Notorious Mimi who was released after only eight months in the WWE has reflected on her experiences there.
During a recent appearance on Talk is Jericho, Mimi said she learned a lot while working in the company, but admitted her frustrations about not getting much TV time.
Reflecting further on her release, Mimi said her pitches for storylines and characters had gone “unnoticed” in the months leading up to being let go.
“I was still 19 when I got fired (from WWE) actually. It definitely really sucked, but at the same time, part of me immediately went, I actually get to wrestle again.
“I was so excited because I had done nothing for three months. I pitched stuff, it had gotten ignored. I’d offer storylines, characters, stuff like that and it had gone completely unnoticed and I couldn’t even get on live events for the life of me.
“Even though I was really sad, one, I think it was kind of one of those things where you see it coming but, more so, I was just like, thank God I get to actually wrestle again because I have 13 matches in 2022 which is way low for me or something like that and I’ve already had like 30 this year.
“It’s like you feel privileged to get the training and be able to make the paycheck but at the same time, if you’re not actually producing the product, you feel kind of pointless being there.” [H/T to POST Wrestling]
