Gabert spoke about her time in NXT UK and how she felt with the flexibility of tapings.
“As we had only TV tapings about every 4 to 6 weeks I was able to do a lot projects outside of wrestling and I found the world of entertainment in Germany,” Gabert went on to say. “I was on dating shows, game shows, talk shows and got to do lots of fun things in TV. In the summer I was really lucky and got an offer to tour with a German rockstar, Udo Lindenberg, and we went on tour for 3 months, 28 shows, every time in front of 15,000+ fans. In between all of this I had the NXT UK tapings.
“I was blessed to make my debut at Blackpool and witness how the NXT UK superstars performed on a high level with so much passion,” Gabert stated. I was also really happy that I got TV time almost every week; of course some could say it was not a good storyline I was placed in, but I honestly was just happy to be out there at all and I tried to make the best of it.”
Gabert then revealed the reasons for her deciding to leave WWE and NXT UK, stating that other projects came up and took priority.
“On tour I realized that I want more for my life and I got the confidence that I’m able to do more, and for 2020, Udo Lindenberg asked me if I can come on tour again and a reality TV show offer came also in,” Gabert continued. “Unfortunately, these projects would cross the schedule from NXT UK and I had to make a decision, because working all of these projects at once wouldn’t work. As I couldn’t see myself moving on or up in terms of storylines, I had to ask for my release. So it was completely my decision and I’m happy about it. I always wanted to work for WWE and I’m happy that I can tick that box. Of course, would I have loved to be a champion, for sure, but my heart tells me it’s time to move on.”
While this doesn’t mean that Gabert is officially retiring from professional wrestling, she has admitted that she will only be working very limited dates in the future.
“I’m still getting a few independent bookings, but they will be limited as I simply want a change,” said Gabert. “I want colorful hair, lose some of my body weight and just be me, Jazzy, not Alpha Female. But that again can change anytime if the offer is just right.”
