'Alpha Female' Jazzy Gabert Was Disappointed That She Was Not A Part Of The Mae Young Classic II

Jazzy has been in contact with WWE.

Alpha Female Jazzy Gabert has been making waves on the professional wrestling scene since 2001 when she began her career. The former World Of STARDOM Champion has competed in the United States, Japan, her home-country of Germany and in the United Kingdom. It was in December of 2017 after her run in the inaugural Mae Young Classic that she was set to be signed by WWE but Jazzy says that the company rescinded her contract because she failed medical tests which revealed that she had three herniated discs in her neck. She had successful neck surgery earlier this year and was given the green light by doctors to return to the ring and during a recent interview with Mirror Sport, Gabert provided an update on how she has been doing physically.

"Yeah, it was super successful. Before it, I always had this pain. My shoulder and my neck were always sore and I thought it was normal pain for a wrestler." She said. "I never thought there would be anything bad behind it. When I was told my neck was so bad that I had three herniated discs, everything made sense. Then I had the surgery and from the second day after surgery until now, I've been pain free. It's a great life. It’s amazing, it was definitely successful."

Jazzy did tune into the 2018 Mae Young Classic tournament and was disappointed that she did not get the callback because there were a number of competitors in this year's tournament that she wanted to mix it up with.

"Of course, I watched it and yes, I was little bit upset not being there at the second Mae Young Classic but there is a reason behind that. After I competed in the first Mae Young Classic, I got the offer from WWE and had a contract in my hand. I went to do the medical check-up but failed the medical tests. I had a really bad neck and understood I wouldn't be medically cleared to compete, and I totally understand it because WWE wants the best for their athletes." She continued, "They're not reckless. Of course, it was upsetting. I watched it with a happy and a sad eye. There were a lot of people in it I admire like Meiko Satamura, Killer Kelly, Io Shirai and Toni Storm. They’re my friends and I love them, so I was happy for them but of course sad, as it was a great memory, which I wanted to repeat."


Jazzy Gabert also talked about the recent WWE tryouts in Germany that she was a part of and the brief exchange she had with WWE Hall Of Famer Shawn Michaels backstage at the 2017 Mae Young Classic. To read more, click here.
