Jericho responded to Shotzi’s GIF by stating the following during a live stream…
There’s a couple of chicks in WWE who said some stuff and they should probably not have said that. They probably weren’t trained any better, and in 6 months they’ll probably be asking us for a job anyways and I’ll remember that, so we’ll leave it at that.
In an interview with Alex McCarthy of TalkSport.com, Shotzi said the following about the spoof…
I meant no offense to Chris Jericho. I thought, honestly, the match was great. But, you know what… like, take a joke, Take a joke, bud! [laughs]. It’s just a GIF,” she stated. “Laugh at it and move on. It’s live TV. Things happen, it’s pro wrestling. Don’t take life too seriously is all I have to say.
In the interview, Shotzi also said that she found out about her main roster call-up on the same day that her and Tegan Nox debuted on Smackdown.

Shotzi and Nox are the hottest new tag team on SmackDown right now after making their debut a few weeks ago. In NXT, Shotzi Blackheart had a successful run with Ember Moon in a team while Tegan Nox has been on the verge of breaking out big in WWE for a while, but injuries have always gotten in the way.
