But, the problem is, when I dove into the unknown I became the only female manager to work in 4 current major wrestling companies. I’m that good. I put the spotlight on stars. All I need is a microphone, time, and a platform. Hey Drake, where is that next opportunity? Because there are lots of alternative options. #205live #theopportunist @wwe @wwemaverick"
