Velvet Sky Explains Why WWE Never Signed Her, Talks Being Retired and More

Velvet Sky spoke with the Press Slam Podcast along with Angelina Love about why they never signed with WWE, Velvet being retired from the ring and more.

Highlights are below per Wrestling Inc:

On being retired from the ring:

“I am retired from in-ring action, but that doesn’t mean that there’s not a non-wrestling role for me in The Beautiful People out there still. Slammiversary was really, really good… the talent killed it. And I feel like a Ring of Honor, Impact [Wrestling], this is just my opinion, like Ring of Honor or Impact Wrestling type of company is more of my personal flavor than WWE. WWE, it’s just not the same love that I once had of the company. So, I feel like an Impact Wrestling, Ring Of Honor type of role would be more of my personal style or flavor. That’s just me.”

On why she never signed with WWE:

“This is like the million dollar question: How come The Beautiful People were never in the WWE. Well, it’s because [WWE] wanted to create their own version of what is already out there that they see that works. And, The Beautiful People, Angelina and I, we would never want The Beautiful People to be tainted or twisted or anything that I feel WWE would try to do to us if we were ever there. We would never be allowed to be The Beautiful People. The entrance? Forget it. We’d never be able to let the pigeons loose there. It wouldn’t work there, and like I said, they’ve created their own version of The Beautiful People, so they even knew that we worked.”

On WWE’s versions of the Beautiful People:

“Back when we were still in TNA, it was LayCool, and now it’s the IIconics. It’s the same kind of mean, ‘I’m better than you’, the whispering, the pointing, the laughing, the humiliating. I mean, especially in the middle of our Beautiful People peak is when they created LayCool. They were kinda doing the similar antics, the humiliating the girls, the heel role. I mean, it’s very flattering, I must say it’s flattering that what we have is such high demand that they tried to take the ball and gave it to the girls that are there now.”

    She is almost as much of egomaniac as her db boyfriend

  2. Jackson Slasher says:

    I wasn’t aware WWE wanted her…..

  3. Havok says:

    Shes not wrong though. Laycool came way after the beautiful people

  4. Simba says:

    I think she’s overlooked the likelihood that WWE never wanted her because she was barely-passable as an in-ring performer, who had no name value until she was in her 30’s in TNA and is remembered solely for her willingness to shake her backside for the camera during her entrance…

  5. Squirt Angle says:

    Did she write this when logged on to the wifi at Sunglasshut? Seriously, she is pretending. WWE should have reached out to her – and if they did, she would have accepted. Her financial situation before makes me believe they did not and despite whatever that reason was she seems to be giving an imagined story
