Davey Richards leaving wrestling for good?

Postby BOLA4ever » Thu Jun 17, 2010 11:50 am

i just read Ring of Honor wrestler, Davey Richards, 27, says he's leaving the company in December when his contract expires. He plans to leave pro wrestling for good to pursue a career as a fire fighter.

i can honestly say what a loss in the wrestling world

Yeah this is an absolute blow to pro wrestling in general. I'm really bummed... BUT... I am also happy that he is pursuing a career that we can all be very proud of. GOOD LUCK DAVEY!

I read about this aswell. Davey is a great talent. Amazing technical wrestling. He could have great matches w/ Kurt Angle, Samoa Joe, RVD, AJ, CM Punk.... Too many names to list. Theres nothing wrong w/ him being a fireman, but he should realize an opportunity when he sees it. He said that he sees himself as just an ordinary man, he wont retire, he will just dissappear. He needs to give himself more credit. He is the future of wrestling & he should stick around to be a part of it.

Though that is a very nice though, but also keep this into consideration. If he gets hurt and has to earn money other ways this is a great way to do it. I think he is thinking about his actual future. I think people tend to forget that even as humans not all of them live like rock stars and sometimes have to think about what happens if the time came after wrestling.

I've learned to enjoy Davey's matches. He is a fine talent. And whatever he decides we should respect his decision. Besides we never know what will happen in time. This we have seen time and time again.

I agree. Although it is our loss to no longer have him, it is his life to do with as he chooses. I respect him as a human being as well so if this is what is going to happen, then best of luck to him. The man could be a success at anything he wanted to be.

On the roster he has the most history with Strong, that'd be a fine final match. SD will never wrestle again.

Davey's my favorite "current" wrestler, I always look forward to a new match of his in both ROH & PWG. Generico, Steen, Homicide, Danielson are up there as well but Davey Richards became my favorite guy after Super Dragon left.
