Angelina Love on Impact departure

Chris Featherstone of Pancakes and Powerslams interviewed Angelina Love recently where he talked about her departure from Impact Wrestling earlier this year.

Love also addressed her scheduled WWE debut getting pulled from Smackdown.

On her Impact Wrestling departure:

“Once [Davey Richards and I] had our blow-off match, the writing was on the wall, and I’m just at a point in my life where I’m a mother, I’ve been with Impact for 10 years. I saw where it was going, and it just was not something that I [was interested in]. Use me full force, because I’m worth it, or I gotta go. I know my worth.”

On her planned WWE debut getting cut from Smackdown:

“I was literally sitting, planted in the crowd, with my debut segment on SmackDown next, and I got pulled. My segment got completely cut out, and the people I was supposed to work with went straight into a completely different storyline. In 2006, there were talks about doing something with JBL, but that never happened… then I had gone back up to SmackDown in August of that year, to do something with Matt Hardy. I was standing there, so happy and clapping, and he would [come over] and say, ‘who’s this blonde girl?’, and eventually I would end up being his girlfriend. We’re like minutes, if not less, of my segment starting, and the guy, the floor manager who planted me, patted me on the shoulder, pulled me over and said ‘your segment got cut.’ [Eventually] I was told that as soon as the show started, Vince rewrote the whole show.”
