How excited she is for the showdown:
“I’m excited like a little sicko. I feel excited. I’m not nervous. I feel excited. I feel happy. I’m like, ‘Thank you for the opportunity. Thank you for allowing me to do this.’ I threw down the challenge and it was accepted, and now here we go, My first-ever Extreme Rules match. , I couldn’t be more happy. You know, last year I was on the pre-show and here I am defending SmackDown Women’s Championship against Ronda Rousey. It’s insane.”

“I have so much more to give in so many different ways. This is just one phase, you know what I mean? I have so much more to give as a champion, as a character, and as a performer. I’m blessed that this phase of my career was cemented with this championship, but literally, the best is yet to come. This is only the beginning, which is scary. But I mean, this is only the beginning.”
