Popular Knockout announces her retirement Submitted by Aaron Rift on 07/06/2017 at 03:12 PM
In an interview with wnpr.org, former TNA Knockouts champion Velvet Sky announced that she is retiring from wrestling and going back to college. She initially left college so she could pursue a career in wrestling.
“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.”
