Mae Young Classic participant Marti Belle recently spoke to the Latin Times about her participation in the tournament:
“It is an amazing honor and an incredible feeling to be the first female Dominican citizen to be represented in the WWE. I have worked very hard for almost a decade to make this dream come true and the fact that I get the chance to represent the Dominican Republic is completely breathtaking.
You can expect that I’m going to be giving everything I have. I will not go down without a fight, I didn’t make it this far, to only make it this far.”
She also gave a message to her fellow Dominican Republicans:
“Never give up on your dreams. If you love something and have a lot of passion for it, don’t stop until you’ve accomplished it. And when you feel like you’re there, keep pushing yourself. We are hard-working people, and when we set our minds to something, we are unstoppable.”
