To be honest I never thought she’d leave. And so abruptly at that. But it was her decision. She did all she dreamed about. She wrestled at Wrestlemania (and won both). She was not only a 3 time Divas Champion but was the longest reigning divas champion and nobody will probably come close to her reign for a long time. She was the most popular diva the WWE had seen since Mickie and Melina. She was one of the first divas in a long while to get merchandise.
She touched so many lives and told so many people that no matter where you come from you can do whatever you want to do if you had passion. She represented every single woman who came from nothing and EARNED a contract.
She is one of the most influential people I’ve ever seen and I will support her in whatever she does.
“I didn’t get here because I was cute, or because I came from some famous wrestling family, or because I ‘sucked’ up to the right people. I got here because I am good. I earned this championship. No matter how many red carpets you guys want to walk, in your four-thousand dollar ridiculous heels, you will never be able to lace up my Chuck Taylor’s. You are all worthless excuses for women, and you will never be able to touch me. And that is reality.”
