WWE Diva Threatened After Firing Message

Taya Valkyrie(former Franky Monet in NXT), who is the wife of former WWE star John Morrison recently revealed what went through her mind upon her release from WWE in November last year. In an appearance on Insight with Chris Van Vliet, Taya Valkyrie revealed her emotional battle. Not only that, she admitted that she was nervous about a return to the squared circle in front of the fans after the hostile reaction she received when she lashed out at WWE following her and her husband’s release.



Taya Valkyrie opens up on her mindset after the backlash

She revealed that the heavy criticism and threats from the fans led to her becoming anxious about her possible return. Here is what she said:

“I was just very anxious and didn’t know what to expect, especially because when I went to WWE, it was right after the whole 2020 pandemic when I didn’t work a single indie for a year, and I was, you know, only doing Impact TV tapings,” Taya said. “So it had been two years basically since I had been around fans, spoken to fans. Because at NXT, you don’t really have any fan interaction at all, and you’re in the CWC every day. So, it was just different. I didn’t know, I was just like, ‘do they like me? Do they hate me?’

Taya Valkyrie admitted that there have been times that she’s wondered if there was something she did that led to WWE releasing her:

“I don’t know,” Taya said. “It’s just, all I can say is that it’s really confusing and I tried to make sense of it for a really long time. I was really angry, as we all know, but you can’t make sense of something that makes no sense. All I can do and say is I worked very hard. I gave everything I could just like I’ve done, like everywhere I’ve worked before. And it was very confusing and I just didn’t know, I felt like I did something wrong.”

Since leaving WWE, she has been working in the independent circuit and recently returned to AAA, where she is now the #1 contender for Deonna Purrazzo’s AAA Reina de Reinas Championship, which Taya has held three times previously.
