Candice LeRae has expanded on comments about how she wanted to be Randy Savage growing up, while naming her dream in-ring opponent. The Raw star spoke with Keith Whittier for a new interview, and you can see a couple of highlights below (per Fightful):

On her dream opponent: “Shawn Michaels.”

On wanting to be Randy Savage as a kid: “I adored Miss Elizabeth as a child. There was just something about the physicality, in-ring, that left me in awe when I watch wrestling. It’s why I fell in love with wrestling, the wrestling part of it. I saw Randy Savage and I wanted that, so badly. I fell in love with him and the presence he had in the ring. ‘That’s everything I want to be one day.’ That presence, I want to be halfway as good as he is, I’d be totally pumped about. It’s special. That feeling he made me feel while watching, I loved it.”
