Her friend and tag partner Liv Morgan already offered a spot on assessment of the wrestling world after WWE released Ruby Riott (whose real name is Dori Prange, and who will now presumably return wrestling as Heidi Lovelace).
The leader of the women’s locker room followed up with more great stories that explain why Riott was reportedly so important to her colleagues at WWE. And Bayley’s tweet led to more tweets praising the 30 year old Midwesterner.
She always made me feel so welcomed whenever I was around her. It meant so much to me. Truly a lovely soul— Indi Wrestling (@indi_hartwell) June 2, 2021
One of the good ones.— The HBIC (@MiaYim) June 2, 2021
That one really freaking stung. It’s gonna be one hell of a Lovelace world ❤️— Tegan Nox (@TeganNoxWWE_) June 2, 2021
It’s not just WWE, either. Lovelace is well loved all around the industry:
You’re going to see a lot of tweets from people saying they’d happily wrestle Heidi Lovelace 400 days a week for the rest of their careers and yep here’s another one— Veda Scott (@itsvedatime) June 2, 2021
I will say this loud and I will say this often: Heidi Lovelace is one of my favourite opponents I’ve ever stepped in the ring with, and an all time great babyface. I highly recommend any wrestler to study her, specifically for her fire and selling.— Nicole Matthews (@nmatthewsninja) June 2, 2021
The world now belongs to Heidi Lovelace/@RubyRiottWWE.— Bryce Remsburg (@dabryceisright) June 2, 2021
We’re simply living in it.
Heidi is the only one of the six wrestlers released today (June 2) who has yet to comment on the move. She’s probably processing all the support she’s getting.
We’ll keep you posted on that, and on where she takes her first booking. By all accounts, it certainly seems like she’ll have her choice of landing spots once her 90 day non-compete is up.
