On Monday morning, Kylie Rae announced that she is stepping away from wrestling.
Rae wrote on her Patreon, "I wanted to take this time to say I am no longer a professional wrestler and am currently taking a break from social media. It's been a very hard decision to make but please understand" and apologized for the lack of communication.
Taking to social media, many wrestlers sent their well wishes to Kylie as she steps away.
I enjoyed Kylie Rae’s work and I hate to hear that she’s leaving something that she was very talented at. But her health and happiness come first and I hope that she’s able to find both. All my best to her!!— Hurricane Helms (@ShaneHelmsCom) November 2, 2020

Kylie Rae is an incredible athlete with an infectious, positive personality. Wrestling can be very taxing on the body and mind. I hope she takes all the time she needs— Brian Pillman (@FlyinBrianJr) November 2, 2020
