Fitness Model Christina Vargas Granted Contract Release From WWE

Christina Vargas, a 29-year-old fitness model who signed a developmental contract with WWE in the spring, revealed on her Twitter account that she has parted ways with the sports-entertainment organization after requesting her release—she did not appear on television nor a single live event.

After recovering from vocal cord surgery, the Las Vegas, Nevada-based performer moved to Orlando, Florida, late last month to begin training at the WWE Performance Center. However, she soon came to the conclusion that she would rather pursue her passions in life: fitness and cooking.

She wrote on Instagram on Saturday, “I would like to thank the WWE for the wonderful opportunity that they had given me. I truly respect the sport, the athletes, and the staff for all the hard work and efforts they put in. While experiencing this new venture I realized my true passions were with cooking and fitness. Sometimes in life you need to do something you have never done to realize what is truly meant for you. I do not regret any part of this experience for I met life long friends and learned a lot about myself and what truly makes me happy. I still am a very big fan of the WWE & NXT. I want to thank all of the fans who supported me in my decisions and who keep supporting me in my future journey.”

When asked by Twitter user why she went attempted professional wrestling in the first place, Vargas wrote, “I’m an athlete. Thought I could of done both. I do love the wrestling part I just realized what meant more to me after.”

    That seemed pretty heartfelt to be fair.

    I honestly wish more of the fitness models who’s heart wasn’t in it would do that, Unless they grow to love it like Trish or Victoria I don’t think they belong.

    Only “model” diva I really like right now is Summer Rae because she actuallly seems pretty passionate and is a good wrestler for someone so inexperienced.
