Velvet Sky Reveals Why She Retired From Wrestling, Talks The Beautiful People, Her Thoughts On IMPACT Wrestling
Former IMPACT Wrestling Knockout, Velvet Sky recently spoke with The Hannibal TV on a range of topics, including why she retired from wrestling. Below are some highlights with a H/T to WrestlingInc.com for the transcriptions.
Why she retired:
“Well, I wrestled for fifteen years, and as a wrestler, we all have a shelf-life”, said Sky. “After fifteen years of bumping and getting thrown around the ring, I decided… well I want to be able to stand up straight and be healthy when I’m sixty. So I just knew that it was my time. I had so much fun in my career, travelled the world, (met) my awesome fans, wrestled in so many memorable matches, and now I’m just a fan outside the ring.”
On the Beautiful People:
“All the girls that were in The Beautiful People, Angelina Love, Lacey Von Erich, Madison Rayne, they’re all awesome. They were all so much fun to work with. We’re like sisters, we had so much fun on the road together. I couldn’t have asked for a better group of girls really.”
Thoughts On IMPACT’s product:
“I don’t think… there’s no more original knockouts there. I think Gail Kim was the last one. But that’s okay, because there’s a new crop of girls in there now and they are awesome. They are killing it. They tear it up each week. I don’t get to watch as much as I’d like to, but they have a really solid group of girls in the knockouts division right now, and I’m super proud of them all.”
