Tay Conti has accomplished a lot in her short time in All Elite Wrestling, including taking part in her first singles match on pay-per-view, as well as her first Championship match.
Conti was a recent guest on the Elite POV podcast, where she spoke about some of her goals in her career that she has achieved. Conti spoke about how her original goal was to compete at WrestleMania, which she achieved back in 2018.
“When I signed with WWE before, I was like, ‘well, I didn’t go to the Olympics, I didn’t get a medal. So how do I put this dream into my new career?’ For me it was like, ‘WrestleMania is my Olympic Games.’ I was lke, ‘I want to get there and that’s how I’m going to feel like my dream is coming true,’ and thank god I did. The battle royal was something so special to me. I was like, ‘damn it, I feel like I made it.’”
Conti continued on, detailing she received her first t-shirt and action figure in AEW, and her reaction to seeing them for the first time.
“I didn’t even know and they just showed me and I was like, ‘oh my god. That has my face. I have a shirt with my face on.’ But my action figure was like something else. That’s my favorite thing ever. I bought thirty for my whole family. It was crazy because they gave it to me on the PPV, the same day as the PPV. So I was over-emotional, I was super nervous with my match. They made a video, I didn’t see the video yet but they were recording it. They gave it to me and I just cried.”
Conti finally spoke about how she is a big fan of the Japanese wrestling style, and how one of her biggest goals for next year is to wrestle in the country.
“I started watching Japanese matches. Maybe because of Judo too, I made the whole connection in my mind, I fell in love. I love the Japanese style, it’s like my favorite style ever. I don’t know, I really want to go to Japan, of course, I hope next year I can do it, it’s one of my biggest goals for sure. I want to go there and learn, and get hit in the face, and hit people in the face.”
Conti recently picked up a victory over Penelope Ford in a Submission match on last night’s (December 17) episode of AEW Rampage.
