The former IMPACT Wrestling Knockout has actually already announced her retirement from the ring and she says that in spite of this new role and a promotion that she’s never been in, she is sticking to her word and will mostly be acting as a manager with Mandy Leon and Angelina Love mostly taking on the role of the in-ring competitors:

“I still stand as being retired in the ring. Back when I announced that in 2016 I made it clear that I retired from in-ring action only. I love the wrestling industry, I always have, but that time came in 2016 where my contract with IMPACT was coming to an end and I just wasn’t having fun anymore. No one understands unless you’ve been through the doors there. I’m not making it sound like it was a bad experience there, because it wasn’t. I embraced my time there. I had a ball my entire career there, but there comes a time in everyone’s life for whatever reason you’re just not having fun anymore.
It had a lot to do with management. I’m not going to get into that because I’m not going to go on a tangent about that, but it had a lot to do with how the wrestling industry shifted. I wasn’t happy with management, my contract was up, so I was like ‘you know what? Now’s the best time. I’m healthy, I never suffered any real injuries in the ring’ and I just felt like it was time to walk away. I didn’t want to just go out there and work the independent scene and just bump night after night for no reason. As a professional wrestler, you just have to know your limits and you only have so many bumps on your bump card. Any wrestler will tell you that.
So mid-2016 I announced my in-ring retirement, but I made it clear that I would still be around for the fans to do meet-and-greets, autograph signings, just be involved in the wrestling industry in a non-wrestling role. That’s still my stance, and I’m in a non-wrestling role in The Allure. I’m more the managerial mouthpiece, directing traffic, and Mandy and Angelina are going to be the ass-kickers of the group. We’re The Allure as a group, but we also have our own individual identities as Angelina being the bad ass, me being the brains and Mandy being the bombshell.”
