Taya Valkyrie provides statement on her shocking WWE release

Taya Valkyrie took to social media to issue a statement on her shocking WWE release.

The former Franky Monet was among a multitude of names that included Scarlett Bordeaux, Ember Moon, Mia Yim, Nia Jax, and more released from the company on Thursday.

Valkyrie only signed for the company earlier this year, making her NXT debut in May under the new moniker, Franky Monet.

Valkyrie came into NXT with a long list of achievements from her time in IMPACT! Wrestling, Lucha Underground and AAA. Yet despite all of her accolades, she was nowhere near booked as well as she should’ve been and after only a few short months in NXT, the company let her go.

In a lengthy post on Instagram, she thanked WWE, Triple H and Shawn Michaels before expressing her disappointment over the situation:

“Well, that didn’t go as planned! First and foremost I would like to thank @wwe for allowing me to live my dream, even if it was cut short. To say I am disappointed would be an understatement, I’m confused, hurt, sad and honestly mad. I came there as one of the top luchadoras of our era and honestly leaving there a little broken.”

She went on to state:

“I know who I am, I know what I’ve done and I know I have more to give. This is just another swerve in my journey that I didn’t expect but to be honest, my life has always been filled with those. Im a fighter, im stubborn and I am a very very good pro wrestler. Thank you to everyone that’s supported me through this chapter and thank you to everyone that will continue to support me into the next one. Time to let la WERA LOCA loose. Let’s make magic.”

In a more recent post on Twitter, Valkyrie revealed further insight into her time in NXT:

“I’ll say the hardest thing for me to process after being released, is realizing the amount of ppl that lied to me. Some of ya’ll should be ashamed.”

All at Diva Dirt wish Taya Valkyrie all the best and can’t wait to see her back in the ring very very soon.
