The Glow Is Here To Stay
WrestleZone Managing Editor Bill Pritchard spoke with Trinity about joining IMPACT Wrestling. She wants to continue building her ‘glow’ persona and believes there can be many layers to it.
“That’s what I am looking forward to. I feel that the glow is me, the glow is here to stay. That is what makes me unique, that is my thing. That is something I’ve put my heart, mind, body, and soul into. However, I do want to see the different layers to it,” she said. “I wanna see where I can go with this thing, this character, this person, this entrance, and this aura. I haven’t tapped into it yet, really just touched the surface of it.
“We don’t know what the glow looks like when she’s pissed, what she looks like on a bad day,” she added. “We don’t know what it’s like to fear the glow, so maybe on this IMPACT journey, we can get there, who knows? I know that there’s more to do with it, and we shall see what happens.”
