• Peyton Royce Issues Statement After Her Release From WWE
Former Women’s Tag Team Champion Peyton Royce got released from WWE yesterday due to budget cuts and she has now issued a statement regarding this on Instagram.
You can read it below:
“Although my heart is in some need of repairs I must send out some thanks. To Mr. McMahon & HHH for allowing me the opportunity to work for you I have loved every moment of it & I will cherish my memories at WWE for the rest of my life. Some of my wildest dreams came true under your roof.
I cannot thank my wonderful fans enough. You all fuel my passion & my soul. I’ll never be able to thank you enough for your love through the years. I wouldn’t have had these opportunities without you!
To all the women & men I have shared the ring & locker room with these past 6 years, thank you! All your texts these past 24 hours have meant the world to me. I will miss your great minds, our memories but most our friendship. I’m so grateful to have met you all. You made me a better person.
My hope is that I have made my country, my family & friends back home proud. If so, I feel success in that. Without their support of me chasing my dreams since I was merely 10 years old, I couldn’t have done it.
My husband has been my absolute rock & my guidance through my whole journey here. I am so lucky to have his love & support. Baba, thank you for believing in me/my vision, for supporting my crazy ideas & always making me feel like I can accomplish anything my mind desires. You make my life whole.
This chapter of my life has finished but I know in my heart I’m not done just yet. This really is just the beginning & I’m excited to get to work on the future.”
Peyton’s former tag team partner Billie Kay (together known as The IIconics) also got released from WWE and she issued a statement as well (tap here to read it).
