Shotzi has always been synonymous with her tank throughout her career, and while she used the tank during the start of her run on the main roster, it has gone by the wayside in recent months.
The loss of the tank has coincided with a new persona for Shotzi as she recently turned heel.
Speaking to Ryan Satin on Out of Character, Shotzi said the decision to leave the tank behind was not hers.
"That wasn't my decision, but I'm embracing the change because I've been 'the ballsy badass' my entire career, even on the Indies, I was always looked at as a babyface. It's nice after seven years later to finally change up the character and find something new within me. I think I'm finally grabbing the horns and rolling with it," she said.
Speaking about her character and how she's channeled people from her past, Shotzi said, "I'm definitely a little bit of [bitch] and very manipulative. I'm channeling a lot of people that I interacted with that I did not like and kind of picking from them."
Shotzi most recently wrestled on the June 10 episode of WWE SmackDown, losing to Ronda Rousey.
