WSU’s Cindy Rogers will be retiring following one last match on June 25th at WSU’s Uncensored Rumble iPPV.
Her opponent that night will be her good friend Allison Danger, who will be appearing for WSU for one night.
Rogers’ statement below:
I started this journey of pro wrestling 10 years ago, and it has been the greatest ride. Due to a permanent neck injury I sustained in a car accident 2 years ago I have to announce my retirement from this sport I love. It’s a decision that I have put off for a long time now. Physically I needed to do it awhile ago, but mentally I just couldn’t do it. Unfortunately the physical part has taken a priority. I will be retiring on 6/25 at the WSU show in Union City, NJ.
I had the pleasure of working with some of the best female wrestlers out there and some of them in my opinion are the best of all time who don’t get the credit they deserve. I’ve also been able to not just meet, but work with some of the legends I grew up watching. It has been said that it is hard to make friends in this business, but I have been lucky to make many friends including ones who I also consider family-you guys know who you are :)
I’m not going to lie- this announcement I am finding much harder to write than I thought it would be. It is hard to try to sum up my feelings on not just retiring, but also how to thank everyone who helped me on this great journey. I learned from every match I had and from the many workers I have met along the way-guys and girls. I want to thank all the organizations and promoters that I was blessed to work for.
I want to thank Larry Sharpe and the Monster Factory for the outstanding training I received to get me started, and my Monster Factory family who have always supported me and pushed me. I want to also thank Pops and WXW for taking a chance on this rookie many years ago to go out there and spread my wings. Thank you to SHIMMER and WSU for putting together great places for female wrestlers to shine and show that there is a lot of female talent out there and we are not fluff divas. Special thanks to Mercedes, Lexie, Malia, Amy Lee, Missy, Nikki, Little Feather, Allison, April, and Alicia. Most of all I want to thank Mana for taking me under his wing and opening so many doors for me. We traveled up and down the road trying to make a name for ourselves- you are my best friend forever my brother.
I want to thank the fans most of all for all the love, support, and dedication to me throughout my career. It means more to me than you know. From the bottom of my heart-Thank You :)
