From the wording of her most recent tweet, it sounds like she asked to leave. And you can’t blame her.
I put her desire to leave WWE solely down to the utter tediousness of NXT. She trotted out obediently, week after week, claiming the rag-tag band of no-hopers on show as her very own rookies (imagine the shame!).
Then Matt Striker, incompetent that he is, gradually started to usurp her presenting time, as she moved into a mostly decorative role in an increasingly awful array of outfits, and stupid love storylines with Yoshi blinkin’ Tatsu and freakin’ Hornswoggle.
She’s been off after an operation over the summer, but knowing you’ve got to go back to NXT can’t hasten your recovery time.
So in conclusion, if NXT didn’t suck so very hard, Maryse would still be a Diva. I believe this to be fact.
