On how professional wrestling brought an escape from her personal life:

“I was just bullied really bad in school, and my only escape was to turn on WWE SmackDown or Raw. Just go into a different world and see all of these larger than life characters defending their ideals. Not afraid to defend themselves and stick up for what they believed in.”

On what it means to wrestle on Raw in her hometown in Dallas:

“I wrestled all around here on the independent circuit. It’s really cool to be able to come in and be like — man, I made it. My hometown, my family, my friends, everyone sees all the hard work and dedication I put in, and it’s the biggest payoff of just everything so far.”

On wanting to be a professional soccer player:

“Before I got to high school, I played [soccer] on a competition team for years. That’s the only thing I ever really wanted to do until wrestling came into my life. But really, middle school, it was all about soccer for me. It was all about trying to go over to the U.K. and play on a club team there for like Liverpool or Man City.”

On marrying a fellow wrestler, Matthew Palmer:

“It’s awesome to have him as a professional wrestler because we just bounce [ideas] back and forth. He knows the lifestyle. He knows everything that I deal with and he gives me advice. It’s nice to come home and have someone that understands everything that I go through — the good, the bad, the ugly, the awesome, and the perfect. He’s my better half.”
