Shaul Guerrero has made her way back into the ring over the course of the past year. She made her return at a GCW event in December and participated in two matches in the Diamond Cup for the GCW Women’s Title.
Her bookings are continuing as she will be at an MPW show on Feb. 6 and the first GSW show on Feb. 20. At GSW she will be taking on the IMPACT Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo. She speaks with Wrestling Inc. Daily on this booking and how she feels to face Purrazzo.
“Honestly, Brandon hit me up, one of the owners of GSW, and I wasn’t even aware I was going to be facing Deonna Purrazzo until they posted on their Instagram,” Guerrero admitted. “And I was like, ‘Holy crap!’ I freaked out. I was really excited, really intimidated, but also, I can’t wait to learn from Deonna and just get in the ring with her. I feel very honored.“
“In a lot of ways, I feel like a veteran mentally in a certain way because I’ve been in the business since before I could walk. I’m just very used to wrestling, but Deonna, Deonna has been consistent as far as in-ring competition. We’ve trained at the same place. Deonna trained with NXT and the WWE Performance Center.”
“So I’m very interested in seeing how our dynamic will be in the ring. I’ve only met Deonna one time. So the next time we’re going to meet, it will be more than a brief encounter, hopefully, and I can’t wait to see what magic we make in the ring.”
She also speaks on working during the pandemic and how she feels about it. Guerrero is grateful to be receiving bookings and hopes everyone is being as safe as they can be.
“With the pandemic, I feel first of all, incredibly fortunate that I even have a booking,” Guerrero pointed out. “It’s difficult for everyone to get bookings, and thankfully, there’s so many women wrestlers and there’s so many wrestlers in general now and there’s so many companies to be able to choose from.”
“So I just felt very honored that GSW feels confident in me to be on the debut show and whatnot, and I’m really looking forward to it. Right now, my show requirements are, is everyone going to be safe? Is the talent going to be safe? Are the fans going to be safe? And so long as those things are understood and I feel confident with who I am in the ring with, then bring it. Let’s tear the house down absolutely.”
Guerrero has been seen at various promotions over the past several years outside of the ring. She has worked for Lucha Underground, WOW, and was recently seen at AEW ring announcing the Deadly Draw Tournament. She says that her big goal would be to get to AEW and be signed as an in-ring competitor.
“I would absolutely love to go. That’s my big goal honestly,” Guerrero revealed. “I’m going to keep working my ass off until they take notice of me as an in-ring competitor. I’m going to do everything I can to get noticed by them because that’s where I want to be.”
She adds, “We’ll see how long I can wrestle. I’m hoping to keep my body really in tip-top shape. I’m doing a lot better now that I don’t have to bump every single day. I can actually take a day off after I have a really intense match. So that’s really wonderful, but honestly, when I went to AEW to announce and I was watching Dustin Rhodes teach the girls, they were having class and the bug was biting you really bad.”
