Shaul Guerrero Talks About Leaving WWE In 2012 Due To An Eating Disorder

Former WWE NXT Diva Shaul “Raquel Diaz” Guerrero was released from the company earlier this year for unknown reasons but it was her second departure as she left on her own back in 2012. She recently told about why she left the first time:

“Actually, I went into rehab for an eating disorder. I was really close to Joey Mercury when I was in FCW, he was my mentor/coach. He ,along with the strength and conditioning coach, noticed that I was really sick and I was just not mentally okay and physically doing a really bad job of doing what I needed to do and they finally convinced me to go into rehab for a long time disease I had.

I took two months off and stayed in an (rehab) facility and from then on, I didn’t know how to come back to wrestling and still keep my recovery intact because this business is very much based on how you look. I was just not ready for that kind of challenge so I took a whole year off and really focused on myself and really needed to get health mentality, emotionally and spiritually.”
