Kaitlyn had taken a break from wrestling after being released from WWE in 2014, but she returned to ring earlier this year, and since then the company has brought her back to work the second annual Mae Young Classic tournament.
During a recent interview with ESPN, the former Diva’s Champion talked about a lot of things including her days in NXT, how things have changed since then and more.
When asked about being part of Mae Young Classic and if this can serve as a springboard for her career, the former Champion said that she does see herself going through the NXT route to the main roster again:
“Now that I’ve been there and done it, the stakes are higher, the level of competition is higher, so I see myself just going through it, going through the Mae Young Classic, going through NXT, going through the SmackDown roster, going through the Raw roster. I know I’m capable of it, and I think the Mae Young Classic is just the beginning.”
Kaitlyn won the third season of NXT back when it was still a reality show and was rewarded a WWE contract. Her run lasted till July 2014 after which she took a break from wrestling.
She returned to ring earlier this year and started competing in the independent circuit. In July this year, WWE announced that she will be returning to the company to compete at the Mae Young Classic.
