- In an interview with, Madison Rayne commented on getting a WWE opportunity via the Mae Young Classic:

“I cried,” said Rayne. “I turned into such a crier the last couple of years. I don’t know if it’s because I’m a mother, but I cried and cried. It just feels really good after 13 years of really hard work and trying to find out who exactly I wanted to be in the ring and figure out exactly what I wanted my career to look like and what story I wanted to tell. I feel like, after everything I’ve done, not to say this is the ending point, but this is such an awesome later chapter in the story of my career.”

“That’s 100 percent my hope. That’s 100 percent my goal,” said Rayne. “That’s what I’m training for and mentally preparing myself for because I think if you don’t go into something like this prepared to make it to the finals and to win the finals and watch your career take off in an entirely new direction, then you’re short-changing yourself.”
