How does Ruby feel to be released from WWE?
Ruby has been open about her release and took her Instagram to pour her heart out. Here is what her Instagram post looks like:
“Well… here it goes. I’ve never been good at this sort of stuff. Yesterday in a matter of minutes, my life changed very drastically. But after some tears, some panic, and a full box of Oreos, I was able to look back at how lucky I’ve been to accomplish what have,” she wrote.
“I never thought I’d make it to WWE. I’ve been honored to be a part of a Squad of the most incredible women I’ve ever met, I’ve gotten to see the world, share locker rooms with some of the most talented women I know, some of which I’ve made lifelong friendships with. I’ve gotten to meet fans that were just like me, introverted kids, who never quite felt like they fit in. And between the locker room and those fans, I felt like I belonged and I’m so grateful for that feeling.
“With that, I am overwhelmed by the amount of calls/texts/tweets and support that I have received from former coworkers, friends, family, and fans. Thank you so much for the kind words. You’ll never know how much it helped. As for what’s next….in the beginning, “Heidi Lovelace” was given to me, at the end “Ruby Riott” was taken away. So I don’t know what I’ll be called or where I’ll end up. But please know this is far from over. Thank you.”

Ruby got the chance to sign up for WWE in 2016 after some individual work. Her debut happened at NXT on Match 22d. She attacked Nikki Cross and the rest of Sanity with Tye Dillinger, No Way Jose, and Roderick Strong. Later she formed a group alongside Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan. The trio is known as The Riott Squad and they were booked for many matches. However, the group has to disband later as Ruby was drafted to Smackdown.
