 Ring of Honor possibly going in that more theatrical direction:
"Especially with Women of Honor still being so new, we all need to establish who we are. Let the fans see us as people, as characters, as entertainers. Once they (fans) have invested in us emotionally, that is when those opportunities can present themselves."


Her view of the origins of the present Women's Revolution:
"Oh man, I understand this question but I really dislike this question and here's why. This is how I feel and maybe I'm like, "I love unicorns and rainbows", but I just feel there were so many people along the way and so many generations of female wrestling that contributed to what it is now. So for this argument where "The Knockouts did it first, well, no, WWE did it first." At the end of the day, it doesn't matter (laughs) because women's wrestling is at its highest point that it has ever been. That is the effort of so many people. It is not just a small group of women. It is the Knockouts, it is the Diva era, it was what Ring of Honor was letting its women do 10 years ago. It is this collaborative effort of all of us who banded together to make our mark in what has, historically, been a male dominated industry. And, too, to say the Knockouts or WWE started it is to take away from Mae Young. There is no Mae Young Classic without women like Mae Young. I remember being 10 years old and being captivated by a match on Monday Night RAW. It was Bull Nakano and Alundra Blayze. I don't invest a lot of thought into where it started or try to stake my claim. I'm just really happy that A. Womens wrestling is where it is now and B. That I'm still around to be a part of it!"
