Maxine Confirms Departure From WWE, Not Planning On Wrestling Again

Maxine confirmed rumors of her departure from WWE via Twitter Friday.

“We have come to terms on my release. Its been a ride I want to thank WWE for the experience and understanding on my feelings,” Maxine wrote. “Its not easy saying goodbye. But there are other options at wich I can do. To my fans you may not see me on the WWE screen but on another(;.”

She continues, “I want to do nothing but get the real chance to entertain all of you…sometimes you have to make that chance for yourself!!

“I want to take all of you with me…so I hope you all understand why i made my decision.”

Maxine also says she has no plans to continue wrestling.

She clarified, “Im not going to another wrestling company that is not in my plans!!! I didnt ask for my release to go to another company.”

According to, Maxine quit WWE due to frustrations with “not being offered a guaranteed deal and not having the chance to prove herself on TV beyond the WWE NXT level.” Her profile, however, remains on the company website and no official announcement concerning her status has been made.

Maxine, whose real name is Karlee Perez, joined WWE as a developmental talent in 2009. After learning the ropes in Florida Championship Wrestling, she was promoted to NXT for the Diva-exclusive third season. She returned to the program in August and became involved in a love triangle with Derrick Bateman and Johnny Curtis.

    @Buttercastle yep I think most fans would’ve been more satisfied with Trish,Lita,Sable,Terri,and or Sunny.

    @Bill Maybe they think that, but why did it have to be Chyna who granted our wish?

  • Brian_sXe

    Am i the only one who thought she had potential to be a top diva?

    Guess her own attitude held her back, after 3 years she complains about beeing held back. WWE must have seen this attitude as a reason to not push her…

    To bad…i liked her

  • Cropsy

    What a poser. I’m glad she’s gone.

    JohnCena33 is what you call a troll. That’s obvious by his name. No one honestly likes John Cena, they are just hoping he will be on the same level as The Rock or Stone Cold which won’t ever happen. He puts things on here to get a rise out of people. Its best to ignore him.

    JohnCena33, no offence, but did you just seriously ask such a stupid question?

    So many people who have made comments about her and just tear her appart simply because they dont know her -_- She was actually great in the ring and NOT just another “Model” as some tool stated earlier. Everyone on her season of NXT was on the Main Roster except her so Its easy to see where shes coming from.

    Did she just hint a TNA run.

    Whenever these women leave because they are not getting the push they think they deserve, then say they are not wrestling again, it shows their heart wasnt really in it and that they were just using it as a potential way to get famous.
    Kinda reminds me of Fakih trying to use every avenue she can to maintain a level of fame.
    They dont have the passion for the business and expect everything to be given to them.

  • Will Henderson

    translation, she’s another model who saw that being a wrestler is very hard work and she wasn’t improving enough to get off of NXT Land and decided that she gets better pay in modeling. sad but true. these models can’t handle it. there’s a reason why AJ’s getting a push and not you “Sugar Tits”.

    WHO? Maxipad who is this?

  • Oh well… She missed her opportunity and she could have toughed it out a little bit long.
