While conversing with Milwaukee Record, she spoke about the experience of working at the home of the NBA Champion Milwaukee Bucks, and how it was to make the shift between arenas.

She revealed that one of the things a superstar from NXT looks forward to when moving to Raw or SmackDown is the experience of the large crowd. Therefore, to not have that was shocking, but it still was thrilling to perform on the big stage.

“It’s a wider audience, it’s a larger audience, you’re on the actual big stage so to have that expectation to then go to Raw and debut with no fans, it was a little shocking for me. You know, for us to go back on the road and actually have our fans back, it’s been amazing. For me, it wasn’t really overwhelming. I was just super excited for it and I embraced it all. It’s a very big difference.”

“I think the biggest difference for me is just knowing that in my mind I feel like everything starts over. I did some amazing things at NXT, but on Raw and SmackDown there is a larger audience and you’re reintroducing yourself. The crowd is bigger, the crowd is larger, it’s more energetic, and it’s more energy. It’s been a great ride so far and I’m just embracing everything that’s coming along the way.”
