Vanessa Borne Says WWE Release Came As "A Shock"; Takes A Shot At WRESTLEMANIA BACKLASH Zombies

Vanessa Borne was recently released by WWE along with several other Superstars, and the former NXT performer has now released a statement thanking her fans and taking a little dig at those zombies!

Amid rumors that some significant NXT cuts might be imminent, WWE recently released Alexander Wolfe, Jessamyn Duke, Kavita Devi, Skyler Story, Ezra Judge and Vanessa Borne from their contracts.

There were a few surprises here, but Borne was arguably the biggest since she was moved up from the black and gold brand a few months ago, which obviously suggested that the powers that be had plans for her on the main roster.

Now, Borne has released a statement, thanking fans for their support and revealing that her release did come as "a shock." She also used the opportunity to take a little jab at the zombies we saw at the WrestleMania Backlash event.

“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,” Borne said. “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 f****** suck. Be nice. It shouldn’t be that hard to be a decent human being to someone you don’t even know.”

Borne is a very talented wrestler so we're sure she'll show up in another company sooner or later, but it's a shame that her WWE journey has come to an end for now.
