Velvet Sky was forced to stop her wrestling career for physical reasons. During a recent interview with Hannibal TV, the former IMPACT Wrestling superstar recalled the reasons which led to that difficult decision.
“Well, I wrestled for fifteen years, and as a wrestler, we all have a shelf-life”, revealed Sky. “After fifteen years of bumping and getting thrown around the ring, I decided… well I want to be able to stand up straight and be healthy when I’m sixty.
"So I just knew that it was my time. I had so much fun in my career, travelled the world, (met) my awesome fans, wrestled in so many memorable matches, and now I’m just a fan outside the ring.”
On Impact Wrestling: “There’s no more original knockouts there. I think Gail Kim was the last one. But that’s okay, because there’s a new crop of girls in there now and they are awesome. They are killing it. They tear it up each week. I don’t get to watch as much as I’d like to, but they have a really solid group of girls in the knockouts division right now, and I’m super proud of them all.”
