Taya Valkyrie has spoken of how someone recently attempted to break in to her hotel room, and warned everyone to be cautious of how these things can happen.
Posting on social media on 7th March, former NXT star Taya Valkyrie recalled hearing voices whilst she was in the bathroom, and when she came out there was someone attempted to get in through the window.
Valkyrie confirmed the police were called, however were unable to find the intruder. She also said that whilst she was shaken by the incident, it could have ended an awful lot worse.
Just wanted to share what happened to me Saturday evening as a reminder to everyone to be cautious.
Saturday around 5 pm I had just arrived to my hotel in Brownsville. I had just landed and was rushing to get ready for the meet and greet. I put my bags down, grabbed my makeup and went into the bathroom to get started. I heard some voices but thought they were coming from the hallway and didn’t react. A few seconds later I heard someone say ‘look at the purse and sunglasses.’ Those were my things they were talking about. I come out of the bathroom and a man was halfway through the window coming into my room.
I screamed and ran towards them and they ran away. Grabbed my purse and ran to the lobby to get help. Once returning to the room the hotel employee and I realized that the window lock was broken and didn’t lock at all. The hotel called the police but nobody was found. In twelve years of traveling I have never ever had an incident like this happen. I was super shaken up after.
The hotel changed me to the third floor and I went to work. This incident could have been so much worse. That’s what I keep thinking about. What if I had been in the shower, sleeping, changing…Let this just be a reminder to everyone. Check your hotel room before you do anything. I will definitely never blindly enter a room ever again. There are sh*tty people out there, protect yourself by being cautious. Thank you to the hotel and the promoter for your help and quick reaction.
Be safe everyone ❤️ pic.twitter.com/4xanpeoGGM
