Peyton Royce Cuts Impassioned Promo On WWE Raw Talk
"Why not just let me go? Let me go and see what happens?"
WWE Raw Talk and Talking Smack have become the new home for unscripted, impassioned promos by WWE superstars.
Previously the likes of The Miz, Daniel Bryan and Cesaro have earned praise from fellow wrestlers and fans for their off-the-cuff and stimulated remarks on the shows, and now Peyton Royce has become the latest WWE superstar to let it all out.
The former 'IIconics' member was a guest on Raw Talk - WWE's post-Raw talk show - on Monday evening, with Royce exclaiming that her patience with her situation is 'running thin' and highlighting her own belief in her ability.
She said: "I have been quiet, but closed mouths don't get paid. I'm not here to hide my talents. In fact, my talents are hidden behind the opinions of others. Why not just let me go? Let me go and see what happens?
"Asuka is injured right now and that sucks for her, but when a talent goes down, a spot opens up, and that spot is massive. Why not me? Why does it always have to be the same old, same old? I packed up my life, moved across the world, set up in a completely different country with not much of a support system to chase this dream. To do what? To get stuck in a locker room watching other women do what I do better than 98% of them. The other 2%, I sure as hell give them a run for their money.
"It actually hurts when you know deep in your soul you are destined to be where you are, striving for what you feel you deserve. My potential haunts me. When you're striving for something you feel you really deserve. This is where I'm meant to be. My patience has been running thin for quite some time. Stop wasting my time and give me Asuka!"
Royce was last in action on Raw on February 15, when she and Lacey Evans fought Charlotte Flair and Asuka to a no-contest.
