Ruby Soho may be retiring soon. It is still unknown when that will happen, but it seems that something like that is close. Speaking at a virtual signing at the Galaxy Con 2022 event in Raleigh, Soho spoke about her decision.
She emphasized that now she needs more time to recover than used to be the case. “These last couple years are the first years that I have, not like thought about retiring anytime soon or anything, but it’s been about 12 years that I’ve been doing this and I feel it a lot more.
It takes a lot more for me to recover from matches than it used to. After each one, I’m hurting a little bit more. It’s just gotten me to start thinking about life after wrestling, which before, I had blinders on, ‘this is what I’m doing.’ I’m not necessarily preparing for it, but I also want to know my interests outside of this”.
Ruby Soho: I’m going to do this for as long as I can
However, Ruby Soho's greatest love is wrestling and she doesn't want to give up just yet. Soho is ready to fight as long as she has the strength to do so. One thing is certain: Her career will not last long, but Soho is aware of that and wants to enjoy every day.
“This will still always be the driving force behind everything that I’m doing right now and I love it more than anything and I’m going to keep doing it as long as my body will allow me, but I’m held together with toothpicks and bubble gum at this point [laughs].
I think I have more years behind me than ahead of me, but I’m going to do this for as long as I can,” she said.
