Jazz wants WWE to celebrate her flowers while she is alive.
Jazz was a huge part of WWE's women's division during the Ruthless Aggression era. She was even featured in a women's championship match at WrestleMania 18 against Trish Stratus and Lita, arguably the two most synonymous women with WWE during their most lucrative time.
Recently appearing on The Angle Podcast, Jazz revealed that she isn't sure if WWE is interested in inducting her in the Hall of Fame but if they are, she wants them to do it while she is alive.
“Me being a Hall of Famer for WWE, I don’t know. I mean I don’t know if that will ever happen. I just want to say this. If it’s ever going to happen, do it while I’m alive. Don’t wait until I’m dead and gone. I would like to be there and share that moment with my kids. Don’t bring my kids up on the stage with tears in their eyes wishing their mom was there to receive this. Give me my flowers while I live. Don’t let me die and be forgotten about and then oh yea here. If it were to happen, I would love to be inducted by Paul Heyman.”
Jazz recently had a retirement match against Deonna Purrazzo. Speaking about Deonna's work, Jazz said she is one of the best in the business and was honored to pass the torch.
“There was no timetable [for her IMPACT run] and it went longer than what I thought. I wasn’t expecting a 4,5, or 6-month run. I was thinking maybe 3 appearances or something and bam they took me out real quick, but they hung in there with me. I’m so grateful for it. I knew myself that I was not the Jazz that everyone was used to seeing and I was a little stressed out thinking about how the fans would react. I’ve had a great career! And that’s just my in-ring performance that I’m retired from. Behind the scenes I’m still going strong!
“I was excited about it. I love Deonna’s work. She is one of the best out here right now. If there’s someone that I’m passing the torch onto it couldn’t have been a better person than Deonna. She’s so well deserving of that. She’s a great champion and has a great mind for the business. She loves the business. I love everything about her.”
Recently, Jazz confirmed that she would be working as an agent for NWA. Learn more here.
