Taya Valkyrie used to be known as Franky Monet in NXT, WWE’s developmental territory, until recent memory. She was among those in NXT who met their release on November 4th. Now she is celebrating that freedom.

The former Franky Monet posted a revealing swimsuit photo where she had a passive look on her face. Her caption proclaimed her independence, and how wild Taya still is despite her short stint in WWE.


Taya Valkyrie has a 30-day non-compete clause with WWE. She will be free to go elsewhere once that time is over. WWE used “budget cuts” as the reason for all of those releases despite what the underlying reason actually was.


Valkyrie’s release was especially unfortunate, because she had just moved from California to the Orlando, Florida area so she could be closer to WWE’s Performance Center.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
