On how she met her husband,  WWE Superstar Cedric Alexander:

 I met Cedric on a whim...My friend Robin was like, “Hey can you take me to my show, I’ll give you gas money.” And I said, “Sure, of course!” He didn’t tell me the show was three hours away!... He didn’t know how to drive a stick shift, so of course, I was driving the whole three and a half hours! I was hot! So I had on my little scrubs, and my Marvin the Martian hat, looking bummy, and I saw this dude walk by, and I was like, “Oh man! Robin, You didn’t tell me he was gonna be here!” And he was like, “Nah, stay away from him, that’s my boy, Cedric!” And I was like, “Well, I need to holla at your boy!”...Of course, at the time, I was looking kinda rough. But still, he was like, “Oh, you know, she’s cute!”...To fast forward, we moved in within 7, 8, 9 months of knowing each other. It was quick, like that love at first sight type of stuff...And now, we’re married, six years and some change later!    

On what it’s like to be married to another pro wrestler and being a parent:

It’s actually pretty amazing, because since I’m still on the Indies, I’m only gone usually on the weekends, and he usually is only gone during the weekdays...So I get to see him a couple times throughout the week, and on the weekends when he only does house shows and I don’t have shows -- it kind of works itself out. Especially with having our daughter, Odessa. It gets a little challenging, but she’s smart enough to understand.


On how positions she held prior to wrestling (Served in the Military, Worked at GameStop) have influenced her wrestling: Being in the Air Force has taught me a lot as far as putting my character behind me and being quiet...before...I said what was on my mind completely, but I went into a male dominant field. I was a fire truck mechanic, and there were a whole lot of men, and maybe three or four women...That has taught me to calm down a little bit. And working at GameStop...that’s helped me with marketing, a lot -- knowing advertising and knowing exactly what the trends’s taught me a lot as far as making friends as well…

Any talks with the WWE/Impact/Mae Young? A lot of talks. I mean, nothing that I can divulge into at this moment -- but, we’ve had discussions as far as like, what would happen if I just so happened to be signed with anywhere as far as scheduling because you know, our daughter will come first in everything...It’s already hard enough on her not seeing her father enough...This is my dream -- however, my child is number one.
