A.Q.A, who is currently signed with AEW, has announced that she will be stepping away from pro wrestling for the immediate future. She signed with AEW in February and became All Elite after an impressive showcase against Jade Cargill for the TBS Championship. She had a total of seven matches with the company.
She writes on social media –
“I want to take this time to say thank you to anyone who has ever cheered for me, supported me, bought merch, had me on your podcast, or wrote an article about me. Those who sent loving messages, made fan art, gave me a hug during a meet & greet, or a high-five on my way to and from the ring. Promoters who booked me, opponents that stood across from me, and my trainers for teaching me everything I know for I wouldn’t have made it this far without all of you.
At this time, I have decided to step away from professional wrestling for the immediate future. For the past few years, both mentally and physically, I have not been in a great place with wrestling, and silly me, I kept pushing through because I didn’t want to be seen as weak, but it only sucked the fun out of every opportunity I had. I hope during this time I’ll be able to reflect deeply and see what path is best for me.
Thank you AEW for granting me this time.
Until I see you all again, much love.”
She captioned the post – “With love, thank you.”
A.Q.A had a brief run in NXT where she went by the ring name Zayda Ramier where she faced the likes of Sarray, Toni Storm, and Mercedes Martinez. She worked the indie scene prior to signing with WWE where she was trained under the tutelage of Booker T at Reality of Wrestling where she was a two-time champion. Her signature move is a shooting star press that can be seen in her match with Cargill in the video below.
Diva Dirt sends our best wishes to A.Q.A. We hope the best for whatever she does in the future.
