While speaking to Real Sport, Impact wrestler Davey Richards indicated that he doesn’t have much time left with his career as a wrestler and mentioned that he doesn’t see himself wrestling for another five years.
“I’ve said it a couple of times, and I’ve realized that I don’t have that much longer left. I don’t know how long, because sometimes I wake up and just love wrestling and want to be part of it forever. Sometimes I wake up and I just hate it, because it’s such an intimate passion for me, it’s like a marriage. I know that I’m getting further along in my school and in my career outside of wrestling, to where I won’t be able to wrestle as much anymore, and soon I won’t be able to wrestle at all because of time constraints, and on top of that being a father. I feel good, I feel healthy, and as long as I can keep producing the quality of matches that I hold myself to, which is a very high standard, and as long as I’m having fun and the fans want to see me, I’ll keep it up, but I don’t see myself wrestling for another five years by any means. Plus, I don’t want to be that guy who, when people come to see me, people talk and sit in the crowd and go, “well, you know he used to be really good”, I want to go out on top, I think the fans deserve that. So we’ll see what happens, maybe not the end of this year, but I might have a couple left. We’ll see what happens.”
