That’s a serious problem. This week’s WWE releases shook up the company all over again and there are a lot of wrestlers now getting ready to look for work. That is not the kind of thing that a lot of people expected to happen and it can have some pretty rough ramifications on several wrestlers. It turns out that one of them has a unique problem to deal with after being released.
Katrina Cortez was one of the wrestlers released from the company on Thursday. Cortez is originally from Chile and is not an American citizen. Now that she has been released from her WWE contract, she has announced that her work visa expires in thirty days, meaning that she will be forced to leave the country. Cortez debuted for WWE in 2019 and has mainly been used on NXT.
At 18 I made the decision to travel to an unknown country, without knowing English I came here… today I receive an email telling me that my visa expires next month and I will have to sell everything that with much love and effort I have achieved.

Cortez did have some time in WWE. Check out what she did in the company:
Opinion: This is one of those situations that doesn’t really have a simple solution. I can understand WWE’s side of things as Cortez was hardly a major star and they felt the need to cut a lot of people, but at the same time, it’s awful that Cortez has to leave what she has built here because of a decision that was beyond her control. Hopefully she gets another chance again, as she didn’t do anything wrong to cause all of this.
What did you think of Cortez in WWE? Where would be the best fit for her? Let us know in the comments below.
