Update on Vickie’s WWE Departure
Vickie Guerrero officially finished up with WWE on RAW Monday night. She originally planned to leave the company following WrestleMania 30 but agreed to stick around while WWE came up with a departure angle for her. She leaves WWE after being there for over nine years. During RAW, #ThankYouVickie was trending worldwide.
We’re told Vickie recently moved to Houston, TX and has enrolled in several college courses. She plans to finish school and live a “normal life” taking care of her family. We wish her all the best.
#ThankYouVickie was trending worldwide on Twitter Monday night during RAW – and rightfully so. For almost a decade, Vickie Guerrero was a memorable on-air character that the WWE Universe loved to hate. Her ability to rile up arenas across the world with two simple words, “Excuse Me,” was impressive to say the least. It was a great run.
Vickie Guerrero’s appearance on RAW this past week was her last with the company. Vickie informed WWE that she would be leaving before WrestleMania 30 but decided to stay around and finish out her run. She is said to be leaving on good terms and didn’t have any issues with WWE, but simply wanted to move on to something else. Vickie is very well liked backstage among the talent and Divas. Many of the Divas considered her a “mother figure.” The door is open to future special appearances.
In addition, Vickie is said to have had some creative input to how her departure would happen. The Eddie Guerrero tribute moments (his theme, doing the shimmy, etc.) were her idea. Of course, WWE countered her ideas with their own ribbing/jokes. It was basically a 50/50 “fair” split as to how her exit was booked.
