Kylie Rae had a lot of potential in AEW, but she requested her release. The same was true in Impact Wrestling, but she also had issues. Now, it seems that her career in the ring is far from finished.

Kylie Rae has already set her sights on a comeback to the squared circle. Earlier in April, Kylie shared the joyful news of her pregnancy, expecting a child with her partner Isaias Velazquez.

During a recent interview on The Wrestling Perspective Podcast with Dennis Farrell, Kylie was asked about her thoughts on her career moving forward after the pregnancy and whether she had a game plan in place for her professional aspirations.

“I know I still want to wrestle. I still go to training at least once a week and get in and do the warm-ups and the drills that I’m able to do; I don’t necessarily do any spots or drills with other people, and that’s because accidents can happen; god forbid something horrible happens. I definitely limit what I’m able to do, and that’ll probably even decrease even more once my belly’s out to here, and I can’t do a forward role anymore. I believe in training consistently because I think that if you don’t use it, you lose it, no matter how long you’ve been doing anything. I’m trying not to lose too much throughout the pregnancy if that makes sense. I’m holding onto that set drift. I would love just to keep having fun and growing and learning and trying to; I don’t want to say correct mistakes but learn from the mistakes that I’ve made.”


“I can’t predict the future. Whatever happens, happens, but I know I still love wrestling, and I probably always will. I want to continue doing this as long as I can. I initially said I would like to be back working matches in January, but again, I’m hearing that that’s not possible. So I’m shooting for April. of 2024. and maybe baby steps into whatever happens from there.”

“I don’t know if it’s ok to say, I feel like I’m a little bit of a, I don’t want to say liability, but I know I need to be better at, let’s say, reaching out if I need help or if I’m overwhelmed. So, one of the biggest things I want to continue is keeping certain things in place; if I ever am going through one of my down periods.” 

“I will say this; I am over 20 months sober now and consistently going to thank you so much. That’s something that I’ve always kind of struggled with throughout my life, continuing my sobriety. I go to therapy every other week. I am continuing that as well. It helped me. I will be honest if this was a year ago, I don’t know if I would have been able to hop on a call with you all. So that’s how much my anxiety would really affect me. So that’s progress, right? So just progressing every day.” 

Kylie Rae’s passion for wrestling and her commitment to her craft shone through as she discussed her future plans. Despite the upcoming challenges and adjustments, she conveyed her strong sense of purpose and affirmed that her career ambitions were on the right track.

As Kylie Rae navigates this exciting chapter in her life, her fans will wait for her return to the ring. They are also confident that she will bring the same enthusiasm and skill that have made her a beloved figure in the wrestling world.
