Scarlett: I Thought WWE Training Could Turn Anyone Into A Great Wrestler, But It's Not Possible

Scarlett Bordeaux didn't have a televised match in NXT, but did spend plenty of time training at the WWE Performance Center.

Scarlett wrestled a dark match ahead of the June 25, 2021 episode of WWE SmackDown and there were plans to use her as a wrestler on the main roster, but she wasn't medically cleared.

Speaking on Keepin It 100, Scarlett discussed her training at the WWE Performance Center and why it wasn't what she thought it was going to be.

"I didn't expect...there were a few things that surprised me. On the good side, the women's locker room was one of the best women's locker rooms I've ever been in. NXT, the women's locker room, everyone was super supportive of each other. After the women's matches, we'd be standing by the curtain, applauding, hugging each other for doing a great job. It was a great environment in that way," she said, giving a positive to her time at NXT.

Scarlett continued by saying, "The thing that surprised me though, I thought the training would be a bit different. I had some good training and I had some bad training. I thought it was going to be a very organized system and they would have had a perfect way to get anyone from zero to become a great wrestler, but maybe that's not the trainer's fault. A lot of times, you take people who are professional athletes, football players, models, and it's really hard to make these people good wrestlers if they don't actually love and care about wrestling. Maybe the trainers get a hard time for that. I thought they were going to be able to turn anyone into a great wrestler and I don't think that's possible after being there. Some of the best training I got was on the Independent scene. Everyone who is in WWE would be better for it if they spent a little time training on the Indies. You get something different from training on the Indies. There was a lot of great trainers Scotty (2 Hotty), (Brian) Kendrick are amazing. There are a lot of really good trainers, but I'm so happy I spent all the time on the Indies instead of going straight there and didn't train from scratch."

Scarlett was released by WWE on November 4.
