Former GFW Knockouts Champion Velvet Sky recently revealed in an interview with WNPR that she had stepped away from pro wrestling in order to focus on going back to college at Post University.
“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.”
She started her pro wrestling career back in 2003 and later signed with TNA in 2007. She spent nearly a decade with the promotion. During her time with TNA, she won the Women’s Knockout Championship on two occasions.
