• Former Women’s Champion Says WWE Doesn’t Know How To Market African-American Talent

During a recent interview with Women’s Wrestling Weekly, former 2 time WWE Women’s Champion Jazz talked about her release from the WWE.

Below is what Jazz said:

“They called us to the back and said we were wrestling too much like men. I thought, well that’s the end of my career.

If I wasn’t in the company, I would be a part of the company because of the way it is today. I still have no clue of why I was released. I’m championed one day and released the next day.

I don’t think they know how to market to African Americans. I was a champion and I’ve never had an action figure. They did the screening and scanning and said my action figure is in high demand and I never saw it.”
