During Saturday’s Impact Wrestling’s media scrum for Hard to Kill, Wrestling Inc. Managing Editor Nick Hausman asked Impact Wrestling Knockout Champion Taya Valkyrie what are some of the inter-promotional matches she would like to have and the odds they would happen in 2020. When it comes to AEW, Taya named their reigning World Champion, Riho, noting that she would “break her in half.”
“The list is endless,” Valkyrie revealed. “Women wrestlers right now are just growing immensely and I feel like women are becoming more confident to push themselves technically, their character, and everything. I think more than ever we’re seeing complete packages all across the board. I think that if I was to say pick one person from AEW, I mean I’m gonna go for the champ because I could break her in half. Riho wherever you are.”
Taya also named several stars in WWE, including Charlotte Flair, Mia Yim, Candice LeRae and Chelsea Green.
“As far as WWE, there are a few dream matches there,” Valkyrie stated. “Obviously, for me, I look at someone like Charlotte Flair. I look at lots of the girls in NXT. I’ve only wrestled Mia Yim once, I think that she’s very talented and would love to do that again one day. Candice LeRae and I barely touched. We’ve just only ever really wrestled in a tag match.
“There are people like Chelsea Green. I mean Britt Baker in AEW. It’s so crazy to me that I haven’t wrestled these people but, I don’t know it’s 2020, who knows what can happen with everyone working together and the wrestling community coming together to create these dream matches for all the fans. So those are just you know some off the top of my head.”
Impact Wrestling’s Hard to Kill is tomorrow in Dallas, Texas. Taya Valkyrie will defend her title against Jordynne Grace and ODB. Wrestling Inc. will have complete coverage of the show at 8 pm ET. We’re also on hand to provide updates via our Twitter account.
