Velvet Sky retires from wrestling, heads back to school

Despite teasing a move to WWE or NXT last year, Velvet Sky has officially announced her retirement from the ring.

In a recent interview with WNPR, she reveals the move.

“Wrestling has a shelf life,” she said. “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.”

She’s back in school at Post University to finish up a college degree she put on hold before becoming a wrestler. She wants to be a personal trainer, and she’s working with the next generation at a wrestling school in Danbury.

“I’m in really, really good physical condition, still, and my health is great,” she said. “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.”

Velvet is best known for her career in TNA where she is a former two time TNA Women’s Knockout Champion and a former TNA Knockouts Tag Team Champion as part of The Beautiful People.
