Scarlett Bordeaux is a little bit envious of the women in NXT 2.0.
Scarlett joined NXT in 2019 alongside Karrion Kross though they wouldn't debut until the following year. Scarlett served as Kross' manager during his time in NXT. When he was called up to Raw, she was inexplicably not by his side and wouldn't appear on TV again prior to their releases on November 4, 2021.
In September 2021, NXT was revamped and rebranded as NXT 2.0. Speaking to Renee Paquette on Oral Sessions, Scarlett shared that she is somewhat jealous that the women of NXT 2.0 are allowed to dress and act "a little bit sexier" than when she was there.
"The one thing I'm a little bit envious of is the girls now are allowed to be a little bit more sexy. That's the new thing with NXT 2.0. I had to scale it back. Even with clothes that would be really low cut and they'd look at me before going out and be like, 'you need a little mesh there.' 'Okay, let me go fix that.' I'd put on some mesh and pull down the shorts a little. Now, I don't think they have that rule anymore, so I'm a little jealous of that. It's fun to dress sexy and look sexy when no one is telling you to do it. If someone is trying to force you and telling you to take your clothes off, I would be like, 'Hell no,' but when it's me choosing my outfits and doing that stuff, it's super fun and cool for me," she said.
Kross who was also present for the interview named Joe Gacy and Bron Breakker as two new talents he likes, while Scarlett enjoys Xyon Quinn, Gigi Dolin. That said, they still prefer the "grungy" NXT.
Elsewhere during the discussion, Scarlett said that she wasn't medically cleared to compete at the end of her WWE run. Learn more here.
