It’s not uncommon for pro wrestlers from other companies to know each other, after all, they often travel the world together on the indie wrestling scene before arriving in whatever larger company they fall into.
Taya Valkyrie recently surprised some fans when she posted a picture with Viktor from the Ascension. Her tweet read “Hello old friend” and included a fun little selfie they took.
Viktor traveled the indies starting in Canada so he and Taya likely crossed paths a lot. Both Taya and her husband Johnny Impact are very good friends with several WWE Superstars as he is still friends with many of his former co-workers in WWE.
While Viktor seems to be on a roll on Raw as The Ascension keep racking up wins against Bobby Roode and Chad Gable, Taya is doing well on Impact as she’s set to challenge Tessa Blanchard for the Knockouts Title at Bound For Glory. So it’s very cool that these two old friends had a chance to catch up.
