In other news, Davey Richards has announced his retirement from professional wrestling while also addressing allegations of domestic violence against him.

Several companies have cut ties with Richards due to “allegations of domestic abuse” which is in violation of their policies and codes of conduct.

St. Louis Anarchy had already released Richards due to a violation of their code of conduct. Richards had reportedly privately denied any allegations against him to several people he had been in contact with.

In an email to Pwinsider, Richards publicly addressed the matter, acknowledging that there are allegations of domestic violence against him which he “adamantly” denies.

He noted that due to the “industry’s stance” on the matter, he is “canceling himself” and will hang up his boots after this weekend.

You can check out the full statement from Richards below.

“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 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.
