During a recent interview on Lilian Garcia's Chasing Glory Podcast, Dana Brooke revealed that she almost quit WWE. She revealed her big push and title match against Charlotte Flair was nixed but she decided to stick around and fight for her position.
“When I was told that ‘your match isn’t happening,’ at that point in time I was just like ‘No. This place does not define me. I am stronger than this. I wanna go to prove to the world that you can’t keep me down.’ I said ‘You know something, if I quit now, what kind of example am I gonna be for everyone that’s followed me. Who’s supported me. Who’s been my backbone through the hardest time’ […] I cannot give up now.”
