Cora Jade recently got to appear on WWE Raw for the first time as she prepares for a huge grudge match at NXT Halloween Havoc.
The rivalry between 21-year-old Cora Jade and her former best friend Roxanne Perez (who turns 21 in November) will see the two NXT standouts face off in a “Weapons Wild Match” at Halloween Havoc later this evening. On October 17th, Jade made her Raw debut in a backstage segment by picking Rhea Ripley to face Perez on NXT.
Ripley would go on to beat Perez on the October 18th episode of NXT while Jade’s match with Raquel Rodriguez ended in a disqualification.
While taking part in an interview with Nick Hausman of WrestlingInc, Cora talked about her experience on Raw.
“It was great. The first time I was backstage of that environment, was when I did a Smackdown dark match last year with Dakota [Kai], which, she’s one of my favorite people, in and outside of the ring, she’s incredible. So that was my first experience, but this was my first time being actually on the show, part of the show, having a storyline that related inside the show. So that was really cool.”
“Like I said, I got to see Mustafa Ali, which was great. And then just being able to be backstage and see how it works there and see the process of it all and all these people who now, everyone up there pretty much has been wrestling longer than me. So to see how they think about things, how they work through things is very cool. And it’s a motivation, set something on fire under you, a little bit of motivation and inspiration of where you’re headed to or what I dream of or where to be next. So it’s very inspiring to see that and reminds you what you work for.”
