Earlier today, via Instagram, Sadie Gibbs announced that she would be retiring from professional wrestling. Most recently, she was signed to All Elite Wrestling, where she wrestled from mid-2019 to August of 2020. In her Instagram post, Gibbs stated that the last year and a half was a “really confusing” period in her life. Nonetheless, she remained optimistic in the post, citing future endeavors she would be pursuing. These include short films and a future self-development book, so it’s evident that her time will be filled.
“I have to let go,” said Gibbs on Instagram. “And set my intentions on what it is I want from my life and where I see long term sustainable fulfillment.”
Sadie Gibbs made her AEW in-ring debut at All Out in 2019, where she competed in the Women’s Casino Battle Royale. She was one of the women to eliminate Awesome Kong before ultimately being eliminated from the match by Bea Priestley. Gibbs would go on to make a few appearances on AEW Dark, wrestling her last match in the company that October. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, she was unable to travel overseas from the United Kingdom. Ultimately, she was released from her contract.
In addition to her work in AEW, she was worked in multiple other promotions since starting her career in 2017. She has worked for British Empire Wrestling, Pro-Wrestling: EVE, and World Wonder Ring Stardom; in the latter, she regularly worked with such names as Bobbi Tyler, Mary Apache, and Hana Kimura.
