There was some serious NXT potential there. Every now and then, you get a wrestler who can do things that others just cannot make work. Some of them look rather different than others and they catch your eye immediately. You want to see more of them doing something in the ring and that’s a very rare treat. One such treat seems to be done before she ever really got started.

According to Squared Circles Sirens, Kacy Catanzaro is leaving WWE due to a back injury. Not too many details are known about the injury but Catanzaro has not wrestled a match since July 19 when she wrestled a match at an NXT house show in Tampa, Florida. Catanzaro has wrestled for WWE since January 2018 and appeared in the 2019 Women’s Royal Rumble. She is also the real life girlfriend of Monday Night Raw star Ricochet.

Catanzaro was in the Mae Young Classic as well. Check out her match against Rhea Ripley:

Opinion: That’s quite the shame from a fan’s perspective but if Catanzaro can be happier doing something else, good for her. There’s nothing wrong with not wanting to spend years of your life doing something that you don’t want to do so if she would rather step away, there is nothing wrong with that. She was an athletic freak and I liked watching her, but she can do whatever she wants from here on out and that is more important.

What did you think of Catanzaro? How far could she have gone in wrestling? Let us know in the comments below.
