Taya Valkyrie Slams WWE Following Latest Releases: "Stop Supporting A Company That Has Zero Respect For Their Talent"

Following John Morrison's release

Former WWE Superstar Taya Valkyrie has slammed her former employers following the latest round of releases.

Only two weeks after Valkyrie and 17 other talents were cut, WWE released more Superstars on November 18, letting go her husband John Morrison, all of Hit Row, Drake Maverick, Tegan Nox, Shane Thorne and Jaxson Ryker.

Shortly after news of the releases became public, Valkyrie hit out at WWE, encouraging fans to stop supporting a company that doesn't care about their talent or fanbase.

"Stop supporting a company that has ZERO respect for their talent. You love pro wrestling, spend your money on the hundreds of other alternatives. This is wrong. Ethically, as employers they don't care about us. Talent or fans," Taya tweeted.

Valkyrie then explained why she chastised WWE following criticism from a fan, writing: "My husband got fired. This is why I'm saying this. I'm speaking my truth. I'm sick and tired of ppl treating us like sh*t. In two weeks we lost both our incomes. Before the holidays, I'm allowed to feel how I do."

Morrison was released by WWE on Thursday, less than two years after he returned to the company. Valkyrie signed with WWE earlier this year after departing IMPACT Wrestling. She was let go on November 4 after a run on NXT.
