“We went to the same high school. I was three years ahead of her. Westfields Sports High, I was there for basketball, and she was there for dancing. We actually didn’t get along at first. We would see each other in line for all the shows WWE would do in Australia, all the signings they would do. One time Mickie James was signing near our hometown, and I remember Peyton being like four or five people in front of me in line, and I had been there about five hours at this point. So we used to have a little silent competition as to who was the biggest WWE fan,” Kay said.
