Personal History: (In her own words) “When I first got into wrestling I was just 15 years old and I was bright-eyed and excited because one day I would be the best in the world. I knew it. Seven years later I’ve been all over the world. I’ve wrestled my heroes and I’ve beat the best. I can look myself in the mirror and say “I have become the best in the world.”

But no matter what I do, no matter who I beat, there’s always something in my head that says to me I’m not good enough, that it wasn’t good enough. It was never quite perfect.

And for seven years, I’ve never gone to a dance or a party or a birthday or a wedding because I thought that maybe that one show that I was going to miss to do something important in my life would be the one show where everything might have finally come together, where I might actually be able to sleep at night. And I’ve just pissed away friendships and thrown away relationships because wrestling was the only thing that was ever important to me. I didn’t care if my jaw was sticking out of my face or my back was broken because I needed to wrestle that night to see if it was finally the night when everything would go perfect.

I used to think that I was afraid. Then I realized there’s nothing that you can do to me that I haven’t already done to myself."
