It’s official: Maxine is gone from WWE.
The NXT Diva, real name Karlee Perez, confirmed via Twitter today that she has come to terms with WWE on her departure and thanked the company.
She wrote: “We have come to terms on my release. Its been a ride I want to thank @wwe for the experience and understanding on my feelings. Its not easy saying goodbye. But there are other options at which I can do. To my fans you may not see me on the WWE screen but on another. I want to do nothing but get the real chance to entertain all of you…sometimes you have to make that chance for yourself!! I want to take all of you with me…so I hope you all understand why i made my decision.”
Perez also added that she wasn’t planning on going to another wrestling company, writing: “I’m not going to another wrestling company that is not in my plans!!! I didn’t ask for my release to go to another company.”
Perez, who was signed in 2009, has primarily worked on NXT, first on the all-Divas season in 2010, and then for the past year on the fifth season where she has been one of the main focal points.
Yesterday it was reported that Perez had quit the company, which was confirmed to us by sources today.
