With Renee Paquette on The Sessions, Summer Rae talked about her returning to WWE at the Royal Rumble and why she left Vince McMahon's federation. About her On her participation in the Royal Rumble and her new look: "People don't recognize me anymore now.
But when they called me for the Royal Rumble, they said, 'Would you care? Would you consider such a thing? ' What I said was: 'I have red hair now. I have changed a lot but I accept it. I think I am extremely different than before.
Some people don't even recognize me on social media anymore. I texted Eva Marie two days before I got red hair, I was going to her hairdresser. I've had the same cut, color and everything for 34 years. So, I texted Eva and said: 'I'm thinking about getting my hair red.
I have decided' When I first made them, they were a very dark color, like purple red. When I told Eva, she told me: 'You will freak out at first but then, after two days, you will really like them." On WWE's initial idea of the Royal Rumble: “We didn't have to announce that I was going to be at the Royal Rumble, it should have been a surprise.
I only discovered it two hours ago. I've been gone a long time but I didn't know if the fan reaction was going to be positive or negative. I'm really happy now that I don't have to keep it a secret until the end of the month."
On the reason for her farewell to WWE: "I had a bone spur in the vertebrae of her neck. I have thoracic outlet syndrome. I think you can live with bone spurs but thoracic outlet syndrome is horrible. Many NFL pitchers have it.
What they wanted to do was remove my first rib. The first rib is technically your trap. The rib is constantly putting pressure on the nerves and devastating you."
Mustafa Ali: "I ask for my release from WWE"
WWE fans didn't get a breather in 2021, when most of their favorite wrestlers were fired from the company in a series of release rounds that spread throughout the year.
The last one, a few days before the end of 2021, had Toni Storm as the protagonist, even if she was the same winner of the Mae Young Classic to ask for her release for personal reasons. To get the year off to a good start, another fighter on the SmackDown roster just asked WWE to terminate their contract.
This is Mustafa Ali, who with a press release on his social accounts broke the news to his fans: "I have a much more important message than my dreams in pro wrestling. Despite my best efforts, I won't be able to get this message across as long as I'm working with WWE.
For this, I ask to be released by WWE. " Mustafa Ali's farewell message comes after a long period of inactivity for him: his last match dates back to the October 29 episode of SmackDown, when he lost to Drew McIntyre for the occasion.
It seems that Ali himself had asked the company for a break to accommodate the birth of his third child, but it was reported that the booking team had no plans for his return. Immediately following the news launched by Mustafa Ali, Fightful's Sean Ross Sapp reported that during the past few months Ali would not be on paternity, but that he would only be asking for a show off.
It should be noted that, at the moment, WWE has not yet published any announcement on the situation of Mustafa Ali, who is still under contract with the Stamford company. We will keep you updated as soon as further details on the affair emerge.
