Interestingly, the 38-year-old mother made her return at an independent wrestling event last month in Maryland.

The heart of the matter

Speaking about the roadmap of her return to WWE, Mendes emphasized that she first wants to dominate the indy scene before returning to the professional wrestling juggernaut.

“I feel like this is my business plan; I want to conquer the independents. I want to dominate in the independents and be super over and have incredible 30-40 minute matches in the independents and show people that I am a great worker and a great performer.”
She added, “As soon as I can say that about myself then I am going to talk to them. They may talk to me before then, but I really want to establish myself in the independents before I even step foot in a WWE door again.”

The former Total Divas star also revealed she wants to be an inspirational figure for her daughter and needs to perfect the craft of balancing a career as a professional wrestler while still being a mother.

What’s next?

Mendes, for the time being, will be competing on the Independent circuit before she makes the leap to WWE. She also revealed her ambitions of getting inducted into the Hall of Fame once she gets back to the promotion.
