See you later. While there are a lot of other wrestling promotions in the world, WWE is ultimately the biggest, most powerful and most influential in the world. If a wrestler makes a name for themselves there, they are going to be able to survive on that for years to come. The independent circuit is filled with wrestlers who were formerly part of WWE, but now one of them is going to be hanging up her boots.
The Women’s Revolution has brought WWE a long way and there is no denying how big the changes have been for the company. It took a long time to get here, but the women’s division has reached heights no one would have ever believed possible just a few years ago. As different as this generation has been, there was a group of wrestlers who came before it to help pave the way, but one of them is walking away from wrestling.
In a new interview with Chris Van Vliet, former WWE and NWA Women’s Champion Jazz announced that she has officially retired from in-ring competition. Jazz had been planning this to be her final year no matter what but then the Coronavirus pandemic cut off her plans for a farewell tour. Her knees and back have been giving her problems and she has decided to retire not only for her health, but also to spend more time with her daughters. Jazz began her career in 1998 with ECW and wrestled for WWE from 2001-2004.
Jazz was quite the star in her era. Check out her time in WWE:
Opinion: I’m not sure I would call Jazz the top star of WWE’s women’s division but she was definitely an important player. She was able to go in and have a nice match with just about anyone and even had a title match at WrestleMania 18. That isn’t the kind of thing that everyone gets to do and it is great that she got to have such a long career. Hopefully she got out as close as she wanted to as possible, because she was rather talented in the ring.
