16. Former TNA Champion Clarifies Her Statement Regarding Retirement
During a recent interview with WNPR, former TNA Knockouts Champion Velvet Sky announced that she’s retiring from Professional Wrestling and is going back to college. Below is what she said:
“Wrestling has a shelf life. College doesn’t. You can be 50 years old and go to college for your degree. You can’t be 50 years old and train to be a pro wrestler. I’m in really, really good physical condition, still, and my health is great. And I want to keep it that way. I had a really satisfying 15-year wrestling career, so I went back to school because I got to live out my wrestling dream.”
Velvet then took to Twitter to clarify that she’s only retiring from in-ring competition and not Professional Wrestling as a whole.
Below is what she tweeted:
