The first transgender celebrity in the WWE, Gabbi Tuft, claimed that she was denied access to the Smackdown backstage area at Madison Square Garden. She had not competed in a wrestling match since quitting ten years prior. According to a WWE representative speaking to NYTimes, the problem was brought on by a “shortage of tickets.”

Gabbi Tuft, who is she?

Former professional wrestler Gabbi Tuft is best known for her time in WWE, where she competed under the ring name “Tyler Reks.” Tuft received instruction from Mike Bell. In February 2007, she made her professional wrestling debut for Ultimate Pro Wrestling. The Burning Hammer was Tuft’s trademark move during her time as a professional wrestler.

Tuft also competed in Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW), an affiliate of the WWE. There, she won the FCW Florida Heavyweight Championship as well as the FCW Florida Tag Team Championship twice—once with Joe Hennig and once with Johnny Curtis.

Since leaving the world of professional wrestling in 2014, Tuft has worked in marketing. She also co-founded a website for fitness with a few other wrestlers. Gabbi Tuft publicly revealed her gender as a transgender woman in February 2021.

In addition to all of this, Reks and Curt Hawkins collaborated in 2011 to create the animated YouTube series MidCard Mafia. However, the show was quickly postponed and taken down from the internet following complaints from the WWE administration.

In terms of her private life, Tuft has been wed to her wife Priscilla since July 2002. They had just one child, Mia, who was born in November 2011. In the summer of 2019, Tuft also underwent an open heart procedure.

Tuft currently shares her journey as well as lifestyle and fitness tips with her 124,000 Instagram followers. In addition, after retiring, she and her wife Priscilla started a fitness company called Body Spartan. This company’s mission is to “positively transform the body, mind, and spirit of men and women.” It accomplishes this through targeted video exercises, dietary plans, and inspirational seminars.
