During an interview on the Gorilla Position podcast, Sami explained why he didn’t want his wife to appear on WWE TV at first:

“I’ve been extremely private my whole career and my whole life actually, but I shielded her specifically from it because she didn’t sign up for it, and I just don’t think she’s built for criticism.

The kind of criticism that these monsters online sometimes hurl at us, especially the women or whatever. And I just didn’t want to expose her to that and then somehow or another she ended up kind of involved in the story when we did the match in Montreal.”
