One half of the IMPACT Wrestling Knockouts Tag Team Champions Taya Valkyrie recently sat down with Spencer Love of Love Wrestling to discuss a wide variety of subjects. When asked about facing Kamille for the NWA Women’s Championship later this month at NWA 74, Valkyrie is excited to add that championship to her collection.
“I’ve been adapting well. I think I thrive in any environment that challenges me, and this was just a different style or a different look, and just different overall. I think that that’s exciting,” Taya Valkyrie. “I’m just happy to be bringing my Taya Valkyrie flair and flamboyancy and fabulousness to the NWA, and I’ll continue to do that at NWA 74. I mean, it’s me versus Kamille. Kamille and I have wrestled before in XPW here on the west coast, so I know what I’m up against.
“I’m very excited to be wrestling someone who really challenges me and is physically – she just is tall. She’s strong. She’s extremely talented. She’s been holding this championship for a long time. So me, as the modern-day – I don’t want to say belt collector. I’m just gonna say multi-time champion. I just want to add the NWA Women’s [Championship], the Burke, to my collection. I’m excited for NWA 74 on August 27th and 28th. I will be wrestling on the 27th, though, at the Chase in St. Louis.”
When asked how it feels to challenge for such a title that has been around for decades, Valkyrie compares it to challenging for the Reina de Reinas Championship.
“I would compare it to when I challenged for the first time, for example, for the Reina de Reinas Championship in AAA, which now am the Reina de Reina’s Champion,” Taya Valkyrie said. “It’s my fourth title reign as champion. It carries a lot of legacy and a lot of history. The top women in this sport have held it. So people who have paved the way so for me, I have so much respect for the work, and I just know that I’m going in there ready to kick some ass.”
