Joey Ryan And Velvet Sky Share Their Experiences As WWE Extras; Sky Claims She Was Seen As A Threat

Both Velvet Sky and Joey Ryan share their respective experiences.

It is the norm in professional wrestling for enhancement talents to be brought in to further highlight a wrestler that a company and/or promotion wants to further expose. Some of the current stars in the business today who are already established worked as enhancement talents such as IMPACT Wrestling star Scarlett Bordeaux. Scarlett worked as an enhancement talent for Nia Jax on an episode of RAW in 2016. Eli Everfly appeared on episode[s] of WWE SmackDown and 205 Live as an enhancement talent and even picked up a victory on the blue-brand exclusive show.

Joey Ryan and Velvet Sky commented on their experiences as extras in WWE but their experiences were not positive. Ryan shared on Twitter that WWE wrestlers were told that "indie wrestlers" were coming for their jobs so they were indirectly instructed to treat said performer lesser than they would a fellow WWE superstar which earned a response from Lance Storm:

Former two-time TNA Knockouts Champion Velvet Sky chimed in and added that she was seen as a threat amongst the women of WWE and was kicked out of the locker room and had to change in the men's bathroom when she worked as an extra for the sports-entertainment company.
