Details on why Scarlett disappeared from WWE television prior to her release

During an appearance on Renee Paquette’s Oral Sessions podcast, former WWE star Scarlett talked about why she wasn’t having matches on the main roster prior to her release from the company…

“I wasn’t medically cleared yet. I was having matches before Raw and SmackDown because they wanted me to wrestle. After the second match, everything was going great, I get home and look in the mirror and I’m like, ‘One of these doesn’t look like the other.’ [referencing her boobs]. The next day was NXT and I immediately go to medical and I’m like, ‘Hey, I’m not sure if I’m going crazy or if they always looked like this. Maybe I’m just tired.’ With the adrenaline from wrestling, you don’t notice certain things hurt all the time, so I didn’t think anything of it. I went to medical and they were like, ‘Yes, one of your boobs is totally gone.’ I was like, ‘I can get the surgery and can manage and be ringside, that’s no problem, I just can’t wrestle right away.’ The plan was, I guess for me to wrestle so they were like, ‘When you’re totally clear, you’re gonna wrestle.’ They scrapped all the managing stuff at that point and I was sitting at home for those last four months just waiting.”

Scarlett said the following regarding her dark matches…

“(I wrestled) Shotzi Blackheart, both times. Nothing with the busted implant was her fault. I don’t know what happened. I could have been just falling forward. People haven’t talked about it as much how often it happens. Even when I went to the doctor, they’re like, ‘yeah, we’ve done a lot of the girls,’ whoever has implants. It wasn’t a big secret. I wasn’t afraid to talk about it, but I was told, ‘it’s probably better if you don’t tell anyone what happened. I’m not embarrassed by it.”

Scarlett also said the following about her and Karrion Kross signing with WWE…

“We were also ready, when we signed up for WWE, we were trading creative freedom to finally be able to have a steady income. We got our house because of WWE and were so grateful to even have jobs during the pandemic when people we knew, I had family members who lost their jobs, people were struggling on the independent scene. We were so grateful for anything we were given. We tried to take that perspective no matter what. ‘It’s not our money, no matter what, we’re going to make the best of whatever it is.'” (quotes courtesy of Fightful.com)
