Interview highlights courtesy of The Mayhem’s official correspondent, Paterson From New Jersey:

The lasting legacy of WrestleMania to her/challenging Victoria for the WWE Women’s Championship at WrestleMania XX in New York City in one of ‘Manias most memorable matches/storylines ("Hair vs. Title"): "For me, WrestleMania XX was definitely the highlight of my career. I mean once you have your head shaved at Madison Square Garden, where do you go from there? So for me, that was definitely the peak of my career."

The rumors of the forthcoming WWE Divas DVD release (and her potential involvement in the project): "I don’t know. They (the WWE) own the rights to my name & likeness, so whatever they wanted to do with my footage & stuff, they could do. My guess is in Trish’s (Stratus) segment, I will be the one getting pantsed a lot, so I’m sure I’ll be on there."

Addressing comments in Jim Ross’ recent blog about the current state of women’s wrestling today. What is lacking in women’s wrestling that has prevented it from becoming legitimate, and will we ever see a women’s match headline a Pay-Per-View?: "I remember there was some mixed tags as a main event with Lita & Trish, and it was fantastic those girls got to be in the main event in a mixed tag. As far as them headlining a show, personally I have never met a girl as talented, charismatic, & athletic as people like The Rock, Triple H, or ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin. I’ve seen a lot of talented girl wrestlers, but none that had as much talent as the men in my opinion."

How viable can Wrestlicious be in the world of professional wrestling: "The reason I think it (Wrestlicious) might work is there is so much serious drama on TV, and to have something totally ridiculous just might be a change of pace for people to escape their realities. It would great if it succeeded, and it could be one of those things like G.L.O.W., where there was just this sub-culture that was so drawn to it and was this thing that people talked about for years to come."

If the time will come for "Molly Holly" to be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame: "I could not shine the shoes of those ladies in the Hall Of Fame now (The Fabulous Moolah, Mae Young, "Sensational" Sherri Martel, along with Wendi Richter). I don’t ever see myself being in the Hall Of Fame. Although I had a great career, I’m nowhere as talented & amazing as those ladies. I totally respect them, and I’m sure Trish, Lita, Chyna, & other girls did way more for the business than I did will hopefully be in the Hall Of Fame."

Her thoughts on the return of the "Monday Night Wars" between the WWE & TNA: "I think that’s exciting as far as wouldn’t it be great if we could regenerate those ‘Monday Night Wars?’ I was in WCW when those wars first started, and I remember sitting in Eric Bischoff’s office watching Y2J (Chris Jericho) debut on RAW, and it was fun. So I think hopefully it’ll generate some interest. I think it’s gonna be a good thing for everybody, and I’m excited to see what happens."
