Melina Perez On WWE Backstage Being Like 'High School,' Gimmick Affected Her Personal Life

Melina Perez spoke to Huffington Post on a number of pro wrestling topics. Here are some of the highlights:

Working at WWE:

"I talk to people now, and they thought I was so confident. I was doing all this awesome stuff onstage, and they didn't realize I was going through so much loneliness and hurt backstage. It was like high school."

How much her character affected her real life:

"I'm proud of that character, then and now, because it was just a character and she was great at being a b---h but when it came to my personal life, it felt like everyone around me thought that's who I was. I just felt so invisible."

Melina Perez also discussed getting back into pro wrestling and finding support from the LGBTQ community. You can read the full interview by clicking here.
