• Former WWE Diva Announces Retirement From Pro-Wrestling
Taryn Terrell (fka Tiffany in WWE) has announced her retirement from professional wrestling.
WWE signed her to a contract after she participated in the 2007 Diva Search contest. She had a run as the ECW General Manager and also wrestled on SmackDown. She was released from the company in 2010.
She then worked for TNA from 2012 to 2016, where she won the Knockouts Championship.
Taryn returned to wrestling in 2021 and wrestled 10 matches in the NWA.
Tarrell issued the following statement about her retirement:
“In my career, I often have not been able to be the first to ‘break my own news’. At every company, it makes it to the public before I was truly ready to say anything. Anyhow, I have decided that it is time to officially hang up my boots…forever.
It’s so bittersweet. NWA gave me a wonderful opportunity to manage. The problem is, I can’t be beside that ring and find happiness. I love the ring. Being inside those ropes and connecting with the humans in the crowd fuels me. There’s no place like it. Therefore, I asked for more.
They gave me more and gave me really fun matches share I had complete, creative freedom. I was able to tell stories the way I saw them. I am grateful to Billy (Corgan) for allowing me a place to create and relive the moments inside that ring.
I knew I was ready to be done but I also knew I wanted to feel the rush of having a match again! Billy gave me that. But the truth is, it’s fine to say goodbye. I love entertaining and fully intend to continue that in the way of stunts.
Thank you to Billy for the fun, last year and half. I wish you and NWA the very best. Thank you to Pat Kenny, the one and only Simon Diamond, who constantly reminded me to believe in myself.
To all the girls I’ve grown close to and the rubber duck clan, I freaking love y’all and I will be cheering you on as y’all continue to kick a$$!”
For those who don’t know, Taryn Terrell is also the ex-wife of Drew McIntyre. They got married in 2010 and got divorced in 2011.
