Killer Kelly: Competing At Bloodsport Was One Of My Initial Goals After Getting Released From WWE

Killer Kelly talks leaving WWE.

In January 2020, Killer Kelly was released from WWE after only competing in a handful of matches. Before the pandemic hit in March of that year, Kelly returned to the independent scene, wrestling multiple matches for wXw and Riptide.

In November of that year, Kelly competed as Josh Barnett's Bloodsport event, losing to Allysin Kay.

While speaking to Fightful for a new interview, Kelly said that competing in Bloodsport was one of her initial goals after being released from WWE.

"I was like, ‘Great!’ It was literally like door open and was like, ‘Alright, what are my goals? Oh, I wanna be in Bloodsport.’ That was it. I got that and then I got announced and people were like, ‘Aren’t you contracted by WWE?’ and I didn’t respond. Just, ‘See me at Bloodsport.’"

Kelly went on to say that she got the urge to compete at Bloodsport after being a part of Ringkampf with Gunther and Timothy Thatcher.

"I wanted to do that. Especially because with Walter and Thatcher, I was part of Ringkampf briefly until it died. But I saw them do that kind of stuff and I was like, ‘Oh, my God. I really, really want to do Bloodsport.’ I did it and I had the most fun that I’ve ever had in a ring."
