Taya Valkyrie Shares AEW Experience and WWE Reflections

In a recent dialogue with Chris Van Vliet, Taya Valkyrie, the AEW star, discussed a range of topics, including her upcoming TBS Championship match at AEW Double or Nothing, her impressions of the AEW locker room, and her perspective on WWE.

Valkyrie was asked about the possibility of re-signing with WWE, to which she responded that she hadn’t given it much thought. She acknowledged that some of her friends, such as Chelsea Green, had returned to WWE and were doing well, but she herself didn’t feel a strong pull to return.

“I didn’t really think about it too much. Obviously, I have some friends that have gone back, for example, Chelsea Green is an example and she’s thriving and she is killing it. I’m so proud of her. But like, I didn’t really think about it too much. I just knew that if it was meant to be, it was meant to be and I was kind of indifferent. I didn’t know if I wanted to subject myself to being in a space like that again. I mean, it worked out. I couldn’t be happier about it.”

Regarding her reception in the AEW locker room, Valkyrie described a positive and welcoming atmosphere. She mentioned that some people, including Britt Baker, were aware of her arrival, while others were pleasantly surprised. Despite the nerves that come with starting a new job, Valkyrie emphasized the warm reception she received.

“I was welcomed with open arms and it was such good energy. Everyone was just surprised to see me. I think Britt knew. I’m trying to think who else knew? But yeah, it was just so positive. I mean, when you’re starting a new job anywhere, it doesn’t matter where it is, you know, in a studio like this or if it’s in pro-wrestling or a restaurant, you always have those kinds of nerves because you never know what’s really going to happen. It’s like walking into the first day of school. You know, like, catering, I’m like, which lunch table do I sit at? I’m still, you know, trying to figure that out, but honestly, everyone was so welcoming and excited and it just made me a much more calm person and just felt like I belonged there.”

As she gears up for her TBS Championship match at AEW Double Or Nothing, Valkyrie expressed her focus and gratitude for the support she has received from the AEW roster.
