When WWE NXT makes its debut on the WWE Network, management wants it to be viewed as a huge event. So, instead of just featuring developmental wrestlers, the company has booked Billy Gunn, Bret Hart, John Cena, Road Dogg, Shawn Michaels and Sheamus to make appearances throughout the night.
"They made it known that I wasn't one of those beautiful people. They were very transparent about that. Like, when they would have a rehearsal for one of the Lumber-jill girls matches. They would position the girls exactly where the cameras would go. The girls that they felt weren't 'The Pretty Ones', they would move them to the side. It was a clear message."
- Gail Kim revealing that WWE officials backstage did not view her as a pretty girl
"Here's the story on that. I was there as she was coming in. They knew we had worked together in TNA so they told me. 'Okay, you are going to be her first match'. Everyone knows that her first match is going to be a squash match. So she starts killing all of the girls in the ring. Then we have a house show loop and they tell me. 'Okay, you and Eve are going to get laid out'. I knew they were out to kill everything that we had done in TNA. They kept pushing off that singles match on TV and finally they said 'okay, it's going to happen'. I remember she was there and then all of a sudden she went home. She came back for a pay per view, i think it was in Seattle and she set me aside and told me 'I have to tell you something, I'm pregnant'. I told her congratulations but a part of me was also happy that it was divine intervention to save our history. I sat back said, thank you Lord."

"When fans come up to me and ask me when am I going back to the WWE...well, I just put it this way. I was made more for TNA. The way that the women are treated, the time for the matches. That's what I enjoy. I'm so much more happy in TNA."
