H.B.I.C.: "I think she is one of the most powerful women in wrestling, to this day, is Stephanie McMahon -- and I don't mean what y'all think I mean. On TV, she is just one of the most powerful characters. From playing 'The Queen b---h,' to the 'Billion Dollar Princess,' to even coming out not too long ago to give it to Paul Heyman."
Boss Lady: "She's awesome in every possible way. From mic work to bumping -- I remember her taking the DDT off the top ropes from Randy Orton, oh, my gosh! From her facials to everything... she is just great, and she's great to work for. She's a great boss: creative, always wants you to do your best, always there to offer advice -- honest advice, which is sometimes rare to find. She shoots from the hip, which I just love. Why beat around the bush? She's also very hands-on when she's at the shows. Can't say enough positive things about Steph."
The Real Legacy: "Of course, she's so powerful. And if you're a true fan of the business, obviously you know the legacy is there. She can be intimidating, not intentionally by any means, but I was intimidated because of the amount of respect I had for her and for her family."
Pulled Aside: "I do remember during one pre-tape, it was with a few of the girls, and I remember her saying: 'Michelle, come into the bathroom real quick, I need to tell you something.' I'm thinking: 'Oh, no. She doesn't wanna embarrass me about how horrible I am in front of other people -- which is nice, but she's still about to tell me gosh knows what. So we go in there and she's like: 'I think you need to shave your armpits.' I raise them up, and I'm like: 'No, I shave my armpits every day!' So when I raise them up, I've got black fuzz from my sweatshirt, but she was calling me in there to tell me. Stuff like that, she's just funny."
The Future Unfolds: "She can give good direction and really help your character grow. I don't know if there are many people that I enjoy watching on TV than her. You can hate her on TV but absolutely love her backstage. I think she's and such a strong woman... and that's the type of person that I look up to, the type of person that I admire. I think as long as she's there behind-the-scenes, the business will continue to do nothing but grow. I love her as a person, and I am very, extremely, fortunate to call her a friend."
