Velvet Sky wrote, “S**t ur lucky u got the broom closet. Lol In ’06 I was invited there as an extra & a certain female wrestler had me kicked out of the divas locker room by the makeup lady & made me change in the men’s bathroom w/ a bunch of dude extras cuz I was a “threat” to her job. Fun times.”

Sky did not name the female wrestler who had her kicked out of the locker room. After a fan responded saying she is a threat, Velvet Sky wrote: “No I’m not & wasn’t. This was way before TNA. Following my dream to try and make it happen, & the hard times I was given back then at that place was discouraging & disheartening. Joey wasn’t wrong in his tweet. That stuff went on for a lot of Indy guys & girls trying to make it.”
