Summer Talks About How She’s Viewed on Total Divas, Being Friends with Renee Young, More

– The Miami Herald recently spoke with WWE Diva Summer Rae. Here are some highlights:

Gaining popularity from Total Divas:
“It’s crazy. It’s not just wrestling fans now that recognize us and want to get our picture. It’s tons of women. I think most men have said we’ve bridged the gap between their wives, girlfriends and wrestling. It’s really cool because now they don’t have to sneak around and watch Monday Night Raw anymore. Their girlfriends want to watch Raw because of us. It’s very cool to be relationship counselors for people across America.”

Being on a reality TV show:
“I think how people view me on the show is going to change throughout the season. I think that right now I’ve kind of done some things to rub people the wrong way. I think by the end of the season you are going to see a different side of me. It’s definitely something that is a direct reflection in the mirror when you do a reality show. You can see what your flaws are and what you need to work on. I’m definitely seeing it now as episodes are airing. It’s a great thing. I’m just very fortunate to be with these wonderful women, sharing my life to the world.”

Her relationship with Renee Young:
“I think someone who has helped me the most in the locker room has been one of my closest friends, [WWE interviewer and host] Renee is just really cool. It’s good to get a non-wrestling, non-diva perspective on matches. She is very funny, good comic relief. We’re kind of buds. I love my Renee Young.”
