Jordynne Grace claimed it is one thing to not renew someone’s contract, and it is another thing to move someone to an unfamiliar area, and release the person just months after they have signed the contract.

This tweet was a kind of reference to Jordynne Grace’s former colleague, Franky Monet. Franky Monet (known as Taya Valkyrie in Impact Wrestling) and Jordynne Grace share a good bond, irrespective of their on-screen rivalry at Impact Wrestling.

Following her signing with WWE, Monet had moved from California so that she could stay near Orlando’s WWE Performance Center. But unfortunately, she got released within a year after her signing. Not only Franky Monet but even the other superstars were released after they showed great promise on the main roster.

For example, Keith Lee just returned to Monday Night Raw a month ago with a new ‘Bearcat’ gimmick. It looked like WWE was finally ready to give Keith Lee the main event push he deserved. But unfortunately, after showing signs of promise over the last month, even Keith Lee got released recently.

Franky Monet had a short WWE career

If you are a pro wrestling fan, you would definitely know how good a wrestler Franky Monet is. Before signing with WWE, Franky Monet impressed fans all over the world with her dominant performances at Impact Wrestling.

Franky Monet signed a contract with WWE on February 14, 2021. Just a week later, she started training at the WWE Performance Center. At NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver, WWE even aired a promo announcing the arrival of Franky Monet on NXT.

There was a lot of hype around Franky Monet’s NXT debut; Monet made her NXT debut by interrupting Dakota Kai and Raquel Gonzalez.

To be fair, Monet was pretty impressive since her debut. She defeated Cora Jade, Elektra Lopez, and Jacy Jayne in her first few matches.

Her impressive performances even earned her a shot at the NXT Women’s Championship against Raquel Gonzalez. However, unfortunately for Franky, she lost to Raquel Gonzalez. Since then, Monet’s WWE career has been on a decline because of the lack of opportunities.
