Former WWE Diva Kaitlyn says her decision to retire from WWE was a last minute decision

Aaron Oster of the Baltimore Sun has an interview up with Celeste Bonin (aka former WWE Diva Kaitlyn). She noted that her decision to leave WWE was a last minute decision.

When I retired, it was a bit of a last-minute decision. I had been thinking about it for a while because there was a lot of things happening in my life and it was a transitional time for me. I had just gotten engaged, and I wanted to plan my wedding. I also had this project on the backburner, with this business site, that I wanted to wait to start until I retired from WWE. When I made the decision, rather quickly, to leave the WWE, I went full throttle into making my business work, while also planning a wedding. So it’s been pretty hectic.

She also talked about how hard it was for her early on in the company when there wasn’t a clear cut role for her.

For the first year-and-a-half, it was really hard for me. Being in the WWE is hard in general because there’s so much travel and there’s a lot of physical and emotional stress. It’s a tough business. So for the first year-and-a-half, I was questioning if I had made the right decision [to join the company]. I wasn’t on TV a lot, I didn’t really have a character, and I was just in the background. During that time, I was traveling every week with the main roster, but I wasn’t in the spotlight at all. When I first had a chance to make an impression and earn my spot, I did.

She also said that she doesn’t rule out a return to WWE and she left the company on good terms. She noted that she still watches the show but not regularly because of her schedule.
