Riott has been held in high regards by all who she worked with. In a report by Fightful Select, Riott was said to be universally popular backstage and the news of her release shook the WWE roster. Once the news broke, many WWE talent as well as talent from other promotions took to social media in response.
First was a response from her tag team partner and best friend Liv Morgan. Morgan has developed such a strong bond with Riott over their years as a tag team. If there is anyone who knows Riott’s ambition and talent it is her fellow squad member. Morgan also was one of many who referred to Riott by her indie name of Heidi Lovelace.
Former and longest reigning SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley touched on how caring of a person Riott is in her every day life. She ended her social media post by say that she is “one of the greatest wrestlers out there.”
Recent releases themselves, Jessica McKay (Billie Kay) and Cassie Lee (Peyton Royce) shared their love on Twitter. Mckay and Lee, best known together as The IIconics, were released during the first round of cuts after WrestleMania in April.
Former Riott Squad member Sarah Rowe (Logan) shared her words on Instagram. Rowe was part of the releases from 2020. At the time the Riott Squad were not together and afterwards they reunited Riott and Morgan.
As mentioned earlier, wrestlers in other promotions all over the wrestling industry had some kind and uplifting words for Riott. Here are a few below.
Currently Riott would fall under the 90-day non-compete clause that main roster releases are held to. There is no doubt that she will rise in prominence elsewhere – this is just the beginning.
