WWE.com’s “Total Divas” Q&A’s continue with an exclusive sitdown with JoJo. Here’s what the multitalented newcomer had to say in her first-ever interview!

WWE.com: When did you know that being a Diva was right for you?

JoJo: I knew from the first day that I got in the ring that that’s where I was meant to be. I fell in love with it. I was like, “This is home.”

WWE.com: Who was the first Diva you met and what was that experience like?

JoJo: I first met Natalya, and it was like, “Whoa,” because she’s a veteran, and she is where I am trying to be. She’s so helpful, and she knows so much about the business, so it is really an eye-opener. You’re just in awe when you meet her, and you respect her right off the bat.

WWE.com: Of that entire process, and out of all the possible Divas and all the new Divas who are in the Performance Center and in NXT, how did it come to be that you and Eva Marie were the ones selected to be on “Total Divas”?

JoJo: I honestly had no idea that I was going to get chosen. I just showed off my personality, and I think I brought something to the table that they enjoyed. We didn’t know what to expect or what anything was about. We went in, showed who we were, and apparently they loved it.

WWE.com: Viewers get the sense that “Total Divas” features a lot of drama, but what kind of wisdom are you absorbing from the process and from the other Divas?

JoJo: This whole show has really taught me how to deal with this business in general. This is my first time away from home, so constantly being on the road is a whirlwind. I’m learning from all the other Divas, how to respect each other and how to respect all the Superstars — how to shake their hands, to make yourself known in a respectful way and how to deal with this whole traveling thing in general. One of the most difficult parts of the job is traveling. Each day, you just learn how to be yourself and how to incorporate it into your work. Slowly I’m learning, “Oh I might be good as this or I might be good as that.” [The other Divas] have really helped with that.
