Maxine Confirms Departure From WWE, Not Wrestling Again



Maxine confirmed rumors of her departure from WWE via Twitter Friday.

“We have come to terms on my release. Its been a ride I want to thank WWE for the experience and understanding on my feelings,” Maxine wrote. “Its not easy saying goodbye. But there are other options at wich I can do. To my fans you may not see me on the WWE screen but on another(;.”

She continues, “I want to do nothing but get the real chance to entertain all of you…sometimes you have to make that chance for yourself!!

“I want to take all of you with me…so I hope you all understand why i made my decision.”

Maxine also says she has no plans to continue wrestling.

She clarified, “Im not going to another wrestling company that is not in my plans!!! I didnt ask for my release to go to another company.”

According to PWInsider.com, Maxine quit WWE due to frustrations with “not being offered a guaranteed deal and not having the chance to prove herself on TV beyond the WWE NXT level.” Her profile, however, remains on the company website and no official announcement concerning her status has been made.

Maxine, whose real name is Karlee Perez, joined WWE as a developmental talent in 2009. After learning the ropes in Florida Championship Wrestling, she was promoted to NXT for the Diva-exclusive third season. She returned to the program in August and became involved in a love triangle with Derrick Bateman and Johnny Curtis.
