Summer Rae has finally opened up on her departure from the WWE.
Many people know that Rae, Emma, and Darren Young was released by the sports entertainment company earlier this week. This was a shock to many fans, to say the least.
Before she became a WWE superstar, she played the Chicago Bliss of the Legends Football League. In 2011, she signed a contract with WWE and was assigned to their developmental territory Florida Championship Wrestling.
Rae made her televised debut on the December 18 episode of FCW TV by appearing in an in-ring promo with Abraham Washington. Moving along to 2013, Rae competed in the NXT Women's Championship tournament on the June 19 episode of NXT to crown the inaugural champion and defeated Sasha Banks in the first round.
However, she lost to Emma in the semi-finals on July 10. Rae made her official debut on WWE's main roster on the April 22, 2013, episode of Raw, as Fandango's dance partner and valet.
Rae never won a title both on the main roster and in NXT. The sports entertainment company went back and forth with her as a manager and wrestler. Rae was drafted to Raw as part of the 2016 WWE draft. However, she never appeared for the brand due to injuries.
Summer Rae issued the following statement on her Instagram account about her WWE departure:
"They say you'll never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory. Well that wasn't true in this situation. I knew the value of this moment, I knew the magnitude of this moment. I hear some of you say "but you didn't become champ", "you didn't get the push you deserved", "you didn't get a title run". But see, I got MY title. I became a WWE Diva.
In this picture above, my in ring debut on TV, I knew the value of that moment. In that moment I became a WWE Diva. I could take a small, very small breath of relief because I did it! For so many years I dreamt of stepping onto that main stage of Monday Night Raw & then getting into that ring with these strong, beautiful, smart & courageous women. I wanted to be one of them. I knew I could be one of them! I felt it SO deep down in my heart. Once it happened I of course set more goals for myself within the company & trained harder to reach them.
But the people that flood my comments with these things that I 'should have' gotten -- you guys are missing the overall dream that I achieved. That I went to Monday Night RAW as a fan & sat in the crowd & watched the girls & wanted that more than anything I had ever felt in my body ever before.
Then, I did it. I did it. 😊 I've wrestled in over 15 countries on 4 continents & made friends in fans all over the world. I have had the opportunity to live out my dream! And that is because God blessed me with obtaining my dream through hard work & determination.
So please don't fight with one another about me & start boards about Justice for Summer Rae. Know that I DID IT! I am a WWE Diva, a WWE Superstar. And no one will ever be able to take that away from me! ❤️"
