In a recent interview with Jeremy Lambert and Joel Pearl as part of Fightful’s In The Weeds podcast, Salina de la Renta discussed several topics, including her decision to depart the company in 2021, her recent return to MLW and more.

Highlights from the interview are below:

On her decision to depart MLW in 2021: “I got a full scholarship to being at Full Sail University in Orlando, and I didn’t think I was going to be able to juggle everything as a full-time student, I didn’t think it was the right move to be on the road, sacrifice my studies and potentially lose the scholarship. I dedicated the last two years to going to school full-time, now I’m graduating in November, so I felt like the timing was right. Now that I know what school is like, and how I’ve been doing well, I’m going to continue to do my Masters and do both, I feel more confident now.”

On her recent return to MLW: “I was really excited to come back. It was different, very different, not what I expected. What I remember from MLW looked every different than what I saw, but it changed for the better, Court Bauer has done a really good job filtering through who is really not supposed to be there and who is actually contributing to the roster. It was very enlightening to see, I felt good, it felt like I never left. I got to see some of my friends, mainly production, since the roster has changed a lot, it realy just felt like I’ve been on vacation.”
