During an interview with “Covalent TV,” Starkz was questioned about the possibility of an early retirement due to her early start in the wrestling scene. However, her determination shines through as she expresses her commitment to continue battling in the ring for as long as possible, aspiring to be the wrestling equivalent of iconic Hollywood figures.

“I made a lighthearted remark about this because I manage my finances wisely,” Starkz shared. “I thought, ‘At what age could I retire if I keep earning at this pace?’ And then I thought, ‘Hmm, maybe by the time I’m 45.’ But in reality, in my mind, I won’t consider retirement until I’m around 90. Picture me as the Betty White of wrestling, strutting down the ramp and saying, ‘Hey, powerbomb me off this table really quick!'”
