Scarlett Bordeaux: "I Felt Content At WWE, But Now I Feel Joy And Excitement"

Scarlett Bordeaux's schedule is a lot busier now that she's no longer with WWE.

On November 4, Scarlett and Karrion Kross (her partner on-screen and in real life) were released by the WWE after two years with the company. After being one of the top acts in NXT, Kross was called up to Raw in July 2021, but Scarlett was inexplicably no longer by his side. In fact, she wouldn't be seen on the main roster at all during those final four months.

During a recent autograph signing/virtual meet and greet with The Asylum Wrestling Store, Scarlett shared that she was quite bored during her final half-year with WWE, saying that she now feels joy and excitement.

"You know, I wasn't stressed because NXT was awesome, it really was," she began by saying. "But, I was quite bored for the last six months. Obviously, I wasn't doing very much. I'm excited for the first time in a really long time and I'm happy and I feel joy. I felt content at WWE, but now I feel joy and excitement."

During her two years with WWE, Scarlett only competed in the ring once, losing a dark match to Shotzi on June 25, 2021. She shared that she was hired specifically to be a manager but expected it to evolve into a wrestling role. She said the following:

"So, I always wanted to be able to do everything, but managing has always been my favorite thing. Originally I was hired specifically to be a manager, which I was super excited about. Then I was always open to doing everything. I love bumping, I love wrestling and naturally throughout every place I've worked at, eventually it transitions into wrestling. I feel like that happened with every female manager at WWE so I just kind of naturally expected that to happen. Then when it started to come up earlier this year that I was going to start wrestling, I was like, 'Cool. Let's do it. Hell yeah.' So that's kind of how it happened."

Though she didn't speak too much about her release, noting that she has an interview with Renee Paquette coming up in which she'll go into detail, Scarlett did share her initial reaction to the news of her release, saying she went from being angry to excited quickly.

"So, the night I got the call we were together and he [Kross] was actually dropping me off at the airport. My first reaction was pretty pissed because I was like, 'We're awesome.' That's how I felt. 'We're awesome. We got all the boxed marked off.' I'm confident in what we can do and what our worth is. But then I got really excited and confident. People compared the way I was typing on Twitter to a girl that had just been broken up with, like, 'I'm going to get super hot and successful and make you guys jealous,' and I felt like, hell yeah, let's do everything I want to do now and everything I wasn't allowed to do. I got to do a magazine cover that's coming up. All these photoshoots and signings and within two days my entire December was booked, so it went from being pissed to excited and not once did I cry. I thought that at least at one point I'd be really devastated but that has not happened once. I've just gone from pissed the first night to excited and happy," Scarlett said.
