In an interview with Busted Open Radio, Francine revealed that her recent return to wrestling after her retirement in 2006 made her fall in love with the business again.

She said: “I think I enjoyed it more than [Daffney] did. Right now I think of…What’s that line from the movie? ‘I thought I was out but they pulled me back in?’ I think that’s what I’m kind of experiencing right now because with working this past weekend I honestly thought this was all behind me and I’m just going to be signing some stuff, but the response we got has been so overwhelming that Shane [Douglas] and I are booked together like into the beginning of next year now. They have me doing shows again and like I said, I was apprehensive, but I had such a good time and my health isn’t 100% so I can’t bump like I used to and quite frankly I don’t want to, because it hurts, but I can still do some stuff and I was able to swing that cane and it just felt good. It was so great playing off the fans and stuff. I realized that this weekend made me fall in love with wrestling again. It was something that I had been lacking because I’m just a mom, you know? I’m just a mom and a housewive and a caregiver for my mom and I have not been in front of people in forever. And that just gave me like a little taste and I’m like, ‘I think I want a little more.’ So if the people want us, we’re gonna come and we’re gonna do it.
