WWE released several employees, including WWE Superstars, over the past several months. This recent trend jumpstarted on April 15th, the same day that they axed several people last year. The IIconics and more were a part of those cuts.

Peyton Royce and Billie Kay were released back in April. Many fans were shocked at this outcome as they still had a lot of potential. Royce, who now goes by the name Cassie Lee, still seems to be feeling the effects of her release from the company. While speaking to Chris Van Vliet, Cassie Lee talked about her WWE release.

Cassie Lee revealed that her release from the company broke Lee’s heart and also stole her love for pro wrestling.

“Being let go really broke my heart, and for a long while it kind of took my love. It stole my love of wrestling. And I would love to get that back and not move on with my life with this bitter feeling about wrestling. I still get emotional about it. But I know one day I will get over those circumstances and not let it affect me like it does now.”


We will have to wait and see what is next in store for Cassie Lee now that she is no longer working in WWE. Cassie Lee and Jessica Kay are having visa issues right now, but you also never know when those could be resolved after a company vouches for them.
