Allysin Kay recently appeared on Taylor Wilde’s podcast, Wilde On, where she discussed several topics including the time she was diagnosed with blood clots in her lungs:
Kay: “The one time thought I might have to prematurely [retire)]is early 2018, when I was diagnosed with blood clots in my lungs. And that was actually right at the end of an IMPACT taping, and I ended up in the hospital for three days and I had to be on blood thinners for six months. My contract with IMPACT expired during that time, so I didn’t know if I was ever going to be able to wrestle again.”
“It was like, I had to go to a hematologist and get a bunch of different testing to determine whether or not they felt that this was caused genetically or if it was caused by outside medication, things like that. I think it’s pretty obvious since I’m still wrestling that it wasn’t genetic, thank God. But it was up in the air for those six months.”
Kay also shared her thoughts on her free agency, as she stated that she has several options available to her. “I’m just trying to see which one fits, and I’m trying to see what comes to me,” said Kay.
During her time with the NWA, Kay held the NWA World Women’s Championship, and she made her All Elite Wrestling Debut on the Buy-In at AEW For Gear.
