Two weeks ago Shelly Martinez (a/k/a Ariel) was released from WWE. The reason why backstage was that she didnâ<80><99>t have the â<80><9c>right lookâ<80>. This is Vinceâ<80><99>s nice way of saying â<80><9c>youâ<80><99>re not pretty enoughâ<80>.
Vince was negative on Martinez from the very start, but was persuaded by Heyman to bring her up since she did such a good job playing the nympho role in Ohio Valley Wrestling. Vince never understood the idea of goth characters and likes divas with the â<80><9c>modelâ<80> look. With Heyman gone from the company Martinez had very little support backstage.
Some rumors circulated that she was released over an incident with Batista, however these are apparently false.
