Veda Scott Weighs Up If She Wants to Do Announcing or Wrestling in the Future
Veda Scott has worked both as a wrestler and commentary during her pro wrestling career, but she admits that a full-time move towards the commentary booth could be on the horizon for her given the nature of the business.

“I think I can do both, however I recognize the value of committing yourself to one thing, particularly if you’re looking at a higher level like in AEW or WWE or wherever,” Scott said. “Sometimes being versatile is great and having a background is great but also spreading yourself too thin makes it impossible to be good at one thing and many times being ok at many things.

Scott has wrestled sparingly since the pandemic started, but she did appear on several episodes of AEW Dark as a special guest commentator.
