Madison Rayne recently spoke with Ryan Boman of Sportskeeda about her decision to retire from pro wrestling.
She made the announcement official this past Saturday during the Impact Wrestling Hard to Kill pay-per-view event.
“This business… I have given it so many years of my life, but it has given infinitely more back to me,” Rayne said. “In the sense that, for the first seven years of my daughter’s life, I haven’t been sitting behind a desk, and committed to a structured schedule. And, I spent so much time with her that a lot of parents don’t get in those early years.”
“But, I think it’s time now to pivot, and to… you know, I just graduated from college in December. So, it’s time to put those student loan dollars and that degree to use.”
