You can check out some highlights from the interview below:


On how her WWE return came about: “It was flattering (for Triple H to ask for me to come back), and it was honestly shocking, because this time a year ago, I would have never in a million years thought that I would be back. Triple H has always been super supportive, and he was always this way, even when I was at NXT with him. He always listened, and he took the time out to make sure that we were OK. I’ve always felt comfortable and secure with him. So, when he came back and was in charge, and he reached out like, ‘What do you think about coming back?’”

On how Impact Wrestling management was supportive in her decision to return to WWE: “I was still with IMPACT at the time, but I was just trying to decide what to do next, because I was on a short-term deal. My main goal in wrestling was to be able to take care of my family and make sure that my mom was OK. And in talking to Gail Kim and Scott D’Amore about it, I was like, ‘Listen, I need to do what I have to do to make sure that my mom is good. She’s about to retire. She lives by herself. I got to make sure she’s good.’ They were super supportive about it. And that was the deciding factor, was the fact that they were comfortable with it. Hunter, like I’m super comfortable with him, so it was it was an easy decision. And, of course, my husband (Keith Lee) was super supportive of what I chose.”
