Schade um sie! Sie ist/ war echt eine erstklassige Wrestlerin. Sie wusste am Mikro, sowie auch im Ring total zu überzeugen. Aber vielleicht ist es so besser für sie. Sie ist ja auch nicht mehr die Jüngste. Obwohl ich sie gerne noch mal für ein gutes Match bei WWE gesehen hätte, bevor sie ihre Stiefel an den Nagel hängt.
