Wrestlers have different ways of reacting to their release from a major company. Some take the high road and praise their time there. Some lash out. Others keep silent.

On Friday, Dana Brooke, released from WWE on Thursday, shared a very thoughtful, interesting take on her departure from the company.

Here it is:

I have tried to wrap my head around this & have written so much and deleted it so many times be no words seem to fit…

so here it goes-WWE (wrestling) has been my Fairytale, my true-love relationship. I started this 1st chapter of my Fairytale 10 years ago & I had no idea what I was getting myself into.

This world was all very brand new to me and I was leaving things that I was very comfortable with. I questioned myself a lot thinking am I doing the right thing, will I even be good at this, & will I regret everything I am leaving behind?

My answer to those questions quickly became a N0000! I fell (sic) those questions quickly became a N0000!

I fell in love with WWE..

I fell in love with wrestling, my family away from home, and every single time I went out there to perform.

I called it my drug of choice, there was no bigger rush or high in this world than performing in front of the WWE UNIVERSE & fans all around the world, it was electrifying!!

With that being said, there were always moments where I wasn’t happy with my performance or was missing my family & long lonely nights on the road. Just like a relationship, you have the best of times and the worst of times.

As years went forward THIS BUSINESS BECAME ME… I gave it my everything, it was my BECAME ME… I gave it my everything, it was my priority & my true LOVE!!!

Just like a fairytale, things happen and your world comes crashing down. That happen in 2017 when a tragedy happen & I lost a loved one.

I had two directions I could take- either bury myself in a deep hole of depression or rise to the top, & I always and will forever say WWE (WRESTLING) saved my life!

It was all I ever had… my co-workers & fans were all I ever knew for so many years and turning to wrestling was my escape!

I knew I could only push forward and never look back. 6 years later, I have accomplished so much & met so many amazing people & have strived to become better in every aspect of wrestling.

This isn’t THE END… this is moving forward to the next chapter of my fairytale.. a rocky patch In my relationship named WRESTLING- but I promise YOU ALL, I WILL KEEP GOING.. I will never let you down.. I LOVE YOU ALL… the fairytale continues… C2 -DB….
