Former TNA Knockout Velvet Sky recently spoke to Sports Illustrated’s Extra Mustard blog about possibly going to WWE, who inspired her to get into wrestling and more. You can check out the full interview here along with a few highlights below.

If she wants to go to WWE:

“That is why I sacrificed right from the beginning. That is why I left college, and the reason why I wrestled every weekend. The indie scene is not glitz and glamour, but a chance with the WWE is the reason I did this from the very beginning. I would totally embrace any opportunity with the WWE.”

Who inspired her:

“The person who really motivated me to jumpstart my wrestling career is Lita. She is very inspirational to me, and she’s done so much for the business and women in general. I was actually there the night she made her WWE debut. She captivated me with the way she moved, the way she was able to go in the ring. The guys loved her, the women loved her, and she could kick it with anybody.”

Leaving TNA: 

“Leaving TNA was best for me. I’d been there for almost ten years and I’d accomplished everything I wanted to do. My contract was coming up, and this was a business decision I made for myself. It was hard because there are so many memories there with the fans and the TNA family, but I don’t regret it. I look back on the career I had with TNA, and I’m so proud. I did what I set out to do, and I’m very proud of what I accomplished.”
