"Just watching the likes of, specifically Lita, do what she did in the ring when she made her debut, what she brought to the table for women's wrestling, she really raised the bar. As soon as I saw her, I was an immediate fan. And I knew who she was from before when she was in ECW, but they didn't really let her wrestle. When she came, when she crossed over, when she made her debut and I just saw her move around the ring, she appeals to the guys, she appeals to the girls, I was just like wow. This chick is cool. I want to do what she does."
