During the latest recording of The Sessions with Renee Paquette, All Elite Wrestling's own Marina Shafir reflected on her time with NXT, and explained the reason why she feels she "never got a proper introduction" into WWE.
Check out an excerpt from the interview below:
“I felt like I never got a proper introduction. Like, the photos when you got signed to NXT with Triple H, where he’s shaking the hand, I never got that photo. And that just sat with me. I wanted that fucking photo. That meant a lot to me. But we had to kind of play it cool, and I was like ‘Fuck that, I want that photo.’ I thought that shit was going on for me, that I was going to have that chance. I just wanted to have a good match, get back there, and be like ‘I’m getting this fucking photo.’ And I never got it, and it’s fine, but that didn’t sit well with me. And then I realized I underestimated myself. I’m my own worst enemy when it comes to that shit. Maybe that’s what needed to happen, and I needed to go away and I needed to mold myself.”
