John Moorehouse passed along an interview with ROH wrestler Davey Richards for MMA-Insider.com. The interview notes that Richards plans to retire from pro wrestling in August 2013.
“There’s a reason I turned down (WWE) developmental and I turned down TNA. I never had aspirations to be like a superstar or to make a ton of money at this. I have a set of goals. I accomplished my goals. I feel like I’m the best wrestler I’m going to be. I can honestly say I have more interest, at this point and time, in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. So I really want to put my time and energy into that. I have another career lined up that I’m putting my time and energy into. For me, I’m not giving any less than 100 percent. It’s time to move on.”
