Jazz reveals what WWE told her when she was released

Former WWE star and current NWA World Women’s Champion Jazz was recently interviewed on Women’s Wrestling Weekly. Jazz discussed her lawsuit against WWE, racism in wrestling, her matches with Trish Stratus, her WWE release, and much more. Here are the highlights:

Her lawsuit against WWE: 

“Yes, I really can’t discuss that right now. There is news. It could be good or it could be bad.”

Racism in professional wrestling: 

“I wouldn’t say I had experienced it. But, honestly with my ability and my way of work… if I were blonde hair and blue eyed, I would probably still be on TV now.”

Her matches with Trish Stratus:

“Trish and I had a phenomenal feud. I mean she was the type of person that no matter what I put on her she got her ass back up and we did our thing. She was great at taking that ass whopping.”

What she was told upon her WWE release:

“They called us to the back and said, ‘we were wrestling too much like men.’ I thought, well that’s the end of my career.”

Does she think she’d be with WWE if she had blonde hair and blue eyes:

“If I wasn’t in the company, I would be a part of the company. Because right now today, I still have no clue of why I was released. I’m championed one day and released the next day.”

WWE promoting African American wrestlers:

“I don’t think they (WWE) knows how to market African Americans. I was a champion and I’ve never had an action figure. They did the screening and scanning and said my action figure is in high demand and I never saw it.”
