-- Former WWE Divas Champion Jillian Hall participated in her first match since leaving WWE on June 18 at an independent show in Orlando, Florida. She reveals in an interview with Diva-Dirt.com that she was not completely ready to return to the squared circle and was nervous as a result.
"My nerves came from me not knowing if I was ready to be in a ring again," Hall explains. "When I left WWE, there was a part of me that truly thought that chapter of my life was over. I had turned down many requests to do a match before taking the Orlando show because it just didn't feel right and on top of that my body wasn't and still isn't 100%. You wouldn't think it, but it was a very emotional day for me."
She continued, "I was nervous up until the very moment I walked out that night. I wasn't sure how the people would react to me. When I walked out and turned "Jillian" up, it felt very natural like I had done it yesterday. I was literally afraid I was going to throw up when I took my first bump, but that, also, was very natural. The crowd accepted me even though I wasn't 100% and that's something I really appreciated."
