There is a interesting story about former WWE employee Anna Bogomazova (NXT Diva Anya) in the Russian news. I will try to translate to you. She was the first Russian in WWE. In 2013 she broke her arm in a training session. During the healing process somebody from WWE called her and told her that they no longer needed her services. Anna said: “In history of WWE they never fired injured wrestlers. Usually WWE gave a second chance after injury. Even if you had a injury you continue to work there. You are visiting acting technique”. Now Anya and her lawyer want to get some money for injury and extra for damages. She had two surgeries and now she has a scar on her hand. She is trying to get in shape and dreaming about returning to the ring. They have had negotiations with WWE and if it fails then Anya is ready to go to the court. Also they had some stupid stuff in the video (an interview with her former coach) about injury. He said that she became a star in USA and took somebody’s spotlight so injury is not coincidence, it was a setup. But that part is just ridiculous because his kind of people in Russia doesn’t understand what is WWE really is. Also, and Anya never made it to TV. She was no good on mic. It was a long road anyway so I understand why they did what they did. You can watch the video by clicking here.
