As noted, Rosa Mendes announced her retirement from pro wrestling earlier this week. Mendes recently spoke with WWE.com about her career and more. During the interview, she was asked about what led to her announcing her retirement. She noted that the older that you get, your dreams evolve and that for years her dream was to become WWE Women’s Champion. However, because she is a mom and with the man of her dreams, her dreams are different now for her.
When asked about her favorite moments in WWE, she stated that it was when she jumped over the barricade when she was obsessed with Beth Phoenix. “I had to jump over the railing and attack Melina … several times! But then, WWE officials said, “Wow, I think we have a star on our hands.” So that was a big moment.”
