Taryn Terrell Retires From Pro Wrestling

Taryn Terrell calls it a career

A former WWE talent and TNA Knockouts World Champion has announced her retirement from professional wrestling. 

Taking to Instagram, Taryn Terrell announced she is calling it a career:

"In my career, I often have not been able to be the first to 'break my own news'. At every company, it makes it to the public before I was truly ready to say anything. Anyhow, I have decided that it is time to officially hang up my boots...forever. It's so bittersweet. NWA gave me a wonderful opportunity to manage. The problem is, I can't be beside that ring and find happiness. I love the ring. Being inside those ropes and connecting with the humans in the crowd fuels me. There's no place like it.

"Therefore, I asked for more. They gave me more and gave me really fun matches where I had complete, creative freedom. I was able to tell stories the way I saw them. I am grateful to Billy for allowing me a place to create and relive the moments inside that ring. I knew I was ready to be done but I also knew I wanted to feel the rush of having a match again! Billy gave me that. But the truth is, it's time to say goodbye. I love entertaining and fully intend to continue that in the way of stunts.

"Thank you to Billy for the fun, last year and half! I wish you and NWA the very best! Thank you to Pat Kenny, the one and only Simon Diamond, who constantly reminded me to believe in myself! To all the girls I've grown close to and the rubber duck clan, I freaking love y'all and I will be cheering you on as y'all continue to kick ass!"

Taryn Terrell signed with WWE in 2008 and was the ECW General Manager as Tiffany. She was let go in 2010 and signed with TNA Wrestling a couple of years later. She went on to win the TNA Knockouts World Title in the promotion, holding it for 279 days in 2014 and 2015. 

She then left wrestling in 2015 before a brief return to TNA in 2017. Terrell then resurfaced again in 2021 in the National Wrestling Alliance, where she was primarily booked as a manager.
