Triple H Text Messages To Transgender WWE Star Revealed

Former WWE Superstar Tyler Reks made headlines after recently transitioning into a woman. She is now known as Gabi Tuft.



Gabi Tuft recently spoke to Wrestling Inc, where a variety of topics were discussed. She detailed her WWE career and eventually quitting the company in 2012 after playing a stripper gimmick with Brian Myers. She left as she wanted to spend more time with her family.

“It happened pretty quickly [departure from WWE],” she said. “My daughter at the time was 8 months old, and I was gone a lot. I would leave from San Francisco on a Thursday night, get to wherever we’re going Friday morning, and I wouldn’t be home until Wednesday at 3 in the afternoon. I had less than 24 hours a week to spend with my  8-month-old daughter.”

She continued, “It was really heartbreaking. I didn’t want to be a FaceTime father. At SummerSlam, which was supposed to be this family event, where all wrestlers bring their family members and hangout. It was so difficult [to quit] then, my daughter wanted to see me but I had all these appearances and autograph signings, and Axxess matches to do.

“My daughter was really upset. I saw the difficulty. My parents just happened to drive through LA, they called at just the right moment and I said, ‘hey, can you take my daughter home with you?’ and they agreed. When I watched them drive away from the hotel, my heart broke, and I knew everything was wrong and I had to quit.”

Tuft then revealed that Triple H reached out to her after she left WWE. He called her on phone and here is what she said regarding the call:

“Hunter was really amazing,” said Tuft. “He understood why I quit and called me later. He said, ‘Hey, look. One father to the next, I totally understand.’”
