Peyton Royce talks meeting with Vince McMahon that ‘cost her a job’

Last updated

Former WWE Superstar Peyton Royce recently revealed a conversation that she had with WWE CEO Vince McMahon that she believes meant that she lost her job with the company.

Speaking on her and Billie Kay’s Off Her Chops podcast, the IIconic tag team member said that she may have appeared too ‘boring’ for Vince McMahon to really get behind her as a character and personality on WWE programming.

‘I had in my head what I wanted to say but he brushed it off very quickly and I went ’˜crap,’’ Peyton Royce revealed on the podcast.

‘I had an idea that I wanted to present, and he wanted to discuss other ideas” Royce added. “But I didn’t have other ideas. This is what I wanted to talk about and put my time and effort into.”

‘Vince says ’˜what do you do for fun?’ Me being me, the introvert and the homebody that I am, I had to let him know that I like to sit on the couch with my dogs and watch TV’ Royce continued.

‘[Vince] just stared at me, and in my head I’m just like, ’˜make something up’ and I couldn’t make anything up. Nothing was coming out. I’m not a liar. I feel like he could have seen right through that” Royce would noted.

“I basically said to him ’˜I’m sorry, I’m boring and I just like to be home on my off days’. I didn’t contribute much during that unfortunately and that’s probably why I lost the job” Peyton Royce would conclude.

It seems like a ridiculous reason for someone to lose their job, but it isn’t unheard of. It’s not confirmed if this is exactly what lead to Peyton Royce being released from WWE, but she seemed pretty clear on the podcast.
