Taryn Terell announces retirement from pro wrestling


Taryn Terell has announced her retirement from pro wrestling.

On Instagram, Terell announced that she was “hanging up her boots for good”.

“In my career, I often have not been able to be the first to 'break my own news,'" she wrote. “At every company, it makes it to the public before I was truly ready to say anything. Anyhow, I have decided that it's time to officially hang up my boots...forever. It’s so bittersweet.”

She thanked the NWA for giving her an opportunity to manage and giving her creative control over her storylines.

“NWA gave me a wonderful opportunity to manage. The problem is, I can’t be beside that ring and find happiness. I love the ring. Being inside those ropes and connecting with the humans in the crowd fuels me. There’s no place like it. Therefore I asked for more. They gave me more and gave me really fun matches. I had complete, creative freedom. I was able to tell stories the way I saw them. I am grateful to Billy for allowing me a place to create and relive the moments inside that ring.”

The NWA commented on her post, writing: “We’ve all loved watching you shine both inside the NWA ring and alongside it. You will be missed!!! Wishing you nothing but the best on the path ahead.”

Terell is best known for her runs in WWE, where she went under the name Tiffany, and Impact Wrestling. During her time in the NWA, she managed the likes of Jennacide, Paola Blaze, and Natalia Markova.
