Thunder Rosa on what made her want to become a wrestler

Rosa saw the potential of becoming an artist in professional wrestling, and the idea of being on TV was one of the main attractions. Thunder Rosa admitted that she always wanted to become a soap opera actress.
"It was never a dream of mine to become a pro wrestler. It's after I did the tryouts to become a wrestler, I was like, I think I can do this. It's very challenging. It's probably one of the most challenging things I'd do physically. Then I would say that after I would try MMA. But, I saw the potential of becoming an artist, and I always wanted to be an artist, you know, as a child. Now, it's coming to fruition; it's coming to reality. You know being on TV, I always wanted to be on TV. I wanted to do a soap opera, like actress and stuff. So now I'm a soap opera actress but in the ring."
