Spotlight/Q&A with Amber Rodriguez

1. What inspired you to become a professional wrestler?

I've always wanted to since childhood, seeing stars like Shawn Micheals, Mickie James, etc... I knew I wanted to be a part of this business.

2. How did you get the opportunity to work for Mission Pro Wrestling?

No different than any other booking, I was contacted by their booker and accepted.

3. Tell me about your experience wrestling at Mission Pro Wrestling?

It's a wonderful experience. Being around such a plethora of knowledge and getting to learn from everyone. Being around greats like Jazz and getting to pick the brain of great legends like her and Madusa, it's one of those locker rooms where you take in as much as you can and you come out better. Thunder Rosa really has something special.

4. 2020 being the year of double champions, how did it feel being apart of that trend?

Triple champion. And it felt great. I look forward to the future. 

5. Tell me about your alliance with Danni Bee and Promise Braxton?

The Queendom is truly something amazing and we have more great things to come. I've always loved being in stables and taking the lead of an all women's stable is truly an honor, I can't wait to show everyone what we have in store and continue to provide that representation that this business needs. Thank you to Scott Bruce of RWR for introducing us and thank you to Booker T and Kevin Bernhardt for training such professional and talented young women such as Danni and Promise.

6. Since returning to the ring in late 2019, has your return been what you expected?

With the pandemic hitting, I'm gonna say no. Lol, but as always I've continued to overcome and persevere and have been blessed to receive the opportunities that I've gotten.

7. What are your plans for 2021?

To be an even better version of myself. 

8. Tell me something about yourself that's non-wrestling related that you would want your fans to know?

I am launching a CBD infused skin care line in the spring. Email to join the mailing list for product samples. 

9. If you could only have one more match, who would you want it to be against?


10. What's your favorite and least favorite thing about being a professional wrestler?

My favorite is that feeling when you walk through the curtain and all eyes are on you, you get to be someone else and sit on top of the world for a little while, then you get in the ring, and you're feeding off high energy. Nothing else matters in that moment, what happened at work, what someone said about you on Twitter. That moment is precious. 

Least favorite is the emotional drainage that this business can sometimes cause. I have really bad social anxiety so interacting with so many people at one time can be exhausting. 

Also, the time that I have to spend away from my baby girl, but I work hard to provide a better life for us so it'll all be worth it one day.
