The newest IMPACT Wrestling signee is Tasha Steelz and she plans to knock out The Knockout Division. In an interview with the IMPACT website, Steelz made her intentions clear as to what her long and short-term goals are in the company, and “The Boricua Bad Ass” gave a little background about herself as well.
“I feel great signing with Impact,” she said. “I have been working extremely hard for this moment and, in my mind, I’m saying, ‘It’s about damn time!’ I’ve been watching Impact Wrestling for a long time, following everything Impact has been doing over the years and the amazing talent (on the roster). I feel I can bring a different flavor to the Knockouts Division.
Family always comes first with Steelz and that is most certainly plays a factor in her long-term goals at IMPACT Wrestling.
“Being able to provide for myself (and) my family (because) family always comes first. I also want to become the best female athlete, period. I don’t just want to be in the talks of ‘Who’s the best female wrestler?’ I want to be in talks of who’s the best female athlete. When I retire, I want people to say that I’ve done it all, that I’ve achieved every goal I set out to achieve, won every title, made history for my culture, inspired others just as people inspired me. I want to be able to go back to where I came from and have my community and my family be proud of everything I’ve done in my career.”
Steelz does have an eye on that Knockouts Title prize, but she also does have great respect for the current champ, Jordynne Grace:
“I have a lot of respect for Jordynne and we are no strangers to each other. I think she’s great, powerful, very athletic, but as champion of the Knockouts Division, she also has a target on her back. She has the title belt that every woman on the roster wants and will stop at nothing to get, including myself, so I am really looking forward to seeing her sometime soon.”
