On what itâ<80><99>s like working WrestleMania: Iâ<80><99>ve been with WWE for 3 Â½ years. Iâ<80><99>ve been to WrestleMania, this will be my fourth year and this year is the first year that Iâ<80><99>m actually in a match. I donâ<80><99>t think it has sank in completely yet. Iâ<80><99>ve been working on different wrestling moves and stuff that I can do in the ring because I definitely want to be up to my game and up to par when Iâ<80><99>m out there doing it. It really hasnâ<80><99>t sunk in yet. I remember last year crying at the end of WrestleMania when I was watching all of the highlights, so Iâ<80><99>m sure that it will be very emotional and very, very cool.
Whether or not it was discouraging not winning the Diva Search competition: Well, Iâ<80><99>m glad now that I didnâ<80><99>t make it all of the way to the end. Because I have always been a fighter, I fight for what I believe in. It doesnâ<80><99>t matter that I placed five. I still showed my feistiness, my aggressiveness you know flipping the bird at Carmella and getting out of there. I called every single week. I wanted to be a part of the WWE, I was addicted. I was addicted to the energy from the live crowd. I was addicted to our amazing fans so it wasnâ<80><99>t discouraging at all. If anything, it was motivating.
On turning Playboy down: I was asked to do Playboy from the time that I was 19. I just wasnâ<80><99>t ready. I didnâ<80><99>t feel like it was my time. I just didnâ<80><99>t feel like it was there yet. When I became a woman and started to feel comfortable, and felt like it was everything that I wanted it to be, thatâ<80><99>s when I did it. So yeah, I had turned it down a few times. I got the advice from my family, my friends, and the people that are closest to me and decided that this year was the year to do it.
