Shotzi Blackheart has not been seen on WWE television since the Royal Rumble, but there is no heat on her at all. A report is out there that claims she got in a bit of trouble over social media, but we have to shut that down.
Ringside News ran an exclusive yesterday saying that Shotzi hasn’t been on television, because she wasn’t in the “WrestleMania mix.” She has been backstage at television every week ready to go, and they haven’t needed her.
It has come to our attention that a previous report was released that said Shotzi got heat over social media posts. It was said that she got heat over “playing a prank” and saying that she was going to marry Brandi Lauren. Shotzi was very public about how broken up she was after Lauren was released. They are incredibly close friends and Lauren moving out of Florida was a big loss for Shotzi, but they are not in a relationship.
“There was some big heat on her when she played a prank that she was marrying one of her friends, [Brandi Lauren],” Billi Bhatti stated in his report. “They basically made out that they are lesbians and then they said, ‘oh we’re just joking we’re not really getting married or whatever and it copped a bunch of heat for being a bit immature.”
The report further stated that “since then there’s been monitoring on her social media” and some posts rubbed WWE officials the wrong way. We can confirm that this report is not accurate at all.
Ringside News was told by a tenured member of the team within WWE that this report is false. In fact, the exact quote we received was: “That’s pretty stupid. Fake news.”
Shotzi Blackheart is still with the company and could very well find her way back to television soon. That being said, Ringside News has not been able to confirm that there are any creative plans for Shotzi. We can only hope that is the case, because their women’s division could use someone with her eclectic talents.
