Tiffany Stratton made her way to NXT back in 2021 and instantly made a big splash in her debut. In the time since her debut, Stratton gradually improved her in-ring skills and character prowess. Now it appears Stratton found it very difficult to adjust to WWE’s schedule.

NXT’s resident Buff Barbie is certainly never lacking in the confidence department and this was a gradual work in progress, as Tiffany Stratton had to work hard to get where she is in NXT.

Tiffany Stratton was the only woman among the group of recruits at the Performance Center during August 2021 and she certainly had a lot to prove to everyone. Naturally, there were a lot of expectations from the young WWE Superstar as well.

While speaking on Busted Open Radio, Tiffany Stratton opened up about her life in the WWE Performance Center. The young NXT Superstar admitted that she had a very hard time adjusting to the Performance Center’s punishing schedule.


The schedule is definitely very hard to get accustomed to. It was nothing like any other. Luckily, I had a little bit of wrestling experience and I was taught how to act, like the basic wrestling rules, so I knew what I was getting myself into.

When you’re newer, you have a little bit of a crazier schedule. You’re training, I think like four times a week. It’s only four times because Tuesdays we have TV. Sometimes they would make you come in on Tuesdays and have a training session.

Training started at 8:30 AM and we’d go until 1030 or 1130. Let me tell you, bumping that early in the morning sucks.

After that, we would go to gym class where we’d lift. After that we would do a promo class or like an acting class, something along those terms and it was every day.

When you’re newer, it’s kind of a mandatory thing, like an unwritten rule that you have to go to open ring and you have to keep on working.”

Tiffany Stratton also doesn’t want to be called up to the WWE main roster just yet. Tiffany Stratton is set to face off against Roxanne Perez and Indi Hartwell for the NXT Women’s Champion at NXT Spring Breakin’ on April 25th. It remains to be seen whether Stratton’s hard work will pay off and she will become the new NXT Women’s Champion.
