WWE star Tiffany Stratton recently spoke with WittyWhittier on a number of topics including how her background as a gynmast has helped in her wrestling career and how it gave her a strong base to work off of when it came to the ring.

Stratton said, “So gymnastics, honestly, it taught me everything that I know.” “Taught me hard work, dedication, coordination, flexibility, like all the physical stuff and all the mental stuff as well. In wrestling, you have to be coordinated. You have to be flexible. I feel like gymnastics really helped, gives you such a good base for any sport, let alone wrestling.”

“I definitely feel like I had a leg up on everybody because of my gymnastics background. I don’t know if you realize, but we have so many gymnasts now at the PC and that are on NXT TV and they’re doing so well right now. So I think gymnastics has definitely given me a leg up and has shown that, you know, with the gymnastics background and, you can definitely become a successful professional wrestler.”
