I can easily see him giving up wrestling for something he really wants to do. As he said, wrestling isn't his life. He doesn't seem like the guy that wants to go to WWE or TNA, so in that standard, what else is there to do that he hasn't done?
If you followed any previous Davey "controversies" the main thing issue comes from there being no money in wrestling. Hence him ditching DGUSA to sign with ROH, bigger pay. You can't say what somebody wants without you knowing them. WWE and TNA are money, that's the bottom line. Money, exposure, all that. Danielson signed with WWE for money.
Setting a retirement date is just really lame I feel. Is there gonna be a 4-month retirement tour? For a guy who might come back any moment after set date for a one time $100 appearance?

I mean, isn't the whole reason they took the strap off of Omega is because he couldn't make it to the shows to defend the title? So in that case, if Davey isn't going to be able to continue to make the PWG shows, yes, I would like to see the belt off of Davey and given to someone who will be at the shows.
You're showing too much concern almost. He's confirmed for the July show, things are obviously looking more up than down after him missing 2 shows for Japan. If anything I would imagine if he's serious about leaving/retiring he'd want to fully commit all bookings until then.
There have been some real bad title situations in the past. For example Tornado being champ while his knee was fucked; we saw no defenses for a very long time. Before him Low Ki had to vacate the title. The Omega/Davey situation is actually pretty tame in comparison.
