La Sombra On What he Can bring To WWE, The WWE Performance Center, More

New WWE NXT signee Manuel Alfonso Andrade Oropeza, aka La Sombra, recently spoke with Jim Varsallone of the Miami Herald and below are some interview highlights:

On enjoying being a wrestler and what he will bring to the WWE:

“I really enjoy everything about this profession. From the training I do preparing for my matches, to the time I spend in the dressing room getting ready, right up until I make my entrance to the ring and the final bell rings. Wrestling is my passion and what I love. Fans can expect me to bring my high-flying luchador techniques and a brand new character from my time in CMLL [Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre].”

On if coming from a wrestling family is an advantage:

 “Wrestling is in my blood and is who I am. It is my life and not only my job but my passion as well. This does not necessarily give me an advantage over others. I still have to work hard at my craft and soak in everything from the great coaches and trainers at the WWE Performance Center.”

His thought on the WWE Performance center:

“The WWE Performance Center is absolutely magnificent and like nothing I have ever seen or trained at before. It will allow me to work on the physical part of my training at the world-class gym, my in-ring skills with the seven full-size training rings and my character development in the green rooms. Furthermore, while I am here, I will be immersed in the professional development program they offer that focuses on life skills, education, wellness and career success. Anything you could ever need in the sports entertainment industry is right here for me, and I look forward to taking advantage of all it has to offer.”
