The life of a wrestler is not an easy one. It can be physically and mentally demanding, and sometimes wrestlers need to change their lifestyle in order to achieve their goals. One of the top stars in the Knockouts Division recently announced that she’s retiring later this year, and now another former TNA Knockouts Champion is putting wrestling in her rear view.

WNPR recently interviewed Velvet Sky, and Velvet says that she’s stepping away from wrestling so she can go back to college in Connecticut.

“’Wrestling has a shelf life,” Velvet Sky said. “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.”

According to Velvet Sky, she wants to become a personal trainer now that she’s had the opportunity to live her dream inside the ring.

“I’m in really, really good physical condition, still, and my health is great,” Szantyr said. “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.”
