Independent wrestler and YouTube personality Kris Wolf has to step away from the ring.
Wolf announced on Monday that she will be retiring from wrestling due to concussion related-symptoms.
“I’ve had some shitty symptoms of my concussion stuff come up,” she stated. “I've taken only a few bookings. I think now would be a good time to peace out before I completely lose my mind. Just had a couple of blackouts and memory issues. It's kinda balls.
She later said, "My heart wants to take care of my head. If I can't question or learn things, I get sad. Concussions suck. And the thing that is scary is that 40 years later your personality may have been well affected by the concussions, and you don’t realize it.”
Wolf stated that she is talking to a promotion in London about doing a farewell show. She is scheduled to compete on Feb. 20 at Bar Wrestling in Los Angeles.
Wolf has wrestled all over the world, including WXW, PROGRESS, EVE, SHIMMER, Stardom, ROH and more. She recently competed at McAloon Productions - Come Hell or High Water.
Wolf made the announcement in a YouTube livestream, which you can view here.
