Brittney Savage to Leave Wrestling in December

Brittney Savage has announced her intent to leave wrestling at the end of the year.

The two-time J-Cup winner sent out a series of tweets that read:

Brittney began her career in November 2008 as Brooke Carter, but it wasn’t until she debuted for WSU that she really started turning heads. Not long after her arrival in WSU, she formed a tag team with AJ Lee (then going by Miss April) called The AC Express. In February 2009, The AC Express defeated The Beatdown Betties to become the new WSU Tag Team Champions.

Unfortunately for their team (but fortunately for the WWE!), AJ was soon signed to a developmental deal and departed the independent scene, leaving Carter partner-less. WSU allowed her to make a replacement and she chose Alicia. The pair lost the tag titles to Hailey Hatred and Jessicka Havok in August 2009, and in rematch with them in October, Carter turned heel and aligned herself with Rick Cataldo. She also re-named herself Brittney Savage.

Since then, Savage has won the WSU Spirit Championship three times and the J-Cup Tournament twice, in both 2011 and 2012. She made a face turn in 2011, helping defend WSU against the Midwest Militia.

She also made a one-off appearance on Smackdown in November 2009, as part of Beth Phoenix‘s “squash tour”.

More recently, Savage has become a local staple for SHINE Wrestling in Florida. She will also be part of Wrestlicious’s second season.

    awww that is too bad, I was hoping to see her in WWE, she had the look and a good wrestler and had the try out a few months back with WWE, and guess things didn’t work out with that!!!!

    but all the best and keep on keepin on

    I really feel bad for her, because she done lots of tryouts with WWE, and they neve gave her a chance.
