She also feels a little nervous, considering that she has set huge goals for herself. “I’ve never been more excited, more nervous, which I was never get nervous, but I am so ready for this. I’ve been dreaming about this.
I’ve been really, really wanting this. And for this to be in the United States in San Jose, California, I have so much history there. I’ve had the greatest matches there, so February 18th is going to be the same. I’m going to make sure that is the greatest women’s match of all-time.
And when I hold up my championship, oh, cute, little, KAIRI, I’m gonna send her back to Japan, and she can go back to STARDOM, and I can be the global superstar that I’m meant to be. I’m about to take that title everywhere.
Not just New Japan, everywhere”. - Mercedes Mone said, as quoted by pwmania.com
