Layla was with WWE from 2006 to 2015, and she was a part of many stories during her tenure with the company. She retired after having a surgery, but her reason for going under the knife was not made public.
Now Layla has a life outside of pro wrestling, but she recently sat down with Ring The Belle for an interview to give some updates on her life. During that time, she also explained why she left WWE in 2015 after such a good run with the company.
I think I had a great career. I was very privileged. I explored everything I could explore in WWE, like what else more could I have possibly done? I got to be around great people, and I got to travel the world. I was able to get a great fan base behind me. And it was just time. I didn’t want to age too much on TV. The older we get we’re more prone to injuries. It was just time.
Layla is now enjoying a life outside of the pro wrestling business, but she has no issues talking about her time with the company. It was simply time for her to retire after she racked up a lot of injuries while paving the way for a future generation of women in WWE.
