Taya Valkyrie Talks Missed Opportunities In WWE NXT

Valkyrie was part of NXT from February to November 2021

When Taya Valkyrie signed for WWE NXT in early 2021 as Franky Monet, fans were excited to see what the veteran could do on the Black and Gold brand. However, after only six matches for the promotion, Valkyrie was released in November 2021.

The release was disappointing for many fans, never mind Valkyrie herself, with Taya saying the following about her time in NXT during a virtual signing sessions with East Coast Autograph Auctions:

“It was great [being in NXT] but I wish that I had gotten more of an opportunity to show what I can do, I’ll be honest. I didn’t feel like I was given the opportunity I needed and I don’t even think I scratched the surface of what you all know, know La Wera Loca and Taya Valkyrie bring to the table but, with that said, I did gain a lot of knowledge, I learned a lot about myself and I am super excited to bring all of that and remind all of you about who I am starting next week.”

As to what’s next, Taya said wait and see:

“Everything, I promise you, will play out and it will play out in the best way possible. I just know that I’m taking my time to figure out what the best place is for me, for my family, what makes me happy and it’s gonna be well worth the wait.”
