Sasha recalled the time she left the company after losing the Women’s Tag Team titles and said that she had lost all her love for wrestling, despite it being the only thing she knows.
“I lost all the love I had for wrestling”
The former Women’s Champion went on to claim that wrestling had broken her spirit and it made her question who she was as a person:
“[Wrestling] really broke me, It broke my spirit and made me question my mind. It made me question who I was as a person, and the path that I was going scared me so I’m very proud in myself that I took that step to walk away from something that I love very much.”
The former NXT Star went on to say that she spent the last few months discovering herself and realising what made her happy.
She also talked about her return and said that coming back now after having the time off means that she is coming back better than ever because now she knows who she is.
