Jazz Talks Racism In Professional Wrestling, What WWE Told Her When She Was Released, More

Current NWA World Women’s Champion and former WWE Women’s Champion Jazz was recently interviewed by Women’s Wrestling Weekly. During the interview she talked about her pending lawsuit with WWE, racism in professional wrestling, her feud with Trish Stratus and being released from WWE.

Her lawsuit with WWE:

“Yes, I really can’t discuss that right now. There is news. It could be good or it could be bad.”

Racism in professional wrestling:

“I wouldn’t say I had experienced it. But, honestly with my ability and my way of work… if I were blonde hair and blue eyed, I would probably still be on TV now.”

Trish Stratus:

“Trish and I had a phenomenal feud. I mean she was the type of person that no matter what I put on her she got her ass back up and we did our thing. She was great at taking that ass whopping.”

Being released from WWE:

“They called us to the back and said, ‘we were wrestling too much like men.’ I thought, well that’s the end of my career.”

Would she still be with WWE if she had blonde hair and blue eyes:

“If I wasn’t in the company, I would be a part of the company. Because right now today, I still have no clue of why I was released. I’m championed one day and released the next day.”

WWE not knowing how to market African Americans:

“I don’t think they (WWE) knows how to market African Americans. I was a champion and I’ve never had an action figure. They did the screening and scanning and said my action figure is in high demand and I never saw it.”
