WWE has released NXT women’s wrestler Zahra Schreiber after racist past behavior surfaces

Zahra Schreiber’s first national exposure after being signed by the WWE and beginning work with NXT certainly wasn’t ideal. She was the female wrestler who had nude photographs leaked from Seth Rollins’ hacked social media accounts, which was certainly quite the shocking thing to see at the time.

Things have only gotten worse for Schreiber since then, as she has now been released by WWE given recent developments:

Schreiber first began coming under scrutiny this past weekend when an Instagram post from 2012 surfaced that showed a picture featuring a swastika hanging on her wall. Then came another since deleted Instagram post featuring a pony wearing a swastika. That would have been bad enough, but days later, racist comments made in social media comments regarding Disney’s first black princess character.

Schreiber had just debuted as the valet and younger sister of Solomon Crowe at an NXT house show this weekend, but the decision to release her was inevitable. Given how WWE acted in regards to the Hulk Hogan scandal, they had no choice but to act accordingly in another instance of hate-speech.

While it’s certainly disgusting to see this type of behavior in this day and age, it’s good to see WWE not making exceptions and acting strongly and decisively when situations arise.
