Gabbi Tuft, the first transgender star of WWE, shares insights about her transition experience
I can now say with confidence, that I love myself for WHO I am. The previous eight months have been some of the darkest of my entire life. The emotional turmoil of being transgender and having to face the world has almost ended me on multiple occasions. "However, the day I stopped caring about what other people thought, was the day I truly became limitless and allowed my authentic self to come into the light. My loving wife, family, and closest friends have accepted me for who I am. To them, I am forever grateful. Your support along the way means more than you will ever know." Tuft also noted she will provide more details about her announcement in an interview with Billy Bush that will air on Friday's episode of Extra. Tuft is best known for her three-year stint in WWE from 2009 to 2012, making her main-roster debut on ECW.
