Franky Monet Responds To Shocking WWE Release

Franky Monet

Franky Monet has issued a response following her shock release from WWE that came only seven months after she made her debut for the company.

Monet appeared for the first time on WWE television on the April 13th edition of NXT. During her time as part of the NXT brand, Franky Monet only wrestled six times and leaves WWE with a 3-3 record.

The star formerly known as Taya Valkyrie was part of another mass release instigated by WWE where 18 stars were let go by the company. The likes of Karrion Kross, Keith Lee, and Nia Jax were among those also let go.

Franky Monet took to social media to issue a statement following her WWE departure where she thanks NXT bosses Triple H and Shawn Michaels but admits to being mad as to how her WWE career went:

“Well that didn’t go as planned. First and foremost I would like to thank @wwe for allowing me to live my dream, even if it was cut short. To say I am disappointed would be a huge understatement, I’m confused, hurt, sad and honestly mad.”

“I came there as one of the top luchadoras of our era and honestly leaving there a little broken. I LOVED everyday when I got to work, being around the greatest minds in the business, getting to train in the BEST pro wrestling training facility in the world and see my friends everyday. I was completely enveloped in the industry.”

“Thank you to @tripleh and @shawnmichaelswwe and the entire PC staff for welcoming me with open arms and allowing me to learn from you. I know who I am, I know what I’ve done and I know I have more to give. This is just another swerve in my journey that I didn’t expect but to be honest, my life has always been filled with those.”

“Im a fighter, im stubborn and I am a very very good pro wrestler. Thank you to everyone that’s supported me through this chapter and thank you to everyone that will continue to support me into the next one. Time to let la WERA LOCA loose. Let’s make magic.”

Prior to joining WWE Taya Valkyrie competed for the likes of AAA, Lucha Underground, and IMPACT Wrestling where she is still the longest-reigning Knockouts Champion in history.
