Kylie Rae's AEW departure has been the subject of heavy speculation over the last several months.

After All Elite Wrestling founder Tony Khan confirmed to Fightful that Kylie asked for her release, details of her departure have been quiet. She's since returned to independent wrestling, and finally addressed (via Instagram) rumors that someone caused her to leave the company.

I don’t know how to start this and I can’t speak on others behalves. I can only speak for myself and what’s in my heart. I don’t know many rumors and honestly try to stay away from everything, obviously --. But here: nobody made me leave. AEW took my career to new levels and I’m beyond grateful for every opportunity and experience that has come along the way and wish nothing but the best. It’s a great group of people who truly love wrestling and just want everyone to succeed. I’ve always tried to be a good person but I make many mistakes along the way. I needed to get my mind, body, and soul right with God. I wish I had the answers but the truth I don’t. We all go through obstacles in life and we may want all the answers but we don’t need them. It’s God’s plan and he has shown me what’s truly important in life and to find a blessing in every moment because in the blink of an eye, everything can be gone. So instead of bashing, let’s just love one another and appreciate what we have, or something like that lol sorry I’m awkward. ------

Various rumors circulated, with some attached to the wrestling business portraying them as fact, as opposed to speculation.

Last week, Brandi Rhodes became the first AEW employee to speak on the matter since Khan, and made an effort to shoot down rumors that Kylie left because she was bullied. You can see a Fightful update on the matter below.
