During an appearance on Ring The Belle, former WWE diva Kristal Marshall discussed her belief that she was released from the WWE due to a perception that she was difficult to work with. Here’s what she had to say:
I wanted to get more information on [the Teddy Long storyline]. I couldn’t for whatever reason. I didn’t know anything about the Edge storyline. They were keeping a lot under wraps from me. I inquired about what was going on, and I think sometimes what I’ve learned through life is when you’re a woman and you’re outspoken, and you’re an advocate for yourself, you get labeled as difficult.
You get labeled as hard to work with and people don’t like that. Unfortunately, I am not a fall-in-line kind of person. I’m gonna speak my mind, and I feel like the problem with up is that I was just starting to get to know the higher-ups on a more personal level and It was bad timing on my part.
I should have probably gone more with the flow and just waited until I built more of a relationship to voice some of my concerns. And ultimately that worked against me. Sometimes you do have to shut the f–k up, and just wait until you can get to the next position to where you can speak it up for yourself.
