In the interview, she explained why she felt so nervous heading into the match. Here is what she had to say: 

“I was just so nervous because she was going to have the match and be gone, so whatever happened, I was still going to be here, so it needed to be what people expected, because she’s already created this legacy and she’s a Hall of Famer and she’s looked at as one of the greats, and I feel like if I slip on a banana peel, I’m criticised for ‘Oh she wasn’t up to…’, you know what I mean?”

“It was just going, one, I can’t wait to out-bad guy her, and two, it was just going, she wanted to come back to face me, so I wanted to be the Charlotte Flair that she expected, and that was what I took so serious. She wanted to come back to face me, so I hope I live up to her expectations.”
