Velvet Sky announces retirement

Former TNA/Impact star and two-time Knockouts Champion Velvet Sky revealed in an interview with WNPR.org that she was retiring from professional wrestling.

Sky, real name Jamie Szantyr, talked about how she will be returning to college at Post University in Connecticut to finish up the degree that she put on hold.

“Wrestling has a shelf life. 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. I had a really satisfying 15-year wrestling career, so I went back to school because I got to live out my wrestling dream.”

  1. Does she really consider this news? When was the last time she had a match, the bay of pigs?

  2. I think so, they had a charity appearance together a few months ago together, he probably wants her to stay at home and not running around doing shows…

  3. For all the criticism she gets, she always worked hard, did her best, and I at least thought she was a better than average wrestler. I’ve also met her twice at autograph signings and she was really friendly & personable with everyone.
    Happy trails, Velvet. Happiness always.

  4. May 20, 2016 at a One Night Only taping where she defeated Marti Belle so it’s only been a little over a year..a significantly shorter time than the Bay of Pigs invasion of 1961.
