Since Kylie Rae left All Elite Wrestling, rumors have run rampant on why she left.
Kylie Rae became AEW's first release this summer, and has since returned to the independent wrestling circuit where she competed in the past. She hasn't spoken on what led to her departing the company as of yet, but that hasn't stopped fans and wrestlers from theorizing.
One fan sent AEW Chief Branding Officer Brandi Rhodes a tweet saying "Did you bully Kylie out of AEW because that’s What literally everyone seems to say in private?" Rhodes would reply with the first public, on the record comments from an AEW employee outside of Tony Khan.
No. If that were true “literally everyone” would be saying it in public.— Brandi Rhodes (@TheBrandiRhodes) November 19, 2019
We feel it is important to disclose that we don't know specifically why Kylie Rae left All Elite Wrestling. As specified on our Fightful Select service, Fightful has spoken to no less than two dozen wrestlers on the matter, with various stories on the matter going around via multiple sources. It's reckless to speculate on the story, but with Rhodes going on the record publicly about a rumor, deemed it appropriate to publish.
Back in August, Tony Khan told Fightful that Kylie Rae asked for her release, and was granted it. He called the split "amicable," and noted that she was a very nice person.
