McKenzie Mitchell Discusses Her Recent Release From WWE

McKenzie Mitchell was let go by WWE last month, which shocked several members of the WWE and NXT Universe as well as NXT executive Shawn Michaels. Mitchell recently appeared on an episode of Insight With Chris Van Vliet, where she talked about a number of topics including her release from the company.

Mitchell said, “I’m good. You know, now that the dust has settled, it’s a blessing. I think that there is so many new beginnings and I’m excited to see what comes in the future. The outreach and the support that I’ve gotten from friends, family, co-workers, colleagues, production, executives in WWE, the fans most importantly, have just been — it’s been insane. That’s what made me emotional when i got released was being able to hear from everyone how much i impacted their opinion when watching WWE and watching NXT. That’s what made me emotional, hearing from all of the people about their favorite moments in my career and the favorite interviews that I’ve done. The magic that was created on screen, that made such a big impact on me, to see what I made on them.”

She also talked about what she will be focused on going forward.

“I think this is a way to say that there is a new beginning in everything and just kind of, ‘Okay, what’s next?’ Like i said, I have my jewelry business so I’ve been putting all my efforts into that and my creativity there, it’s almost my full time. My husband still works within the company obviously, so that’s really interesting that he’s still there, I’m not. I don’t know if people know, but we were the first couple on the announce table, like announcer and announcer that are married. I’m of course still supportive of WWE and NXT and I still watch him and text him good luck before every show. My friends are still there, so I’m still supportive regardless.”
