Former Impact Tag Team Champ Leaves GFW, Will Leave Pro Wrestling

It appears as though five-time Impact Wrestling Tag Team Champion Davey Richards has announced that he has parted ways with Global Force Wrestling (GFW). Richards took to Twitter to release a statement explaining his decision, and revealed that he will be walking away from professional wrestling to finish up medical school and pursue his dream of becoming a doctor:

“Truth is- I love wrestling,” Richards stated. “But my goal is to be a Doctor. I have managed my time in doing both my school, my job as a Paramedic, being a dad, and a wrestler as best I could for as long as I could. But the demands as I head into the last couple years of Medical School have brought me to a point where I have to choose one or another. So with GFW’s blessing I have chosen medical school.”

Richards has spoken about leaving professional wrestling before, as the idea crossed his mind back in 2010, however, he later had a change of heart. He is currently married to GFW star Angelina Love.
