If I were you, next week, I would give her the beatdown of her life. I know you have this inner rage, unleash it.

It means I’m not here to be a cover girl, I’m here to cover girls in the middle of that ring and win. I am gonna be the most dominant Diva to ever walk through the WWE, I promise that. So, Sasha Banks needs to go to Summer Rae and ask her what its like to be in the ring with me. I’m a fighter and I will give Sasha the best fight of her life next week.
