AQA Stepping Away From Pro-Wrestling
AQA joined AEW in February 2022
AEW’s AQA has announced she is stepping away from pro-wrestling ‘for the immediate future’.
Releasing a statement to Instagram earlier today, AQA said the following:
“I want to take this time to say thank you to anyone who has ever cheered for me, supported me, bought merch, had me on your podcast or wrote an article about me. Those who sent loving messages, made fan art, gave me a hug during a meet & greet, or a high-five on my way to and from the ring. Promoters who booked me, opponents that stood across from me, and my trainers for teaching me everything I know for I wouldn't have made it this far without all of you.
“At this time, I have decided to step away from professional wrestling for the immediate future. For the past few years, both mentally and physically, I have not been in a great place with wrestling, and silly me, I kept pushing through because I didn't want to be seen as weak, but it only sucked the fun out of every opportunity I had. I hope during this time I'll be able to reflect deeply and see what path is best for me.
“Thank you AEW for granting me this time. Until I see you all again, much love.”
Formerly known as Zayda Remier in NXT, AQA joined AEW in February after impressing during her in-ring debut for the company, later wrestling on the ROH Supercard of Honor pre-show amongst other matches.
