Tenille Dashwood is on a mission to legitimize herself as one of the talented female performers in the pro wrestling business.
After working her Emma and other various characters during her time in WWE, Dashwood spoke during a recent ROH media call to promote Friday's "Best in the World" pay-per-view about wanting to be taken seriously.
"I definitely want to be taken seriously," Tenille Dashwood said when asked about distancing herself from her past comedic personas. "I didn't feel like I had something to prove if anything it was for myself. I wanted to wrestle. I wanted to enjoy wrestling again and to meet all my fans and have competitive matches and those were all goals I had for myself."
Dashwood continued, "So I definitely want to be taken seriously to show myself I could do it still and you know to give that back to the fans too."
ROH: Best in the World 2018 takes place this Friday, June 29th from the UMBC Events Center in Baltimore, Maryland, airing live on pay-per-view.
