• “I am canceling myself” – TNA/ROH Veteran Announces Retirement After Domestic Violence Allegations

Several Pro-Wrestling promotions have cut ties with TNA/ROH Veteran Davey Richards, after allegations of domestic violence came out against him.

Richards (age 40) is denying these allegations and has announced his retirement from professional wrestling.

Below is the statement that he issued:

“Hello everyone –

Wow, what a couple of days.

There are allegations of Domestic Violence against me.

The allegations I adamantly deny and if you look on casenet in MO under my name Wesley David Richards you’ll see there are no charges filed against me.

However, I do understand the industry’s stance on this matter.

Everyone should feel safe at shows and I do not want to be the person whom damages that.

The pic being posted of my wife’s eye is from training and we regulatory train in martial arts as many of the students have got black eyes and such.

Again, no charges were filed and I deny these allegations but I must do what is right and not what I want.

So I am canceling myself.

This great sport is far too wonderful for anyone, including myself to tarnish it.

I will wrap up my shows this weekend and I will be retiring from professional wrestling.

Please continue to support Team Ambition and this sport.


Below are Davey Richards’ major accomplishments from his 19 year career:

– 1x ROH World Champion

– 3x ROH World Tag Team Champion

– 5x TNA World Tag Team Champion

– 2x (NJPW) IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Champion
