I really feel like I’ve had a lot progress simply by working along with her and he or she’s helped me tremendously even by means of the entire story of, , at first, 26 seconds, everybody’s like, ‘Oh, your momentum’s fully gone’ and really, Becky Lynch has made me an even bigger celebrity.

So I used to be so nervous [for the obstacle course/picking up Otis]. Oh my goodness, I used to be so nervous for that entire whole impediment course. Like extra nervous than I’d have been for a WrestleMania match as a result of it’s reside TV, I’m leaping hurdles, I’m purported to be ‘The EST’. What if I journey? What do I do now? How do repair this? I can’t be ‘The EST’ anymore. I’ve to simply go away and are available again as one thing new after which having to select up Otis, I’m like, what!? Okay, I do know I’m The EST. People come to me with concepts all the time like, ‘You can do it.’ I’m like, ‘You assume I can do that?’ But it was a factor of my adrenaline was simply pumping and I’m like, I’ve to do it, I’m the strongest. This is the method that I’ve to point out that I’m the strongest, I’m new and I’m new on the scene and that was enjoyable however, Otis shouldn’t be a light-weight man [Belair laughed].

It was a lot historical past behind SummerSlam with the entire year-long construct between Becky Lynch and I and us attempting to prime our WrestleMania match was one factor after which afterwards, I’m like, okay, we did it after which when Bayley got here out and I used to be like, oouu, I heard the crowd. This is gonna get good after which IYO comes out after which Dakota comes out and it was simply — as a lot as everybody was like stunned and liked it, I felt the identical method. It’s footage of me with my facial expressions. It’s actually actually how I felt in the second. Very excited for them to come back again. Bayley and I’ve unfinished enterprise. I didn’t understand that it was gonna go the method that it’s going proper now with the three of them now teaming up on me and I needed to discover two wonderful companions, Asuka and Alexa [Bliss] and we’ll see what occurs.

If I may put collectively a secure with the girls’s division now we have now, it’s tough as a result of now we have so many wonderful girls however I feel I’d have the ‘strongEST’ secure with me, Rhea Ripley and Raquel [Rodriguez]. Who can take that down, proper? Who can take that down?
