"I never had so many deep thoughts about my career like now," Melo said on X, formerly known as Twitter. "I love and miss wrestling so much. I arrived in the [USA flag emoji] in October 2016, no English and had NEVER watched wrestling before [laughing emoji] now for the last almost 7 years I dedicate myself to wrestling and did so many cool things that I'm proud and grateful for."

Melo expressed gratitude for having the opportunity to perform at significant pro wrestling events throughout her in-ring career, including WrestleMania 34, the WWE Mae Young Classic, AAA TripleMania, AEW All Out, AEW Revolution, AEW Double or Nothing, and AEW Full Gear.

"I worked for WWE, AEW & AAA," Melo continued. "I know it's just the beginning and now I'm extra motivated to have everything else. Wrestling changed my life, gave me a purpose and I think everyone should enjoy wrestling."

She entered the Women's Battle Royal that took place before WrestleMania 34 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. Additionally, she participated in the WWE Mae Young Classic in 2017 and 2018.
