Dirty Dango To Get Knee Surgery, Clarifies His Comments About Stepping Away From Wrestling

Dirty Dango (Fandango) clears up misconceptions.

Many thought his tweet was a retirement announcement, but speaking to the Dropkick Podcast at WrestleCon, Dango clarified his comments and explained why he will be stepping away from the ring.

"First of all, I just wanted to get rid of Twitter. In general, it's a very negative platform. It's kind of my own fault for reading the comments. It's good if you want to build your brand. I do construction back home, I'm kind of putting a lot more energy into that lately. I'm getting surgery this summer on my knee. I never really said I was retiring, I said I was going to step away for a little while. Of course, the dirt sheets picked it up. I kind of got a kick out of it. I'm gonna get surgery on my knee, it's been bothering me for about a year now and re-evaluate this summer, take the summer off, spend it with my girl and my dogs, and see where we're at. Wrestling is not going anywhere," he said.

Dango has been active on the Independent scene since his WWE release in June 2021.

He's made appearances on NWA television and for companies such as Beyond Wrestling, Limitless, and NEW.
