Shaul Guerrero is taking some time away from wrestling to work on her mental health.
Posting on her Twitter page, Guerrero shared that after a scary mental health crisis, she has been advised to avoid high stress events. As a result, she is withdrawing from all wrestling-related appearances for the time being. Shaul apologizes to anyone that this may affect, and thanks all of those who have and continue to support her. She will be seeking help to reestablish her eating disorder treatment and reach a healthy state of mind. Here are her full remarks:
"Official today I am withdrawing from all performances and appearances scheduled in conjunction with wrestling. After a very scary mental illness crisis I am no longer advised by loved ones and professionals to participate in high stress events at this time. I deeply apologize to the fans who have been respectful and supportive of me and who continue to do so. I will be using this time to seek the help I need, reestablish my eating disorder treatment and hopefully get answers and solutions to reach a healthy mental state. I apologize for the inconvenience and disappointment this may bring.
Shaul is the daughter of Eddie and Vickie Guerrero. She joined WWE in 2010, performing under the name of Raquel Diaz. Outside of WWE, Shaul has performed under her real name, most notably as a ring announcer for AEW during their Women's Tag Team Cup Tournament. Shaul recently told Alicia Atout that she was inspired to get back in the ring and was in talks with multiple promotions.
