a decorated champion, a journey I’ve trained for all my life." A Vision for the Future: "My ambition is crystal clear – I envision myself as the unparalleled superstar in WWE's illustrious history.
The past year has been introspective, with a deliberate retreat from the public eye. My time has been spent honing my craft, understanding the nuances, and respecting the legacy of those before me." Lola Vice's dedication, combined with her fresh approach, is certainly making waves in the WWE universe.
As fans anticipate her next move, the narrative of her journey and unwavering spirit showcases her potential to reshape the future of professional wrestling.
