While WWE has not confirmed the reports, according to sources within NXT, female performer Kacy Catanzaro is leaving the WWE and retiring from in-ring competition thanks to an apparent back injury.
Catanzaro has been tweeting since the news broke, making comments about strength by saying things like “show them who you are.” Speculation is that she’s referring to having to work through what sounds like awful news as it pertains to her wrestling future.
We here at Wrestling Writeups have reached out the Catanzaro for comment and are awaiting a response.
A Huge Loss For NXT And WWE
Catanzaro may be among the most popular female superstars in WWE to not yet get her shot at the big time. Never called up to the main roster, she was often front and Center due to her high-flying and aerobic ability. She also happens to be the girlfriend of Ricochet.
A former American Ninja Warrior star, she was a big signing for WWE who was probably correct in their assumption she could have been a big crossover star. She was often booked in a David vs. Goliath-type format and recently appeared in the women’s Royal Rumble Match.
We wish the best to Catanzaro if the reports are accurate and hope her injury isn’t too serious.
