KYLIE RAE BREAKS SILENCE ON AEW EXIT
Former AEW talent has finally spoken on her departure from All Elite Wrestling, in a comment on Instagram
Here is what she said:
“I don’t know how to start this and I can’t speak on other’s behalves. I can only speak for myself and what’s in my heart. I don’t know many rumors and honestly try to stay away from everything, obviously 😅. But here: nobody made me leave. AEW took my career to new levels and I’m beyond grateful for every opportunity and experience that has come along the way and wish nothing but the best. It’s a great group of people who truly love wrestling and just want everyone to succeed. I’ve always tried to be a good person but I make many mistakes along the way. I needed to get my mind, body, and soul right with God. I wish I had the answers but the truth I don’t. We all go through obstacles in life and we may want all the answers but we don’t need them. It’s God’s plan and he has shown me what’s truly important in life and to find a blessing in every moment because in the blink of an eye, everything can be gone. So instead of bashing, let’s just love one another and appreciate what we have, or something like that lol sorry I’m awkward.”
Kylie Rae quietly asked for her release from AEW over the summer, which was made public by AEW President Tony Khan during a media scrum after All Out. No real reason was ever given and she disappeared from wrestling until September and even appeared on Impact Wrestling’s Bound For Glory.
