Former WWE Superstar Tiffany, aka Taryn Terrell, has announced her retirement from pro wrestling.

Terrell had been working with the NWA for a while now. She previously had stints in TNA, WWE, and several independent promotions. Her biggest accomplishment came in TNA, where she won the Knockouts Championship once.

Terrell announced her retirement in a heartfelt Instagram post and received best wishes from all corners of the wrestling world.

Check out a couple of excerpts:

"In my career, I often have not been able to be the first to 'break my own news.' At every company, it makes it to the public before I was truly ready to say anything. Anyhow, I have decided that it is time to officially hang up my boots… forever. It’s so bittersweet. NWA gave me a wonderful opportunity to manage. The problem is, I can’t be beside that ring and find happiness."

She continued by thanking NWA President Billy Corgan:

"I love the ring. Being inside those ropes and connecting with the humans in the crowd fuels me. There’s no place like it. Therefore, I asked for more. They gave me more and gave me really fun matches where I had complete, creative freedom. I was able to tell stories the way I saw them. I am grateful to Billy for allowing me a place to create and relive the moments inside that ring," Terrell wrote.
