Support Your Local Wrestler Spotlight

Miranda at the Mae Young ClassicMiranda Salinas was born in Houston, Texas. She grew up watching wrestling as a kid with her cousin Vance. After graduating high school, she attended college part-time for Physical Therapy and when she became 18, she first stepped foot in the ring at a small gym. Just one year later, she was contacted by Reality Of Wrestling and started to train there. She worked the independent circuit for four years and was then contacted by WWE for a tryout in February, 2017. In late April, she received a call and an official invitation to be a part of the Mae Young Classic that will air August 24th on the WWE Network. She now continues to follow her journey to becoming a WWE Superstar.

“The moment I realized I was actually getting better was when it became addicting,” Miranda says of her love of wrestling. “It was like giving a child a piece of cake. Once I got my basics down and noticed that I was actually somewhat ‘good,’ it drove me to always want to be in a ring. No one or nothing could take me away from it.”

 

Wrestlers are Fans, Too:

When Miranda talks about what is happening in wrestling right now that’s exciting for her as a fan, her response is, “Women’s Revolution, along with the Mae Young Classic.” Growing up, she watched Trish Stratus as an inspiration and as she got into wrestling herself, “AJ Lee was someone I always looked up to.”

What Gets Her in the Ring:

“There’s no place like home,” she says about the ring. “Being in the ring is something that distracts me from the rest of the world,” she says, saying that it blocks out any other worries, like “work, school, etc.”

On Being a Role Model:

When her fans see her, especially girls, she hopes that she a role model to children. “When I was young watching wrestling, I looked to the wrestlers as superheroes, and I hope that I can have someone else look at me the same way.” For little girls, especially, there is a draw to her: “it just amazes me how they look at me when I speak to them. I don’t know what goes on in their heads, but I can tell I’m something special in their eyes and it’s the best feeling in the world.” Social media makes the interaction with her fans easier: “I try to notice everyone who sends me a message or at least like a picture here and there. They will never go unnoticed.” That kind of interaction really helps keep her fans engaged, but how does that interaction make Miranda feel? “When a fan comments on a picture of mine or tells me how much they love me, it’s actually something that makes me really happy and puts a smile on my face.”

What’s Next:

“I do have a few really exciting things coming up in the next few months, but everyone will just have to be on the lookout for that as I won’t announce until it happens.” To follow Miranda Salinas, and be the first to find out about the exciting opportunities in her future, follow her on Twitter and Instagram.
