Former TNA Knockouts Champion Velvet Sky was interviewed by Sports Illustrated recently. You can check out highlights below, and the full interview at this link.

How she'd do in WWE:

"I think I would do well there. The women there are killing it, and empowering and building up the women would be a great role for me. Bayley is so much fun to watch wrestle. She has so much energy and passion, and the people feel her energy and feed off that. She's so great at expressing herself, and she's so genuine."

Trying to get to WWE:

"That is why I sacrificed right from the beginning. That is why I left college, and the reason why I wrestled every weekend. The indie scene is not glitz and glamour, but a chance with the WWE is the reason I did this from the very beginning. I would totally embrace any opportunity with the WWE."

Leaving TNA:

"Leaving TNA was best for me. I'd been there for almost ten years and I'd accomplished everything I wanted to do. My contract was coming up, and this was a business decision I made for myself. It was hard because there are so many memories there with the fans and the TNA family, but I don't regret it. I look back on the career I had with TNA, and I'm so proud. I did what I set out to do, and I'm very proud of what I accomplished."
