How her relationship with Austin Aries started:
"We had a talent meeting [in TNA]. I'll never forget this because I wanted to punch him in the face, but we were having a talent meeting and I was talking to Bubba [Ray] Dudley. I was finishing my last sentence, and right when the meeting was starting, I hear somebody shush from behind me. And he was like, 'shhhh.' And I was like, 'Who the [heck] is shushing me?!' I was like, what? I don't know what it is. You can tell me like, hey, settle down. But when you shush me? For some reason that's like [shut up] in my ears. So, right away, I turned around with this anger, and I was like [to Austin], 'Who the [heck] are you to be shushing me?!' And he's like, 'Oh. I'm just kidding. The meeting is about to start and I was just messing with you.' And I was like, okay, okay. Whatever. I'll mess with him later. And then, he had a really great match… and we just started talking after that, and everything just kinda happened. But it all started from a shush."
Her NXT match against Asuka:
"Up until I was standing in the ring with the cameras on, that's when I started to believe the gravity of the situation. I was surprised that I wasn't very nervous, because I think it didn't click yet. And then as soon as I got there, it was like, nervous. Because I love Asuka. Her work is amazing. It was such an honor to be in the ring with her, and she's an incredible person, so it was like a home vibe, because I had Sarita there as the producer, I had Austin Aries there with me, and then Terry Taylor, who actually was the one who hired me in TNA. It just felt like a good family vibe. I felt like I was supposed to be there. It was amazing."
