One of the more mysterious stories of the past year in wrestling was the sudden AEW departure of Kylie Rae, who had looked set to be one of the promotion’s biggest female stars.
No-one seemed to know why Kylie, who now works for IMPACT, had suddenly requested her release, but rumours started this past week that she had perhaps been bullied out of the company by Brandi Rhodes.
Rhodes has denied these claims, and Rae has now backed up Brandi in an Instagram post, explaining why she left the company.

I don’t know how to start this and I can’t speak on other’s behalves. I can only speak for myself and what’s in my heart. I don’t know many rumors and honestly try to stay away from everything, obviously 😅. But here: nobody made me leave. AEW took my career to new levels and I’m beyond grateful for every opportunity and experience that has come along the way and wish nothing but the best. It’s a great group of people who truly love wrestling and just want everyone to succeed. I’ve always tried to be a good person but I make many mistakes along the way. I needed to get my mind, body, and soul right with God. I wish I had the answers but the truth is I don’t. We all go through obstacles in life and we may want all the answers but we don’t need them. It’s God’s plan and he has shown me what’s truly important in life and to find a blessing in every moment because in the blink of an eye, everything can be gone. So instead of bashing, let’s just love one another and appreciate what we have, or something like that lol sorry I’m awkward. 😂❤️🙏🏼
It’s good to see that she’s still very positive, and perhaps one day she’ll find her way back to AEW when she’s ready.
