After requesting and being granted her release from All Elite Wrestling earlier this summer, Kylie Rae returned to wrestling last night. She performed on a Freelance Wrestling show in Chicago as a last-minute replacement for Shotzi Blackheart. It was her first match since June.
Just hours before the event, Freelance Wrestling posted on their Twitter account that Kylie would be Blackheart’s replacement on the card:
Video of Kylie’s ring entrance was posted online by fans in attendance:
Kylie Rae Returns To Wrestling
AEW President Tony Khan confirmed after All Out that Kylie had requested and been granted her release. It is not known at this time what led to her requesting her release from the promotion. She deleted her Twitter account and has not posted to Instagram since July. Her only match as an official member of the AEW roster was at Double or N
“She is no longer with us,” Khan said at the All Out post-event media scrum. “She asked for her release and we granted it, she called me and asked if she could be released from her contract, it was pretty simple. I said ‘Yeah’ and asked if everything was okay. She said, ‘Yeah,’ and didn’t want to be with the company anymore.”
