Former Impact Wrestling Knockout Velvet Sky announced during a recent interview with WNPR.org that she is retiring from pro wrestling and plans to go back to college.
“Wrestling has a shelf life,” said Sky. “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.”
Sky continued, “I’m in really, really good physical condition, still, and my health is great. 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.”
