One of the best and most recognizable rock guitarist in the world of music and wrestling Nita Strauss of Alice Cooper has been performing in WWE on numerous events and for a few Stars, including on Night One of NXT TakeOver: Stand And Deliver, when she performed the National Anthem and the entrance music of Shinsuke Nakamura at WrestleMania 34.
Strauss also performed with Lzzy Hale at WWE's 2018 Evolution PPV. Speaking on Wrestling Inc.'s Daily podcast, Strauss revealed what Evolution meant to her. Strauss said it was amazing and she feels like Evolution was a victory for so many women in so many industries, even for women who aren't in the pro wrestling industry.
Nita Strauss said, “It was amazing.” “I feel like Evolution was a victory for so many women in so many industries, even those of us that aren’t pro wrestlers. There are women all over the world, whether it’s musicians like myself or bankers or race car drivers or anybody, a neurosurgeon, that’s sort of in a boy’s job. To get to see these incredible, beautiful, strong athletes getting to go out there and have a night to themselves to showcase what they can do, I would have been just as excited to watch it as a fan, much less get to perform."
“Getting to do it with Lzzy [Hale] was just the icing on the cake because she’s so amazing, she’s made such great strides for what women do in my industry. It was cool, and I did get to watch the rest of it as a fan. I was on the side watching the entire event afterwards. I did like fifteen minutes of press and then just watched the whole thing.”
Strauss also talked about a fellow rock musician in Poppy performing at WWE's NXT TakeOver: Stand And Deliver Night Two Event. Strauss said that it's really cool that Poppy and her are on the same label, which is Sumerian Records. Strauss also said they all know each other and they're all friends from LA and it’s sort of like the invasion of the rock girls, which includes Ash Costello.
Nita Strauss said, “It’s really cool, Poppy and I are on the same label, Sumerian Records.” “Now Ash Costello, not on Sumerian, but another awesome female metalhead chick, she does Rhea Ripley’s theme and she’s performing it at Mania. It’s sort of like, the invasion of us rock girls. We all know each other, we’re all friends from LA. For the three of us to get to go out kick a– this week is going to be a lot of fun.”
