In the latest video from WWE Performance Center’s YouTube Channel, Kacy Catanzaro speaks about her time away, her return and her friendship with Kayden Carter. Both SuperStars address Kacy’s absence from the brand, why she left and how it affected them.
During last week’s episode of NXT Catanzaro made a surprise return in the number one contender’s battle royal. The welcome return surprised many as it was widely assumed that she was no longer with the company after rumours circulated last year had requested her release from WWE due to injury.
In the video Kacy explains that “I just kinda was figuring out if this is the right path for me or not,” she said. “This is people’s dreams since they’re born. But for me, it wasn’t what I always knew I wanted to do. I had my own paths. I had gymnastics, I had American Ninja Warrior. Those were my, kinda, forever dreams. And I think that coming into something new like this, I think that it is fair to have moments where you’re not sure. Physically, mentally, I just didn’t know if this was the right place for me.”
Kacy goes on to talk about what ultimately brought her back “taking some time away to rehab, take care of myself physically and also mentally. Just do some soul searching and to some looking into the future, where do I see myself? What’s important to me? And obviously it brought me back here.”
Now that she is back with a new approach Kacy beams “it’s just exciting to be back and see what the possibilities are with a brand new mindset.”
It was great to Kacy back in NXT last week and we hope we will be seeing her a whole lot more.
