How she met Trish: “I wonder if Trish remembers this…… It was in Florida, we had both just been hired and were not on the road yet. At this time there was not a developmental territory, but we were brought in just to meet with some management and writers to talk about some possible ideas and general acclimation. Our contracts both included rental car vouchers, but you had to be 25 to rent a car. We were both 24 and worried about how we were going to travel. I was going to turn 25 about 6 months before her, so our plan was that I should hopefully have turned 25 by they time they called us up and I would make sure she had a ride, too.”
How it feels to have inspired so many young people: “That is probably my proudest accomplishment. While it is flattering when people say they want to grow up to be a wrestler because of me, I can appreciate and feel honor in that. However, it gives me the most joy when someone says that they were inspired by me to be them. I have pretty specific, quirky interests. I can enjoy talking with people who share similar interests with me, but what is far more attractive is someone knowing who they are. My whole life I have drawn inspiration from things so far removed from the events they actually inspired, but I think that’s important. To find inspiration and drive in things you see and experience in life, but use those things not to copy or emulate, but to just be that little push or fire to give make you want to set out whatever is in your heart.”
