This week on Vickie Guerrero’s “Excuse Me” podcast, she welcomes AEW and “Titan Games” star Dasha Kuret to the show.
Dasha talks about her time on “Titan Games,” her journey from being a beauty pageant contestant to pro wrestling, her future in AEW as a broadcaster and wrestler, and much more.
Here are some highlights from the interview:
Dasha was asked how she got into AEW: “I started at Fyter Fest last year in Daytona. I just casually winged with Billy Gunn to see what AEW was all about. Within less than a course of a year, I was already signed to them. I started as a timekeeper for Fyter Fest and Fight for the Fallen. Then all of a sudden, I kept at it. I asked if they needed anything? Do you need interviewers? I’ll be more than happy to help out. Then Cody asked if I spoke Spanish. I said yes. He asked what I thought of doing Spanish commentary. I said I never did it before, but, if you are willing to give me a chance, I’m more than willing to give it 110%. Then during all this crazy pandemic, I got to ring announce. It’s just been a crazy whirlwind.”
Dasha talked about the difference between her experience in WWE and AEW: “Well, at AEW, I’ve gotten so many opportunities. If you bring up an idea and it makes sense to them, they are like, cool, let’s go for it. They are two completely different experiences. I had to travel so much with WWE. Everything was a lot more strict and there were a lot more rules. With AEW, they want to make the culture a little bit different. Everyone is so accepting. Everyone is so kind. I’m not saying it wasn’t like that at WWE because we had built a really good locker room. We tried breaking a lot of stereotypes that female wrestlers had, like cattiness. (In AEW) It’s so wild how everyone is so body positive. Everyone is constantly finding the good. If somebody comes up with an idea for someone, it’s so cool to see that relationship in the AEW in the locker room. Everyone can be so creative and different and unique. I love that about AEW. You don’t have to be scared to give an idea and then they give it to somebody else.”
