Being a TNA Knockout: "It's an honor to work with TNA and to be a Knockout. It's a great opportunity."
Participating in Gut Check: "I'm just really grateful that I had the opportunity to participate in the [TNA] Gut Check. That put me on the radar -- to get me out there and get known. It was the perfect opportunity for me and the right moment for me to be in front of the right people. For TNA to give me the opportunity to be with them and to grow as a wrestler and as an entertainer, I'm really honored and thankful."
Working with Gail Kim: "It's an honor to work with Gail Kim and I'm so glad I have the opportunity to be doing what we're doing right now. She's a great teacher to me. She's helping me to keep growing and giving me advice. She's a phenomenal athlete and a great, great talent. Before I started wrestling, I would watch her on TV to see how she works. Not only is she a beautiful woman, she's a strong woman. I always believe that being a woman stands for something, and when I look at her, that's what I see."
Tapa also discussed her athleticism, growing up a wrestling fan, getting into wrestling and more, you can read the full interview at this link.
