So many of us can recall growing up with Gene Okerlund as the voice of our childhoods while interviewing the likes of Andre The Giant, Hulk Hogan, Roddy Piper, Ultimate Warrior, Randy Savage, Sting, and others.
Going to work out with a friend also forces me to 'keep the date' because it's more difficult to bail on them. A good friend at the gym can go a long way.
Different is good, and being different is what makes us stand out in the world.
Lita was, quite frankly, a trailblazer. She was the first woman to break down barriers by being different from other women in WWE. She didn't just break them down: she flew over them, put them through tables, and downright destroyed them.
For many years prior to landing my big break with WWE, I learned a lot about uphill battles. I had to scratch and claw day after day for a really big dream that, at many times, seemed totally impossible.
I thought,when I was reaching for my dream of making it to WWE, that once I got here, life would be perfect and easy. I had no idea that when I finally landed my big break, that was when the real work would begin.
If I were to pick a favorite SummerSlam match of all time, there's one iconic match that comes to mind: SummerSlam 1992, Bret Hart vs. The British Bulldog at Wembley Stadium in front of more than 80,000 people.
I debuted in WWE right around the time when the 'Attitude Era' ended and WWE programming switched to Parental Guidance. Back then, we had one champion, and if you weren't the champion or the challenger, securing television time was often challenging.
I've inherited my mom's nurturing side, but I've also gotten her 'chronically five minutes late for everything' side, too!
When I was growing up, I remember my uncle Bret 'Hitman' Hart having his own column in the Calgary Sun. To me, this was beyond cool.
I used to perform in Calgary, Edmonton, Red Deer, Cold Lake, Lethbridge, Medicine Hat, Camrose, Kamloops, Kelowna, Surrey, and all over Western Canada for Stampede Wrestling.
The IIconics are a feisty Australian duo who have been a team since they came to WWE. They're masters on the microphone, and they're willing to do whatever it takes to win!
My dad excelled at so many sports in his life. Everything from professional football to being a world-class shot putter, but nothing meant as much to my dad as what he accomplished in the ring as a WWE Superstar.
As awkward as it is to manoeuvre a ladder around the squared circle, there is an incredible art to 'excellently executing' a ladder match.
I've come to learn from my own experiences and those around me that it's not about survival of the fittest but about who can adapt the best to change.
Sometimes the best thing we can ask for is change, and a fresh start forces us to confront change head-on.
Lita was the perfect blend of pretty and punk, Lucha with a gothic edge and a high-flyer who could take on anyone, anytime, anyplace. She truly was ahead of her time.
I have a small circle of great friends who push me when I need it, tell me when I need to pick up my pace, and who make me want to be better. Sometimes, when I start procrastinating and just need to find that pep in my step, I think of how far I've come and how we can all be role models in our every day lives.
When I think of tag teams that have made me want to the very best, of course, I think of my family, but I also think about teams like Edge and Christian, The Hardy Boyz, and The Dudley Boyz, who all helped define tag teams during the Attitude Era.
Tag Team specialists like The Revival, The Singh Brothers, Sasha and Bayley, and myself and Beth Phoenix find ourselves watching back old Hart Foundation matches wanting to try to emulate 'The Porsche and The Tank.'
