LeRae has worked closely with Michaels in NXT and paid tribute to him with her gear on the April 8, 2020 episode of NXT when she competed in a ladder match.

LeRae has said in past interviews that, growing up, she always wanted to be Randy Savage and not Miss Elizabeth. She elaborated on her comments by saying, "I adored Miss Elizabeth as a child. There was just something about the physicality, in-ring, that left me in awe when I watch wrestling. It's why I fell in love with wrestling, the wrestling part of it. I saw Randy Savage and I wanted that, so badly. I fell in love with him and the presence he had in the ring. 'That's everything I want to be one day.' That presence, I want to be halfway as good as he is, I'd be totally pumped about. It's special. That feeling he made me feel while watching, I loved it."

LeRae is set to compete in an Elimination Chamber Qualifying Match on Monday's WWE Raw against Michin, Carmella, and Piper Niven.

Fightful will have live coverage of WWE Raw beginning at 8 p.m. ET on Monday.
