For people to doubt me. People have told me many times in my life that I will never be anything, I will never be a star. I believe in myself and I will prove you (Shane McMahon) wrong,”  she said. [email protected] looks to prove the doubters WRONG when she challenges @NaomiWWE for the #SDLive #WomensTitle at #MITB! #TalkingSmack pic.twitter.com/prXsuBeP5l- WWE (@WWE) June 7, 2017last_img read more
