Madison Rayne spoke with Brian Fritz of The Sporting News this week to promote tonight's ROH: Final Battle 2018 pay-per-view at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York. Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On the reason why she signed a contract with Ring Of Honor: "They believe in me and I believe in them. There’s life outside of wrestling and that’s always been a motivating factor for me. I’ve been able to live this dream, travel the world, but never be gone so much that I can’t fulfill all of my other dreams of being a mom and a wife and a personal trainer and going back to school. For me, it’s the better fit that allows me that freedom with my schedule. My hope in signing this contract with Ring of Honor is to write another successful chapter for myself, but also I hope in some small way, that I can help grow Women of Honor and make it what it could be and what it’s on track to being."
On breaking out of the comfort zone that Impact Wrestling was for her: "It was uncomfortable in a good way. I had the tryout at the WWE Performance Center and that felt way different than anything I had ever done at Impact. I got back out on the indie scene a bit more. I was with Ring of Honor. I went back to Shimmer and all of those places felt good, but it was just different. It’s like the difference in being a freshman in high school to a senior."
