Ruby Soho was part of a previous batch of releases from WWE last year. Many fans believed the release was the best thing for her career. She is also thinking about life after wrestling lately.
Ruby Soho made her debut at AEW All Out, much to the delight of fans all around the world. However, she has not been able to do all that much, despite competing for the AEW Women’s World Championship.
While speaking during a Q&A session at Galaxycon, Ruby Soho revealed that her body doesn’t recover as fast as it used to. Soho added that she believes she has more years behind her than ahead in pro wrestling.
“These last couple years are the first years that I have, not like thought about retiring anytime soon or anything, but it’s been about 12 years that I’ve been doing this and I feel it a lot more.
It takes a lot more for me to recover from matches than it used to. After each one, I’m hurting a little bit more. It’s just gotten me to start thinking about life after wrestling, which before, I had blinders on, ‘this is what I’m doing.’ I’m not necessarily preparing for it, but I also want to know my interests outside of this. This will still always be the driving force behind everything that I’m doing right now and I love it more than anything and I’m going to keep doing it as long as my body will allow me, but I’m held together with tooth picks and bubble gum at this point [laughs]. I think I have more years behind me than ahead of me, but I’m going to do this for as long as I can.”
Ruby Soho & Ortiz challenged Sammy Guevara & Tay Melo to a mixed tag team match on AEW Rampage this past week. We’ll have to see how Soho will be booked in the coming weeks.
