Injuries are commonplace in the world of professional wrestling as they can end careers at any given moment. Unfortunately, that is exactly what happened as an NJPW star announced his retirement after suffering a career-ending injury.

Bullet Club War Dogs member Alex Coughlin announced his retirement from professional wrestling on Twitter. In his tweet, he expressed disappointment about having to retire and hinted at plans to sell gear and merchandise in the future.

”Yeah I’m retired and it sucks now leave me the f*** alone”

”Actually I have some merch and gear to sell still so don’t f*** off just yet”


Coughlin’s wrestling career spanned 197 matches, according to Cagematch records. His final match occurred on February 24 at NYWC Psycho Circus 21, where he teamed up with Sean Wachter to defeat QGTM (Jey Mesias & Pat Fitzpatrick).

Furthermore, Coughlin notably participated in the Cage Match alongside other Bullet Club War Dogs members on February 11, 2024. In this intense showdown, Coughlin, along with Clark Connors, David Finlay, Drilla Moloney, and Gabe Kidd, emerged victorious against The United Empire’s Francesco Akira, HENARE, Jeff Cobb, TJP, and Will Ospreay.

Coughlin likely suffered the career-ending injury in the cage match and fans are simply disappointed that his career ended before it could have truly begun. Only time will tell what the future holds for Coughlin now that he has retired from professional wrestling.
