"Knowing the importance of this subject, we wanted to do something special to raise money and awareness to mental health issues, and we're excited to partner with TagMeInUnited to help ensure young men & women who suffer from mental health know that they are not alone and we as Grown Ass Women are there for them," said GAW host Valerie Wyndham (SoCal Val), a former announcer in Impact Wrestling and interviewer on FITE TV.

"After losing Daffney (Shannon Unger) and Ashley Massaro, I really begin to understand how big of an issue mental health really impacts our industry. It also opened up the conversation to see this is a worldwide epidemic" added co-host Mickie James, a six-time World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) Women's Champion, four-time Impact Knockouts World Champion, and country music recording artist. "We want to show EVERYONE, it’s ok. You are loved and accepted, just the way you are."

"I don’t think anyone truly understands the magnitude of emotions one goes through. I still struggle with confidence and self-esteem even though I am a two-time WWE Women's Champion and five-time Impact Knockout’s World Champion. It’s so important that we’re there for one another. That's why we feel like Tag Me In United is the perfect initiative for DRESSLEMANIA II." says Lisa Marie Varon
