Ruby Riott was one of the bigger names released this week from WWE and one of three women. Lana and Santana Garrett commented on their releases already on social media, and Riott is the latest one to do so.
Riott was last seen in the ring on last Friday’s SmackDown with her tag team partner Liv Morgan. They faced the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Natalya and Tamina in a losing effort. There were reports that The Riott Squad were about to make a heel turn and they were excited about what was to come.
Riott’s statement reads as follows:
“Well… here it goes.
I’ve never been good at this sort of stuff. Yesterday in a matter of minutes, my life changed very drastically. But after some tears, some panic and a full box of Oreos, I was able look back at how lucky I’ve been to accomplish what have. I never thought I’d make it to WWE. I’ve been honored to be apart of a Squad of the most incredible women I’ve ever met, I’ve gotten to see the world, share locker rooms with some of the most talented women I know, some of which I’ve made lifelong friendships with. I’ve gotten to meet fans that were just like me, introverted kids, who never quite felt like they fit in. And between the locker room and those fans, I felt like I belonged and I’m so grateful for that feeling. With that, I am overwhelmed by the amount of calls/texts/tweets and support that I have received from former coworkers, friends, family and fans. Thank you so much for the kind words. You’ll never know how much it helped. As for what’s next….in the beginning “Heidi Lovelace” was given to me, at the end “Ruby Riott” was taken away. So I don’t know what I’ll be called or where I’ll end up. But please know this is far from over.
Her comments to this post are overflowing with love and support by so many wrestlers. Some include Alexa Bliss, Natalya, Dana Brooke, Dakota Kai, Raquel Gonzalez, Mandy Rose, Sonya Deville, and many many more!
