Dasha Fuentes on why WWE released her

After five years with WWE, Dasha Fuentes was released by the company earlier in the year. This came as a surprising move by a lot of wrestling fans. Fuentes spoke with Chris Van Vliet of WSVN-TV, where she talks about her release and when she got the call and who it was that called her. Thank you to Fightful for transcribing the quotes.

“My manager at the time told me I was being released. I don’t want to name too many names but my manager called me and that was another thing, they called me on a Tuesday and I was told ‘After the events that occurred on Monday Night Raw, we are taking you off TV and you’re not going to WrestleMania’. I literally went back and I watched the interview and there a tiny little blip that happened but it was live, it was with Roman and I figured it was a pretty good interview and I could see the growth and consistency that was happening from week to week.”

“So I was like ‘Series of events?’ and I was just taken aback. I figured I would relax and not freak out about this, maybe they’re going to send me back to NXT because a lot of people don’t know that I ring announced for NXT and that’s my passion, I love ring announcing. I was told I’d get a call the next week and told what was going on. Well, the following Monday after WrestleMania I got a call that lasted literally like a minute and a half and they said ‘We’re letting you go’ and I was like ‘Well, thanks for 5 years.’ and that’s it,” said Fuentes.

Despite being shocked by the release by the WWE, she has moved on and that she enjoyed working with the company.

“I actually feel really good. It was a shock being let go by them but it’s not the end of the world. It’s crazy because I dedicated 5 years of my life to them and I was injured last year for a good chunk of it. I got injured July 27th and had surgery August 3rd and I still managed to work over 115 shows. I’m an optimist. I truly enjoyed working for the company, I was able to travel to 47 out of 50 states. I got to see all kinds of different towns that I never imagined,” said Fuentes.

Fuentes signed a contract with the company in 2014. Few people are aware that she started her WWE career as an in-ring competitor. She would debut in 2015 at an NXT Live event, where she would team up with Dana Brooke and now double champion Becky Lynch in a losing effort. They lost to Carmella, Alexa Bliss, and Devin Taylor. She would then begin her role as a backstage interviewer in 2015.

Her last appearance in the WWE was on Monday Night Raw back on April 1, just before WrestleMania.
