I consider myself Russian-American because I’m American by ethnicity and by passport, but I spent all my forming years over in the former Soviet Union in a Russian school. I never went to an American school. There was a lot of culture shock when I moved back to the States when I was 17.
I was notorious at NXT for having constant pitches and ideas. I was that girl who would come in every day to Dusty Rhodes with a 10-page pitch for characters and posters of character development.

I can promise you this: I will be the greatest woman to ever enter WWE, and I will leave the greatest legacy that WWE has ever seen.

There is nothing more than the world to me than performing in front of the WWE Universe. So I would like to do it as long as I can. As long as they will have me.
I know I can fight. I know I have kicks that can destroy people. Just because I haven’t gotten in the ring in my career, that doesn’t mean I’m not capable of crushing people.

Lana is 100 percent an extension of me, but just one side of me. I feel that’s what I get really excited about because on ‘Total Divas,’ you are going to see other sides of me.
When I look at Stephanie McMahon’s entire career, I’m always blown away at how she just moves your soul. Literally, my heart is moved by her. Either I hate her or love her – or love to hate her.
‘What About Bob’ is my all-time favorite, and I think I’ve always been prone to comedy.

I think ‘Total Divas’ has brought the women more mainstream and so many opportunities. However, I’ve always thought, if I’m supposed to be on the show, I’ll be on the show. It’s all about timing.
I want to be a voice to young children and women and people of all ages to go for their dreams, to be resilient and have courage. Don’t let fear motivate you. The American Dream says that all things are possible, and I genuinely believe that.

To me, when – just like when you watch a movie or you watch a TV show, to me, you know, Nicole Kidman or Leonardo DiCaprio, you know that they are actors, but also, great actors find that extension of themselves. So, when I walk through that curtain, I find the extension of myself of being the Ravishing Russian in there.
