Fare thee well. While the wrestlers on and on-screen personalities are the people who get the most attention, there are all kinds of other people who come together to make a show work. This includes the backstage workers, some of whom rarely get credit for everything they do. Now one name, who has been around for a very long time, is finally leaving and it will be a pretty big deal.

According to Fightful Select, longtime wrestling seamstress Sandra Gray, who currently works for AEW, is retiring from the road “imminently”. Gray worked for WCW in the 90s before coming to the WWF in 2001 when WCW was purchased. She left WWE in 2015 and eventually went on to work for AEW. Despite leaving the road, she will continue to make Cody Rhodes’ gear.
Gray’s backstage work in WWE has made it to camera before. Check out some of her appearances:
Opinion: Gray is one of those people who has done all kinds of work over the years that millions of people have seen but several of those people have never heard of her. It is fascinating to see someone with that kind of talent get to display her skills, as Gray has all kinds of talent and has been able to use it at a high level for years. It’s going to take someone very talented to replace her and now AEW has to find someone to do so.
What do you think of Gray’s work? Who has the best ring gear? Let us know in the comments below.
