Below is what she said during an interview with Denise Salcedo of Instinct Culture:
“We’re heading to Saudi for Elimination Chamber. No matches have been announced. It would be an honor to be the first-ever Arab superstar to perform in the Middle East. That’s always been a huge goal of mine.”
Aliyah also said the following about her WWE main roster call up:
“I had no idea. I was clueless, to say the least. I found out the day before (NXT) TV.
I just remember my drive that morning to the Performance Center to the shoot, I was just in tears, like I could not stop crying cause I couldn’t fathom that that was the last drive I was gonna make there.
Little did I know now that I am still training there, I am still going but back then I just remember the whole drive I was just balling.”
