Before joining WWE, Scarlett and Karrion Kross competed on the independent circuit, where they first met. Although the couple had an instant connection, they initially tried to stay away from each other.
In an interview with Instinct Culture by Denise Salcedo, Kross revealed that he and Scarlett felt intimidated by how much they were attracted to one another.
"When her and I met, there was a spark and there was a connection. (...) It's like there's just the thing in the room when you know two people gravitate towards each other and we were both terrified of it. So we tried to stay away from each other for like a long time actually. It was kind of like her and I were so attracted to each other that it was actually intimidating to the both of us, so we tried to stay away from each other for a while," the former NXT Champion explained.

"I really just want close friends and family there because we were talking about it, like I don't think a 100-person wedding or more people is for me. A lot of these people like we might not even see in 10 years. I feel like I want it to be for us. I want to be surrounded by people who care about us. And I just wanna do it somewhere beautiful and have really good food. Food is really important," she said. (37:09 -37:30)
