Dasha Fuentes Says WWE Fired Her For "A Series Of Events"

WWE's roster shakeup isn't limited to wrestlers and backstage employees, Dasha Fuentes was let go, as well.

In a surprising move, Fuentes was cut from WWE after five years with the company shortly after WrestleMania. When speaking to Chris Van Vliet of WSVN-TV, she recalled being notified of her termination and the ominous explanation in which she was provided.

"My manager at the time told me I was being released. I don't want to name too many names but my manager called me and that was another thing, they called me on a Tuesday and I was told 'After the events that occurred on Monday Night Raw, we are taking you off TV and you're not going to WrestleMania'. I literally went back and I watched the interview and there a tiny little blip that happened but it was live, it was with Roman and I figured it was a pretty good interview and I could see the growth and consistency that was happening from week to week. So I was like 'Series of events?' and I was just taken aback. I figured I would relax and not freak out about this, maybe they're going to send me back to NXT because a lot of people don't know that I ring announced for NXT and that's my passion, I love ring announcing. I was told I'd get a call the next week and told what was going on. Well, the following Monday after WrestleMania I got a call that lasted literally like a minute and a half and they said 'We're letting you go' and I was like 'Well, thanks for 5 years.' and that's it," said Fuentes.

Despite being let go by WWE, Fuentes noted that she's moved on. She seemed to have positive memories assoicated with her time there.

"I actually feel really good. It was a shock being let go by them but it's not the end of the world. It's crazy because I dedicated 5 years of my life to them and I was injured last year for a good chunk of it. I got injured July 27th and had surgery August 3rd and I still managed to work over 115 shows. I'm an optimist. I truly enjoyed working for the company, I was able to travel to 47 out of 50 states. I got to see all kinds of different towns that I never imagined," said Fuentes.
