Just a few highlights of what you’ll hear in the interview with Karlee:

  • who from the WWE she’d mention in an acceptance speech for an Oscar or an Emmy
  •  “grown men throwing up over the top rope during our practices”
  • debating “with people all day long about ‘wrestling’s fake’,”
  • being “in better shape now than when I was in the business.”
  • “Torn ACLs are normal in that business, that was happening daily.”
  • “Doing shows in front of five people in cement parking lots and the majority of the people were missing their teeth.”
  • leaving WWE “to pursue a dream.” (“I was so scared when I left WWE. … Nobody could tell, I can say it now, nobody knew. I remember sitting in that office saying I wanted my release and they looked at me like I was crazy.”)
