"Yeah, I love wrestling, and I have so much respect for female wrestlers," Simone said (h/t to Refinery 29). "To see them do that show and how well they portrayed it, I could see how hard all those women worked. Fingers crossed for that show for sure."
When asked if she was looking to do some acting, she replied, "I'm not sure, but something that comes to mind is wrestling."
