In a recent interview with Chris Van Vliet as part of the INSIGHT With Chris Van Vliet podcast, WWE superstar Tiffany Stratton discussed several topics, including her WWE main roster debut, her run as the WWE NXT Women’s Champion, her rise in popularity and much more.

Highlights of the interview are below:

On her main roster debut: “So I guess I kind of debuted at the Rumble. I didn’t really know that I was making my debut on the main roster, but I had the Rumble. Then that Tuesday, I was kind of waiting to hear if I was going to be on NXT that night, and I wasn’t. So I kind of asked them I was like, ‘Am I getting called up?’ And they’re like, ‘Oh, we’re not sure.’ And then I get a text saying that I have travel for SmackDown. And then I asked ‘Am I called up?; They’re like, ‘We’re not sure.’ And then Friday, I got the confirmation that I was being called up and then I had my in-ring debut and the rest is history.”

On winning the NXT Women’s Championship: “So that day, I’m trying to remember, I’m pretty sure it was a bit chaotic, which is like every single TV. But I honestly was just so nervous. I actually did not like my gear at all that day. I just didn’t like the fit, I didn’t really like the colour. I don’t know. It’s just when something doesn’t look amazing on you and it’s like a big moment it’s kind of like, oh, so that was kind of a little downer. But yeah, that day, it was intense. And afterwards, honestly, I had like no feeling like I was numb. I feel like it didn’t hit me until I came back and then I got emotional. It was my longest match I’ve ever had so I was so tired, I was so blown up, I was just exhausted, I hurt my shoulder a little bit. But all in all, it was a great day.”

On her rise in popularity: “My entire NXT run I feel like everything just happened so fast. I had only trained for eight weeks before even debuting on TV. Yeah, so that was scary. And my first match was atrocious, it was so bad. Then I got taken off TV for a couple of weeks. And I was like, I’m gonna come back better than ever. So I worked really hard. I came back I had my second match against Iyo Sky actually. And it was amazing. And then just I kept learning and I kept getting better with every single rep. And I think they saw that. And yeah, like, the sky’s the limit for me right now.”
