It was revealed earlier this week that WWE released NXT Rachael Ellering, Rachel Evers in WWE NXT, back in April as part of the mass talent and staff cuts due budget cuts.
Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Ellering talked with WWE officials about having issues with the medical team as well as medical procedures a few months back.
At the time, Ellering got reconstructive knee surgery and was recovering from it. Per the report, her complaints about the medical team and their procedures were not received well, which ultimately led to her departure.
She was given two options a few weeks back, but what those options were wasn’t mentioned. However, both of them had her get released in the end. It was noted that she chose one of the options before getting released.
The former NXT star has made it known in interviews that she was interested in leaving WWE on her own before the release.
Evers, the daughter of the legendary manager Paul Ellering, worked the first two Mae Young Classic tournaments. She signed with NXT in January 2019.
