On When She’s Not Scheduled for iMPACT Wrestling
It’s probably better that if I’m not being used that I’m home, because I’m paying to be on the road — we pay for our own hotels, rental cars, food and stuff like that. I don’t want to be there and not be utilized, spend money out of my pocket for not working. If I’m off, I have three dogs, I have a family, I’m opening a restaurant in three months here in Chicago. I’ve got a lot going on.
On Leaving WWE on Her Own Accord
When I retired from WWE, I thought I was done with wrestling, I really was. But I still loved it, man, I still really loved it. TNA came at a perfect time. ‘I can’t do that travel anymore.’ They’re like, ‘It’s only five shows a month.’ ‘Really? That’s it? I can do that.’
On Tyson Tomko’s Recent Problems
You’re never mentally prepared for when you’re let go. You’re always released or fired when you’re not expecting it. I thought I was going to go through depression, but I left on my own terms. I had two more years in WWE, and asked for my out. I was prepared for it, so I didn’t go through that. I was nervous about it. I’m like, ‘Wow, when is this depression going to set in?’ I was ready to take it on. It didn’t happen to me.
