– WWE NXT Star Ruby Riot recently participated in a interview with The Miami Herald to help promote WWE NXT’s upcoming event from the Watsco Center at the University of Miami in Coral Gables on Friday October 6th.

On her love for professional wrestling:

“I’m a little bit different than a lot of my peers,” she said. “I was introduced to independent wrestling, when I was 15-years-old. My childhood best friend and her whole family adored it, and we used to go watch her older brother do it. The lights and the costumes — however, kind of mediocre that they were because of the budget that they had — it was still very much something I wanted to try. I actually chose to do it when I was 19 and started training. The moment I stepped into a professional wrestling ring you couldn’t get me out of it.

On staying true to herself:

“Instead of really shunning my weird oddities, professional wrestling embraced my quirkiness,” she said, “and really helped me embrace myself and stay true to myself and accept myself and really bring out even more of these oddities that people seem to embrace. It has really helped me with my confidence and really made me the woman who I am today.”

On what inspired her name:

“The name Ruby Riot was very much inspired by my punk rock background,” she said. “There is a song by Rancid that is inspired by a Ruby name. Riot, obviously, when you think of punk rockers, mosh pits, riots, everything like that.”

On growing up a introverted, awkward kid but now wanting to branch out and see the world:

“I grew up in a small town in Indiana, and nothing really happened there,” she said. “I was an introverted, awkward kid. I didn’t really know how to socialize and make friends. I was kind of a loner. Maybe a little weird, I would say [chuckles]. I don’t know if I’ve really grown out of that very much…I really wanted to see what [it]was like outside of these small towns in Indiana and grow and branch out and see the world.”
