She had not competed since last year when she was injured soon after returning to WWE with her new stable Absolution. Since then, she has been accompanying Absolution to the ring but had not directly addressed her retirement. 

During her tear filled retirement speech, she said she took encouragement from the situations of Daniel Bryan and Edge. She said Bryan gave her hope but Edge showed her that there is more to life outside of WWE. She said she would have to "find something else" to do as a career.
