Velvet Sky Discusses Why She Came To ROH After Retiring

ROH star Velvet Sky spoke to Wrestling Epicenter's Interactive Wrestling Radio for an interview recently. You can see the full discussion at this link, and submitted highlights below.

When she decided to return to wrestling TV after retiring: 
"I retired from in-ring action back in 2016. My contract with Impact Wrestling was coming to an end. At that time, in the company, I honestly was not having fun anymore. It had nothing to do with the locker room. It had nothing to do with the talent. The talent and the locker room were incredible and still are. It had a lot to do with management and the ins that maybe only the people that were working there would understand where I am coming from. So, anyways, I decided not to re-sign a contract with Impact Wrestling back in 2016 because it wasn't fun anymore and it was becoming a headache just to go there. That is when I decided I didn't want to put my body through hell anymore with bumping week in and week out. I decided it was a great time to hang up the boots and say, "I've been wrestling 16, 17 years now. I've pretty much accomplished everything and more that I set out to do in this business." Any bumps that I would have taken going forward would have been wasted because there really wasn't anything that I was interested in doing. So, I did retire in 2016 but I've said more than once that I was retired from in-ring competition only. I love this business. I always have. My favorite part of it has always been the fan interactions. So, I was blessed to be able to still go out and do autograph signings, meet the fans, and thank them for their support. I mean, Velvet Sky, still to this day, despite not being on TV or being signed to a major company, before Ring of Honor, despite that, the fans kept me relevant. I feel I owe this run to them. That is why I am still here."
