Lee drops out of college due to financial issues. She begins working full-time to afford wrestling training and trains under the tutelage of Jay Lethal.
I ran into financial problems and couldn’t afford (school) anymore, so I dropped out. I’ve always wanted to entertain people, and when I was in school I was interested in creative writing, but wrestling was always there. When I ran into financial problems I just figured when life gives you lemons, you have to make lemonade.
