Fast forward to present day and WWE recently wrapped up their first-ever all-women's PPV 'Evolution' that the women of WWE fought to have. Stephanie did an interview with 'The National's' sports section to discuss the meaning of Evolution and as the interview rolled on, Stephanie spoke about her return to in-ring competition at WrestleMania and revealed the reactions that her children had to the match.

"In terms of working with Ronda, my kids came down to watch me train in the Performance Center with Ronda. They watched us go through the match and Ronda got in the ring with them and she was great. She really is a wonderful person and she got in the ring with them and worked them over a little bit and then it was really cute." Stephanie shared. "I was with my kids and it was the day before WrestleMania. It was my two little ones. My oldest one understands it more. I said 'OK guys, this is how the match is going to end. Ronda Rousey is going to break my arm, but she is not really going to break my arm' and they weren’t getting it. So I said, 'Mummy’s going to lie down on the floor' and I put my arm up in the air and I said, 'OK Murphy I want you to grab my arm and push it back like this'. As soon as she touched my arm I went like this and reacted [like] she had really hurt me, and then I was Murphy, 'I’m OK, that is what I am showing you, it is all in the reaction'. I then asked her to do the same thing and I didn’t react and I was able to say, 'See, you’re not hurting me', and then my youngest was like, ‘Let me try, let me try'. It was their aha moment and they were no longer worried. But mummy going through the table from the year before that was harder to explain. My 10 year old explained it as the stunt table. 'That’s the stunt table, right momma?' they asked."
