Former WWE Divas Champion Kaitlyn, who was announced today as the first competitor in the Mae Young Classic, spoke with ESPN about her impending WWE return, and below are some interview highlights.
On returning for this year’s Mae Young Classic:
“The thing that got me through [as a rookie in WWE]and the thing that allowed me to achieve my level of success was my attitude, and looking back now, I am coming back with experience,” Bonin said. “I am certainly nervous because the level of competition is so much higher and there are so many different women from around the world and they bring skill levels. But it’s just so exciting.”
On her time off from WWE and returning to training:
“Since I came back, I had the opportunity to work backward and really nail down the fundamentals and the basics — things that I really lacked during my first run with the WWE,” Bonin said. “Now I am bringing these newly honed and developed skills that I have acquired recently and I am combining that with my fearless attitude. And because I don’t have this rookie vibe about me, now I can really concentrate on surprising the WWE universe with all the things I have learned.”
