Former WWE Diva Talks About How Batista Got Her Fired, Her New Passion

Josh Isenberg

BatistaShelly Martinez talked to VOC Nation as part of their one year anniversary in the cloud, giving fans insight into what her own podcast is all about, but also some inside information that fans may not know about her exit from WWE. You can hear the entire anniversary show at http://vocnation.com.

On Batista Getting her Fired from WWE:

“Batista and I had an aggressive conversation backstage and he said something that were unnecessary and uncalled for. If it was outside of wrestling, I’m pretty sure it could have been a legal problem for both Batista and WWE. But this is wrestling, and it’s a man’s business, so I fired back and they fired me. I was just a vampire girl in the fake ECW; he was Batista, and they wanted to accommodate him.”

On her Passion for Radio:

“I’ve always wanted to do radio. Podcasts are the new way of radio. 4 years ago, I started the show Funtime Radio with my sister Danielle, and we always had a vision for it, but we didn’t know how to quite make it happen. One thing we wanted to do was team up with a network like VOC Nation and make it more (of a success). People are afraid sometimes to speak their true minds, and we’re not afraid to say what’s on our mind and share our true stories. It’s really cool to be able to give all sides of me (not just wrestling) to VOC Nation listeners.”
