Veda Scott has been active in wrestling for nearly a decade and as her in-ring career seemingly winds down, she is making plans for her second act.
Scott hasn't been too active in-ring during the pandemic, only wrestling a couple of matches. However, she has made appearances on AEW Dark and Dynamite as a special guest commentator.
On the Last Minute Wrestling podcast, Scott discussed her intention to switch to commentary at some point in the future.
"I think I can do both, however I recognize the value of committing yourself to one thing, particularly if you're looking at a higher level like in AEW or WWE or wherever. Sometimes being versatile is great and having a background is great but also spreading yourself too thin makes it impossible to be good at one thing and many times being ok at many things. For me I love wrestling in the ring, that's why I got into wrestling, but over time I've grown to love the broadcasting side of things, some behind the scenes side of things more than I thought I would and over time I think it evolved [...] I feel myself moving towards that direction more so than in the ring. Part of it is just logistically like you can't physically wrestle forever but I enjoyed doing commentating and broadcasting at times even more than wrestling. I just sort of...I think that I'm good at it but also I enjoy being a part of the storytelling part of pro-wrestling and when you do the commentary that's all you do, it's trying to tell the story," she said.
It is unknown when Scott will retire from wrestling. According to cagematch, she last wrestled in August at LVAC Reel Rumble Weekend night two.
