The couple’s act was huge over in NXT but in July Karrion was moved to WWE’s Raw brand without Scarlett by his side.
Now, speaking on Renee Paquette’s Oral Sessions podcast, Scarlett explained why she didn’t join Karrion on Raw, revealing that she wasn’t medically cleared due to an issue with one of her breast implants.
“I wasn’t medically cleared yet,” Scarlett told Renee. “I was having matches before Raw and SmackDown because they wanted me to wrestle. After the second match, everything was going great, I get home and look in the mirror and I’m like, ‘One of these doesn’t look like the other’.
“The next day was NXT and I immediately go to medical and I’m like, ‘Hey, I’m not sure if I’m going crazy or if [my boobs] always looked like this. Maybe I’m just tired.’
“With the adrenaline from wrestling, you don’t notice certain things hurt all the time, so I didn’t think anything of it,” Scarlett continued. “I went to medical and they were like, ‘Yes, one of your boobs is totally gone.'”
Scarlett went on to say that she wanted to join Karrion on Raw as his manager but was told to stay off TV until she was cleared to wrestle.
“I was like, ‘I can get the surgery and can manage and be ringside, that’s no problem, I just can’t wrestle right away.'” Scarlett added. “The plan was, I guess for me to wrestle. So they were like, ‘When you’re totally clear, you’re gonna wrestle.’
“They scrapped all the managing stuff at that point and I was sitting at home for those last four months just waiting.”
Following the news of her release last month, Scarlett tweeted: “Officially free to work in 30 days!”. Since her 30 day non-competed ended, Scarlett has wrestled on the US indie scene as well as launching an OnlyFans account.
