Ruby Riott Posts Heartfelt Statement Following WWE Release
Riott was let go by WWE on Wednesday
Ruby Riott has taken to Instagram to share an emotional, heartfelt statement following her release by WWE.
Riott was one of six names let go by the promotion earlier this week in the latest round of cuts. Riott, Braun Strowman, Murphy, Aleister Black, Lana and Santana Garrett were all released on Wednesday.
Riott has now commented on her WWE departure on social media, saying she feels lucky for what she has been able to accomplish and is looking forward to what is next for her.
She wrote: "Well... here it goes.
"I’ve never been good at this sort of stuff. Yesterday in a matter of minutes, my life changed very drastically. But after some tears, some panic and a full box of Oreos, I was able look back at how lucky I’ve been to accomplish what have.
"I never thought I’d make it to WWE. I’ve been honored to be apart of a Squad of the most incredible women I’ve ever met, I’ve gotten to see the world, share locker rooms with some of the most talented women I know, some of which I’ve made lifelong friendships with. I’ve gotten to meet fans that were just like me, introverted kids, who never quite felt like they fit in. And between the locker room and those fans, I felt like I belonged and I’m so grateful for that feeling.
"With that, I am overwhelmed by the amount of calls/texts/tweets and support that I have received from former coworkers, friends, family and fans. Thank you so much for the kind words. You’ll never know how much it helped. As for what’s next....in the beginning “Heidi Lovelace” was given to me, at the end “Ruby Riott” was taken away. So I don’t know what I’ll be called or where I’ll end up. But please know this is far from over. Thank you."
