"It's been 4.5 years since I was standing inside a WWE ring," Kaitlyn said. "Seeing how far the women have come in just the time since I've left is just an amazing feeling and I'm so proud just to be a part of it because things were way different when I started with WWE 8 years ago. It's incredible, just the evolution of the women and women's wrestling, so I'm just proud to be here."
Kaitlyn also said she didn't know she would be the first 2018 MYC participant announced and she did not expect the overwhelming warm welcome from fans on social media. She said she believes she has what it takes and is going back to the basics but also has added to her in-ring arsenal. Kaitlyn said, "I really just think I have experience on my side, and a lot of heart."
