Vanessa Borne was among a handful of WWE releases made on Wednesday, May 19.
Borne hadn't wrestled since she competed at an NXT live event in January 2020.
Fightful Select reported that Vanessa Borne had actually been called up to the WWE main roster in early 2020, but never debuted for either Raw or Smackdown, and had not been a regular at television tapings during the pandemic. Chelsea Green told Fightful that an idea was pitched for the two to be joined by Santana Garrett in a stable.
Taking to Twitter, Borne posted a video commenting on her release.
"Today, I got the call that I will no longer be a WWE superstar, which came as quite a shock to me considering all the work I've done these past 18 months. I want to thank the WWE for the opportunity these past five years, it's been a fun ride. I also want to give a shout out to all the people and fans who have supported me throughout my wrestling career, your kind words never went unnoticed. To all of the haters and Twitter trolls, I want to thank you guys as well. You really motivated me and lit a fire within me. Just kidding. You people fucking suck. Be nice. It shouldn't be that hard to be a decent human being to someone you don't even know [blows a kiss]. I'm really excited for this next chapter of my life and really excited to fully express myself. There are so many 'do's and don't' and faux pas in the wrestling business and I feel like I finally don't have to worry about what Captain Insano said in 2007 or if another one of my visionary ideas is going to be given to someone else. I can just be myself. I have no hard feelings and no animosity, just a lot of good energy and love. I feel good walking into this next chapter and I hope you are all there to witness it. Oh, one thing I am disappointed that I didn't get to do in the WWE and that's....wrestle zombies, shucks," she sarcastically said.
