Kylie Rae has announced her retirement from professional wrestling for a second time, citing health issues, on her Patreon earlier today.
Rae was scheduled to take on Deonna Purrazzo at Bound for Glory last month, but she no-showed without giving any notice to the company, forcing IMPACT to send out Su Yung for the match instead. Yung ended up winning the title which was originally supposed to be won by Rae.
It was reported that Rae was in the area for the event, but eventually didn’t show up for the PPV, much to the surprise of the backstage officials.
The 28-year-old apologized for her behavior and said she is unwell. This is her second retirement from the sport, as she left AEW last year and announced her retirement.
“I’m truly sorry for the pain I’ve caused and miscommunication, I am currently unwell.”
“I’m also sorry that I wasn’t able to get this out before your monthly subscription charge.”
“I wanted to take this time to say I am no longer a professional wrestler and am currently taking a break from social media. It’s been a very hard decision to make but please understand.”
“When I am well, I will try to fulfill any obligations that have missed. During this time, most tiers will not be able to be fulfilled, please feel free to unsubscribe from this membership/PatreonAccount. Thank you for your understanding.”
It seems like Rae is going through mental health issues, and hence has taken the decision to step away from the wrestling business.
It is unclear if and when she will be back, and if promotions will be willing to take her back once again.
