Default Former Knockouts Champion Announces Retirement

Quote:
Former TNA Knockouts champion Taylor Wilde has announced her retirement from pro wrestling Her final match will take place against Alissa Flash on 2/5 for Pro Wrestling Revolution in San Francisco, CA.

In an interview with the UK Sun, Wilde revealed that she has not met her own personal goals in the wrestling business and feels it is time to move on.

“I had a couple of months left on my contract, but I made a decision pretty much when I first started working for a major wrestling company (WWE) that wrestling is a wonderful job, it’s a lot of fun and you get to travel the world. In my early twenties it was very lucrative, but I told myself that when I was 25, if it was an industry I could see myself doing for the rest of my life I’d keep going, but otherwise it was time to hang up my boots.”

Wilde explained that she does not want to be stuck in the wrestling business forever without finishing her education and having other options to fall back on. She also talked about how there is a lot of pressure on female performers to look a certain way and their “shelf lives” are not as long as their male co-workers.

“As a female wrestler you are marketed to be cute, sexy, have a banging body and be full of life. You’re not so cute when you are 30, 35, 40. And that’s not a shot at older women. But as far as television goes, and what your body can take, our biological clocks are ticking. For most of us women we are marketed on our appearance, and that has a much shorter shelf life than any man in this industry.”

“I have to think about the rest of my life, the state of my body and my bank account.”

Wilde is currently studying psychology and said she’d consider wrestling again if “the right financial offer” came along, but not until after she finishes school.

Best of luck Taylor! Will miss her.

That's a shame, but probably for the best, tbh.

Huge fan of her. I think alot of her leaving tna is because of Bishoff. He ran off half the knockout roster in the first month. Hopefully when Bishoff gets the boot and we get new management she can come back and give a great run at wrestling again while she's still young.

She definitely made the right choice. She was pretty solid in the ring and I'll miss her, although obviously she wasn't getting any kind of push at all in TNA.

Was a huge Taylor Wilde fan back in 08.

She is spot on in this interview and I wish her the best.

If Bischoff made a mistake then why didn't WWE hire her?
