Former LUCHA UNDERGROUND Star Thunder Rosa Explains Why She Had No Interest In A WWE Offer

The former Lucha Underground star sits down with Bloody Elbow and explains the journey to her first professional MMA fight in Combate Americas. Find out why Thunder Rosa turned down a WWE contract offer.

Melissa Cervantes – Kobra Moon in Lucha Underground – talks about her career with Bloody Elbow.

The former Lucha Underground star is set to make her MMA debut for Combate Americas at Combate 49: San Antonio tonight, and Cervantes discusses the road she took to get to this point in her career. During the interview, Cervantes reveals that she received a WWE contract offer; however, the current NWA star explains why the offer wasn’t something that she was interested in:

“I was at a crossroads in my career. I’ve been wrestling for about six years. The opportunity came to me and it sparked my interest. Everything just happened at the same time. Combate offered me a contract, WWE contacted me, National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) contacted me at the same time. I had to make really big decisions. The WWE offer wasn’t something that I was interested in. It definitely offered stability for my family and I, but that’s not what I want. My goal in life is bigger than that. Being a fighter and continuing to wrestle at the same time is the platform I need,” she shared. “I am fighting not only for me and my family, but for those I inspire along the way to believe in themselves.”

The former Lucha Underground star also talks about her MMA training and much more throughout the interview. Check it out here.
