“Yeah, those people that doubted me throughout the entire journey. I had school teachers who laughed in my face when I wanted to do projects on WWE and wrestling. People judged me for wanting to try out for Riot City Wrestling, the independent scene in Australia where I began my wrestling career. Even when I laid out my plan to dedicate myself to the craft and make it to WWE, there were constant voices saying, ‘You should find a real job. You should study. You should do something else. You’re never gonna make it. It’s a silly dream. You have to be more realistic about your life.’

”The one thing I have to say to that is, ‘Where are you guys now?’ I’m here, living my dream. I worked hard for this dream, and they’re miserable in their little, crappy lives. So yeah, sue me.”

The Women’s Champion is set to defend her title against Nia Jax in a singles match at Elimination Chamber 2024, taking place at Optus Stadium in Perth, Australia. It remains to be seen how she will fare in the bout.
