Rosa Mendes (Milena Roucka) on getting surgery, Returning to the ring, WWE developmental

Rosa Mendes’s Mike Tedesco spoke with former WWE star and “Total Divas” cast member Rosa Mendes live at Starrcast in Chicago during ALL IN weekend recently.

Here are a few highlights from the interview.

On postponing surgery to be part of Starrcast:

“I was supposed to get surgery last week and I postponed my surgery to come to Starrcast. That’s how historical it is. ALL IN and Starrcast, people are here from all over the world. I had to be here.”

What type of surgery she was scheduled to have:

“I tore my ACL, meniscus in the ring. So I won’t be wrestling for 8 months. I was really sad about it and I was just getting back into the game. I was working so hard and I guess I overworked.”

On her run with WWE and time in developmental:

“There wasn’t a lot of opportunity for me (at that time) and I found an opportunity valet. I have a passion for this business so much. A lot of people think that because I was a valet that I don’t have passion for wrestling. I trained like everyone else in developmental. I trained for 3 and a half years. I busted my butt. I traveled with everyone else. But that was the role for me. The goal is to be an in-ring competitor and be the best I can be.”
