I want everyone to know that they can accomplish anything they want at any age if they just be themselves. I want to encourage millions to chase their dreams and to never change. Everyone should also know how to throw a good right hook!
Cheesecake and cookies is something I can't stay away from.
I grew up watching Bull Nakano, and she was amazing.
Any time I have a promo with him - and I like R-Truth, too - but I always have the best chemistry with Miz. We really don't stay on script perfectly. We kind of bounce off each other... He is the one I paid attention to when it came to promos. He helped me so much along the way with backstage segments.
I always sing Amy Winehouse's 'Valerie,' but also Kings Of Leon's 'Use Somebody.'
My sister wrestles. Both of my brothers are wrestlers, and my nieces and nephews all plan to wrestle.
People who are not in the wrestling business don't understand the struggles that all of us have to go through to really try to make it.
I feel much better being in a heel role. I'm not very good at coming out smiling and acting like a good girl. It's harder to get fans to like you when you're trying to be nice.
The great thing about WWE is the fact they are branching out and doing more brands. Having this just creates more opportunities for everybody, and I just want them all to get a chance. Especially in England. I know we have a lot of British superstars, but it's still a lot harder for Brits to come over here in America.
WWE is like a big family, and you don't realise that until you step away from it and come back.
People are very surprised when they see me. Here is this crazy Gothic woman, but when they speak to me in person, they realize I'm a nice girl. I love to interact with my fans.
I was born into the business, literally. My mum was seven months pregnant with me before she realized it, so she kept wrestling like normal up to that point.
When I was in England, I did a lot of wrestling and moves. Over here, they were like, 'You don't need to do that much. Save your body. Become an entertainer rather than a wrestler.' And I wasn't used to wrestling on TV and in front of huge crowds, so it was a big adjustment.
Emma gave me some of my favorite matches - the NXT Women's Tournament and then NXT ArRIVAL.
My mom, she's just a baller in the ring. My scrappy side and my aggressiveness are probably coming from her.
I couldn't really get a grasp on wrestling at a young age. I knew it was what my parents did, and they fought people. It scared the crap out of me, so I thought, 'No, I can't do that. I'll get beaten up!'
When I got a little older, like, 10 or 11, my dad would run a training school every month, teaching people how to become wrestlers. I would get in the ring now and again and mess around with one of my brothers, and he'd teach me some stuff.
I always really enjoyed Edge's entrance theme. Also Stone Cold. WWE once asked me in an interview, if I had to change my entrance music, whose would I choose, and I said Edge. So they created a video of me using that song, and I was like, 'I'm in love.'
To be the first NXT Women's Champion is such an honor.
I would love to have a Divas Hardcore championship. If we had a hardcore cage, we'll just paint the cage pink or something and make it extra girly so it's so, like, Diva.
