Renee Paquette was recently interviewed by MMA Mania, where she spoke about the upcoming Jon Moxley / Nick Gage match at GCW Fight Club on October 9th.
“I just kind of grit my teeth and bear with i. I watch everything because I’m mostly keeping an eye to see what level of insanity we’re really working with so I can yell at him once he gets back home. Because he scares the s—t out of me. Especially with a guy like Nick Gage. These two are going to absolutely push the envelope and do some terrifying things. But it’s his expression of art so I get to enjoy it all.”
Renee was asked who she would have in her corner if she were to ever have an MMA fight.
“My husband [Moxley] for sure. I feel like his s—t talking skills are something I need a little bit more. I just like his swagger for my entrance and feel like I can lean on him for that. Josh Barnett chimed in on Twitter saying he thinks he can scrounge up enough change from the couch cushion for me for this fight that I’m conjuring up. I think he would be a great person… I think Miesha would have to be the third, of course."
On what her walkout song would be.
“I would always joke that my walkout music would be ‘Bicycle Race’ by Queen. Maybe ‘Under Pressure’? I feel like you can’t go wrong with ‘Under Pressure,’ it’s a crowd-pleaser. People can really get behind it.”
On her dream celebrity opponent.
“I would say celebrity crossover fight. I guess it should be a woman. I kind of liken this to Tonya Harding when she started boxing, so maybe I can get Tonya Harding to dust off her boxing gloves and we can go at it. Not that we have any beef between us, to begin with, but because I’m basically modelling my pro-career off of her pro-fighting career.”
Finally, Renee spoke about working with Mauro Ronallo and Arca Ocal.
“It makes me so happy. It’s really so cool. It blows my mind to look back on it. I’ll use Arda as an example, everything he has been able to do,” she gushes. “Showing up on ESPN, that dude just works so hard. He just makes it work whether it’s him doing NHL, him covering video games, jumping on SportsCenter. He just finds a way to just get in there and get that work done. I couldn’t be more proud of him and the career that he’s been able to carve out for himself.
“Mauro Ranallo, one of the best voices in all of combat sports. The fact that I was able to start my career around him. That was one of my first experiences with being around anyone of his caliber. Even when he joined WWE for a little bit, it was so nice to be able to see him there and being able to reconnect with him and follow his career."
