On her role models in WWE:
“I love The Miz! I absolutely love him. “He’s so snarky, and that’s who I want to be. I want to have cool comebacks and get people to listen to me and be invested in me. Even CM Punk — when he spoke, everyone listened.”
On dealing with criticism:
“My whole life I’ve had people telling me that I look like a man, I’m not feminine, I’m too masculine, all that stuff. Well, you know what? I could not give a shit. Just like I was inspired by [former WWE champion] Beth Phoenix, who also looks very masculine, I want to inspire other potential female athletes to go as hard as they want and feel comfortable in their own skin — that’s why I go out there day after day and do my thing.”
