Kylie Rae had a whirlwind 2019 as she signed with All Elite Wrestling in the early stages of the promotion, but left after working only one match. It was confirmed following AEW All Out that Rae had left the promotion. A reason for her departure was never given. She later revealed that no one made her leave AEW.
In a new post on Instagram, Rae opened up about her struggles with mental health.
--Long post alert! This is a tough one: Here’s a non-edited picture of myself, no make-up, non-showered --. But hey, I’m down 7 pounds! Aye let’s get vulnerable for a sec -- Mental illness is no joke y’all. On a real note, it’s been a rough time. Starving, then binging, gaining 15 pounds, excessive workouts, major depression, panic attacks, etc. I’ll spare all the details but one thing I’ve learned throughout this whole thing is: it’s okay to talk about it . Being able to open up with others and listen to stories, hearing, sharing knowledge, and learning how much others go through, as well as myself, along with different remedies on how to cope and overcome is one of my favorite parts about this life and has definitely helped me open up. Thank you to anyone and everyone who has helped along the way, and hopefully this can even help someone else in need. -- Not where I used to be, but better than I was.

Since leaving AEW, Rae has remained active on the Independent scene, wrestling for IMPACT, Freeland, Black Label Pro, and more.
