Former TNA Knockout, Taylor Wilde has called it quits.
Taylor (whose real name is Shantelle Larissa Malawski) was born on January 26, 1986 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
She was trained by Rob "El Fuego" Etcheverria (Squared Circle Training) and Bill DeMott (Deep South Wrestling)
Taylor made her pro wrestling debut in June 2003 at the age of seventeen under the name Shantelle Taylor and was featured on the Discovery Channel's documentary Slam Bam in 2004.
Also on that show was Tiana Ringer, and you may recall when Taylor (Shantelle) hit Tiana with a cross body press, Tiana botched it and got a concussion.
After that, Taylor went on to work for wrestling promotions like Shimmer Women Athletes, Blood Sweat and Ears, Pure Wrestling Association and Twin Wrestling Entertainment among others.
She even spent some time in Mexico as a luchadora and went on a three show tour of South Africa.
In 2006, Taylor was signed by the WWE and sent to Deep South Wrestling (DSW) and then Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW).
For awhile, she wrestled masked as San-Eye.
She was released by the WWE on August 13, 2007, and decided to devote her time not to wrestling, but to a college degree.
But that didn't last long as she soon had a tryout match for TNA Wrestling and on May 8th, 2008, was signed to a contract.
In TNA she held both the TNA Women's Knockout Championship (once) and the TNA Knockout Tag Team Championship (twice, once with Sarita and once with Hamada).
Doing that made Taylor the first wrestler to hold both the belts.
On December 29th, 2010, Taylor confirmed that she had left TNA and on January 10th, 2011, she announced that she was leaving wrestling.
She had her retirement match on February 5, 2011, at a ChickFight and Pro Wrestling Revolution promotion in San Francisco, California and she lost her retirement match to another former TNA Knockout, Alissa Flash (Cheerleader Melissa).
Besides saying that she will be working on her psychology studies, she will also be marrying her boyfriend Oliver Mitchell.
