Tenille Dashwood spoke with TV Insider discussing her run in Ring of Honor, the advice she got from Cody and more. Highlights are below:

On her current run with Ring Of Honor: I feel revived and alive again with wrestling. I started this because I love wrestling. Back when I was younger in Australia, I wanted to be a wrestler and loved what I did with WWE. Its completely different now. Its not five minutes on TV where Im asked to do such and such. Its having competitive singles matches every night. There are different opponents every night. Im meeting new people and improving my own skills every time by working with different people in the ring. It got me going again.

On what advice she received from Cody: We talked about how to go about things and make sure I enjoy it and taking advantage of the opportunities I have now. Just to do the things I havent been able to do in years. With WWE you dont always get to do things the way you like to do them, so now he said to remember that Im in control and can do things my way. To be doing things for a reason and to wrestle around the world. And not to do it for job, but to do it because you love and enjoy it and travel and meet people and wrestle. It was to remember all that.

On the IIconics Smackdown debut: I kind of knew it was coming, but I told them not to tell me if its happening because I wanted to be in the moment. I called Peyton out. I called her a liar. I said, Youre not at home right now. She was like, Oops you got me. I said, No, dont tell me! I have been friends with those girls for years. I just talked to the girls yesterday. They are on the European tour right now. We always catch up. We stay in contact. They come over my house, and we go into the hot tub. Were good friends. Im so excited for them. Seeing them really warms my heart doing what they love. I know what it feels like to have those big moments and that feeling. So, Im happy for them.
