"I actually filled out the recruit page, because you always hear, "Hey, fill out the recruit page," and I got a call asking if I would be interested in wrestling a match at NXT! So, of course, I said yes. [Laughs] I ended up getting called, and the name Blue Pants actually came about [when] I was stretching near the ring. At that point I was told I was going to wrestle Carmella, and Enzo & Cass were brainstorming an [intro] just off the top of their heads. They were like, "Maybe we should call her out, the girl with the blue pants." I laughed about that, I just thought it was really funny. I went, "Absolutely! Do that!" I was just wearing the pants to roll around in, I wasn't sure I was going to actually wrestle in that outfit. I have a crazy amount of costumes. I always over-pack so I have hundreds of things with me. I just put the blue pants on real quick to roll around in the ring, stretch, kind of get comfortable and it just stuck … that's how Blue Pants was born, and I just embraced it!"
She also commented on what Triple H said to her after her first few matches:
"The first time I came back he said, "You got a Blue Pants chant. I don't even. I can't," and then he started laughing. I shook his hand and said, "Well, thank you for everything, I really appreciate this opportunity." He said, "You're welcome," and then he just started laughing at my blue pants! That was kind of a really awesome moment for me, to make Triple H laugh."
