Santana Garrett Reveals Different Ideas Pitched For WWE Main Roster Run
Garrett was released by WWE in June
Santana Garrett has gone into detail about some of the different ideas she pitched for a run on the WWE main roster.
Quietly called up to the main roster in mid-2020, Garrett only appeared in the 2021 Women's Royal Rumble before being released by the promotion amid a host of 'budget cut' related departures following WrestleMania 37.
Garret has now revealed her pitches for how she could have been utilised on the main roster.
Speaking to Lucha Libre Online, she said: "I had a match against Liv Morgan, and one with Bianca, at the beginning of the pandemic, maybe right before it happened. That's when there was interest like, 'Hey, we want this girl.' I actually got moved up at the beginning of summer last year.
"I was brought to TV about four or five different times with different ideas coming in as this bad girl group with Vanessa Borne and Chelsea Green, coming in as a tag team with Chelsea, coming in as a singles wrestler, doing a whole superhero Wonder Woman character that I've done the past twelve years.
"It just never happened, unfortunately. We were written into the shows a couple of times and you know, things change all the time and that's wrestling and that's life. Unfortunately, it just didn't happen.
"I had my match in January with a bunch of talented women and I figured, 'this is my time to shine.' I had my hair done, had someone else make my gear -- I typically make my own gear -- I'm like, 'I'm feeling good.' I did a great job, got great feedback from the producers, and it was 'I'll see you soon.'
"I was feeling on cloud nine and then weeks went by and I was following up, checking in, and it was 'after Mania.' After Mania, more people got released and I was just hanging out at the house, reorganizing my pantry for the 100th time, and waiting for my time to debut. It just never happened. Then, I got the call, 'we're doing budget cuts.' That was it."
