“I was blown away by what they put on. I was so involved in the cheerleading industry for so long, and I never really looked into anything other than cheerleading. But when I went to SummerSlam, it really just opened my eyes to the athleticism and the dedication the athletes bring into the ring.”
Gabi Butler spent time with WWE co-CEO Stephanie McMahon during her visit to SummerSlam. She revealed that that the billion dollar princess inspired her to venture into the world of pro wrestling.
