• The Rock Comments On Ruby Riott’s WWE Release
Yesterday, Ruby Riott issued a statement on Instagram regarding her release from WWE.
You can read it below:
“Well… here it goes.
I’ve never been good at this sort of stuff. Yesterday in a matter of minutes, my life changed very drastically. But after some tears, some panic and a full box of Oreos, I was able look back at how lucky I’ve been to accomplish what I have.
I never thought I’d make it to WWE. I’ve been honored to be apart of a Squad of the most incredible women I’ve ever met, I’ve gotten to see the world, share locker rooms with some of the most talented women I know, some of which I’ve made lifelong friendships with.
I’ve gotten to meet fans that were just like me, introverted kids, who never quite felt like they fit in. And between the locker room and those fans, I felt like I belonged and I’m so grateful for that feeling.
With that, I am overwhelmed by the amount of calls/texts/tweets and support that I have received from former coworkers, friends, family and fans. Thank you so much for the kind words. You’ll never know how much it helped.
As for what’s next….in the beginning “Heidi Lovelace” was given to me, at the end “Ruby Riott” was taken away. So I don’t know what I’ll be called or where I’ll end up. But please know this is far from over. Thank you.”
WWF Legend The Rock commented the following under her post:
“You will resurface. Stronger, wiser & better 💪🏾 (thank you for the awesome birthday vid 🙏🏾 ❤️ )”
Liv Morgan issued another statement on the release of Ruby (who was her tag team partner) earlier today.
You can read it below:
“The best part of my career has been you. I’m forever grateful for your friendship, leadership, and patience. No one puts up with me like you do Rue. You’ve taught me so much about friendship, life, and wrestling. You are truly my better half and I’m gonna miss being your tag team partner more than I could ever explain. Thank you.
You are a gift and now I have to share you. I can’t wait to watch you rule the world.
Riott Squad for life, we got it tatted @rubyriottwwe @sarahrowe 11.21.17 ❤️ 💙 💚 “

• Old School ECW Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School ECW Veteran Mikey Whipwreck (Real name: John Watson) celebrates his 48th birthday today.
Mikey Whipwreck was originally a member of the ring crew in Todd Gordon’s NWA Eastern Championship Wrestling, but Mick Foley trained him to become a professional wrestler, who debuted in February 1994.
After the promotion was renamed Extreme Championship Wrestling, Mikey eventually ended up winning the ECW World Heavyweight Championship in 1995.
He joined Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling for a few months in 1999, but then returned to Paul Heyman’s ECW right away, where he wrestled until the company closed its doors in January 2001.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MIKEY WHIPWRECK!
