Zoey Stark has opened up about working as a producer while she was injured. 

Stark suffered a torn MCL/Meniscus in November and was out of action until returning last month. During her time away from the ring, she worked backstage in NXT as a producer. She spoke with Corey Graves on After the Bell recently about the experience. 

"I knew I was going to come back and I knew producing was going to help me inside the ring," Stark said. "When you coach somebody, two people are learning. And I'm learning at the same time because now I'm really having to think about it. It's amazing to be able to do both sides and then you get a different side, and like 'Oh, this is what producers have to go through, I had no idea.'"

"People kind of want to go off and do their own thing and it throws off the producer, it throws off the camera guys, it throws off everyone. You have to be in full communication with everyone, we're all a team in this so you can't just go rogue and do your own thing. We need to help each other, we all have the same goal, we all want to have a great match, we all want to tell a story." 

Earlier in the conversation, Stark also spoke about how she enjoys training others in the WWE Performance Center as well. 

"I love coming into this Performance Center and I love being here, and talking with all the coaches, learning as much as I can, and then even helping out other students here who are learning," she said. 

"This is my home. I would live here if they would let me."
