2022 was definitely a redefining period for Taya Valkyrie. After a failed stint in WWE, she went across the world, competing in other promotions to emerge as a big star. However, she recently spoke about not being sure whether to return to WWE in the future.
Taya Valkyrie spent nearly 11 years of her career, wrestling for many companies on the independent circuit, namely IMPACT Wrestling, Lucha Libre AA, Lucha Underground, and MLW, before making her grand arrival in WWE NXT in 2021.
Taya Valkyrie made her NXT debut under the ring name Franky Monet. She was brought in to become one of the top attractions of WWE’s developmental brand. However, despite being built up strong, Valkyrie was released from WWE in November 2021 as a part of the massive layoffs by the company.
The former IMPACT Knockouts champion went on a tear, following her WWE release, having a complete career resurgence in 2022. Taya Valkyrie recently revealed that it could be either way, should WWE or any other company approach her with an offer. She spoke about this during an interview with Comedy Store Wrestling.
“I don’t know. I’m in a really good place right now, personally and professionally. I feel comfortable, I feel challenged, I feel heard, I feel appreciated, stuff like that. My experience was so bizarre, that it kind of freaks me out, the idea of thinking of going back there. But Triple H, the whole time I was there, he just loves this business so much.”
“He really is trying to put on, in the black and gold brand, something so different, and it was so evident. And now, having him at the helm of the ship so to speak. It’s great that other people are getting those opportunities again, and I hope the best for them, that they do really well, and that everyone can grow and thrive and make money. … You never say never. I would have a conversation. Why not?”
Taya Valkyrie continues to perform for various promotions on the independent circuit, including Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide, where she is the current AAA Reina de Reinas Champion. It is yet to be seen what the future holds for Valkyrie as the new year kicks off with huge changes in the wrestling world.
