ndie Watch is our regular series that looks at all of the amazing talents working the independent circuits around the world. Some are veterans revitalizing their careers, some are indie prospects hitting their peaks, while others are names to be on the watch for! In this edition, we look at one of the fastest rising stars in the vibrant Texas indie scene, Rok-C!
The Texas independent wrestling scene has been spitting out some of the most talented women’s wrestlers on the entire U.S. indie circuit. Names like AQA, Promise Braxton, and Kylie Rae have come through companies such as Reality Of Wrestling to refine their game. One of the newest names to gain notoriety in Texas with ROW is Rok-C, who at just 19, is already one of the most refined and promising unsigned talents in the U.S. Let’s take a look at the career to date of Rok-C.
Rok-C Fulfilling Lifelong Dream
As shared by Rok-C on Instagram, she had a brief cameo on Total Divas at the age of just 13, where she stated that she was intent on becoming a “diva” in the future. She began training at just 13 years of age with the Laredo Wrestling Alliance (LWA) before making her debut in April of 2016 on a Ladies Night event at just 14. Most of her early work came for LWA as part of Whatateam. At LWA, she notably trained under Daga, who many will know from his IMPACT Wrestling and AAA runs.
By 2018, she had begun attending Texas Wrestling Academy (TWA) seminars and wrestled on their shows. Her schedule began to fill up with dates all around Texas by the end of 2018, competing for the likes of LWA, TWA, Heart Of Texas Wrestling, and Heavy Metal Wrestling. At the end of 2018, she got to have a personal dream match when she took on Kylie Rae in a singles contest on December 13th.
While Rok-C was quick to make her way all over Texas, it was in 2019, when she broke out in a major way. Most notably she became a regular with Reality Of Wrestling, which has quickly gained a reputation as a breeding ground for women’s wrestling stars. That year she also got to make her debut for premier women’s wrestling company, SHIMMER Wrestling, as well as RISE Wrestling, AAW Pro in Chicago, Mission Pro Wrestling, and various other companies. She seemed primed to have a breakout year in 2020 with more and more companies taking notice of her prodigious talents.
2020 got off to the start she wanted as she dethroned Hyan to win the ROW Diamond Division Championship in February. Still just a teenager, Rok-C had now captured one of the top women’s championships in the entire independent scene. It has a lineage of greatness from names like Kylie Rae, Hyan, AQA, Alex Gracia, to current champion Promise Braxton, who WILL take over the wrestling world sooner or later. Despite the title’s prestigious lineage, only Rok-C can lay claim to being the longest-reigning champion in title history.
COVID-19 put a pin in Rok-C’s 2020 but she has picked up where she left off as shows slowly return. She is currently lined up for a huge clash with Deonna Purrazzo at WrestleMania weekend, is on a quest to reclaim her Diamond Division Championship in ROW, and has some major matches lined up for Generation Championship Wrestling. COVID put a stop to Rok-C’s rise in 2020 but 2021 is set to be the year the independent wrestling world takes notice of one of its brightest stars.
