Velvet Sky

Former TNA Knockout Velvet Sky recently spoke with Sports Illustrated’s Extra Mustard blog. The full interview is at this link. Below are highlights:

Leaving TNA:

“That was the most emotional night of my career. As soon as I lost the match, there was so much support from the crowd that it was overwhelming. Then the entire locker room was waiting for me in the back, and I wasn’t expecting that. Everybody was crying and hugging me, and the entire night was very emotional. I’m very happy I went out on a positive note and that I got to say ‘Thank you’ to the fans of the Impact Zone. I have the best fans in the world. It’s so rewarding and so humbling that people are excited to see what is next to come in my life.”

Dating Bubba Ray Dudley:

“I am so grateful to have Mark in my life. We talk about wrestling a lot together and he has an amazing mind for the business, but he is also an incredible person. He’s very supportive of me and so inspiring. He is so motivating and helps me believe in myself.”

Possibly working WWE NXT:

“I think I would do well there. The women there are killing it, and empowering and building up the women would be a great role for me. Bayley is so much fun to watch wrestle. She has so much energy and passion, and the people feel her energy and feed off that. She’s so great at expressing herself, and she’s so genuine. Nattie Neidhart is also someone I’d love to work with. I’ve known her for a long time, and she is someone that I look up to and respect. She’s someone I’d love to learn even more from.”

“I am so proud of the guys like Samoa Joe, AJ Styles, Eric Young, Austin Aries and Bobby Roode. I traveled all over the globe with them in TNA, so to see them excel on the level they’re at now, I’m so happy for them. You’re never fully satisfied or fulfilled in wrestling until you get to the big leagues. Nobody gets in this business just to bump. I’ve never stopped learning, so I’m glad I have not worked there yet. All I ever wanted in the business was a chance, an opportunity. If I get that with WWE, I’ll give so much.”
