Bayley was interviewed by Jan Murphy of The Kingston Whig-Standard about making her Wrestlemania debut at this link.  On her Mania debut, she commented, ""I’m very nervous.   I'm nervous to impress people. I'm nervous to make sure that I can hold onto my title, I'm nervous to impress everyone in the back to make sure that this isn't my last WrestleMania," she added, only half joking. "But it's such a good, nervous energy. I've always taught myself whenever I have big matches, I'll just use Takeovers for example, whenever I had a Takeover match, right before I went out, I was just a mess … so nervous. I'd tell myself, if you can't do this, how are you going to do WrestleMania? That's kind of how I got through every match. And every match was OK and I was fine. I've been waiting my whole career for this match and now is the time to prove to myself I was meant to be here."  She also noted she still gets very emotional when her NXT Takeover: Brooklyn match against Sasha Banks is brought up.

Rich Swann was interviewed by Josh Barnett for USA Today, discussing his road to WWE at this link.  On his real life struggles (losing his parents when he was a teenager) being brought publicly into play by WWE, Swann commented, "The thing is you can never sugarcoat anything.  If you’re going to tell a story, tell the truth. If you’re going to tell something, why not tell it all?  So what I decided to do was share my story because there’s other people, there’s other children, there’s other males, there’s other females that could be affected in a positive way. I saw that as a way to show not only the WWE Universe, but the world that you can overcome, no matter what.”
