It amazes me & breaks my [heart] to have people says lies about me. Im 1 of the most humble person you’ll ever meet. I & my people know #DaTruth. So for the record: #No I DONT have an attitude or ego problem. #No Im NOT going to go on a rant & bad mouth @WWE . But #Yes I got screwed. Regardless though.. I am still endlessly grateful for all opportunities trusted upon me by @WWE during my time there. #CaseClosed
Velez was signed last year after appearing on the USA Network revival of Tough Enough.
Thoughts: This is solely my personal opinion, but I think it’s funny that whenever a woman is involved, there’s ‘attitude’ rumors. Wrestling is and always will be a man’s world, it seems. Nonetheless, I tend to consider things like this a “Don’t believe everything you read” situation. Was it not just last week that these same websites falsely reported Rosa Mendes had been arrested for intoxication?
