Taya Valkyrie Issues Statement Following WWE Release & Says She Was Lied To

Taya Valkyrie departed Impact Wrestling with her goal of joining her husband, John Morrison, in WWE. She would achieve this and went on to wrestle on their NXT brand as Franky Monet, a name she has picked herself. All seemed to be going well in her WWE career, but unfortunately for her, the company wanted to revamp the brand and is now focusing on more youthful talent. This decision put her at risk, and despite not looking 38 years old and having her spouse employed by them, WWE would release her along with numerous others last week.

Now Valkyrie has taken to social media to issue a statement thanking Triple H and Shawn Michaels. However, she would follow up with a tweet saying she was struggling to process how many people lied to her.

Taya Valkyrie held the record for the longest-reigning Impact Knockouts Championship at 377 days but failed to recapture the title at Impact Wrestling’s January pay-per-view. It would later come out that her contract had expired, and she was leaving the promotion. What comes next for her is unclear, as with so many wrestlers now current free agents, there will be a lot of competition for contracts. Nevertheless, the belief is that her run with Impact Wrestling came to an end on good terms, so it wouldn’t be a surprise to see her return to the company when her non-compete expires on December 4th.
