I've been so involved in the cheerleading industry for so long, and I've never really looked into anything other than cheerleading.
But when I went to SummerSlam, it opened my eyes to athleticism and the dedication that athletes bring to the ring. It was like I was watching a cheerleading contest, but with a wrestling edition."
PEOPLE also reports the following: “While at SummerSlam, Butler spent time with WWE Co-CEO Stephanie McMahon, who she believes [Gabi] inspired her to throw herself into the world of WWE: 'The way she poses it's very impressive and the conversation we had was very nice, 'Butler shared."

It was something I would obviously discuss with my wife. We just got married in July. She’s never been in the wrestling business and she’s heard about the traveling, being away, and all that. Of course, they don’t travel like they used to, which is a good thing — definitely will save some marriages.
But, I would love to [return], if we talked about it. She’s standing here staring at me [laughs]. If it was something where we both agreed, 'This is good,' I would love to."
