Back during the Ringside Fest convention, former Divas Champion Kaitlyn spoke with Sam Roberts about jumping through hoops to change her hair color, accidentally becoming number one contender and more.
Kaitlyn says the hair color change was something she wanted to do for a while, saying that it’s an effort to bring in a “new era of Kaitlyn”.
She admits it was “a process” to get the change approved and management was “very against” her changing her hair color due to the recognizability of the two-toned style. She says before becoming Divas Champion and having her feud with AJ Lee, she needed that recognizable hair color. Now that she’s made a name for herself, she doesn’t.
Kaitlyn also acknowledges that the accidental Battle Royal win that earned her the number one contendership to the Divas Title was “unexpected” and a “surprise”, but she credits it with kickstarting her career.
