Eddie knows for sure his old-running mate is coming back.
Aside from their individual successes, the team consisting of Eddie Edwards and Davey Richards--"The American Wolves" found a great deal of success as a tandem. The duo are former two-time ROH World Tag Team Champions and have held the TNA World Tag Team Championships on five separate occasions.
After their many years together--splitting and reuniting in the midst of those years, Davey Richards decided that he was going to step away from the squared circle to pursue another profession. Richards announced his departure from IMPACT last summer so that he could go to medical school to become a doctor.
Edwards is still in contact with his long-time tag team partner and Edwards shared during an interview with Fightful's Sean Ross Sapp that he certainly believes that Davey will make a return to the ring and that Davey just needed to step away, heal his body and put his energy into something else for a change.
“I do, I do, you know, we text each other here and there--try to keep up with what’s he doing. He’s doing well, he’s in school right now and, he’s killing it in school and trying to be a doctor and all that stuff so, my hat’s off to him as always." Edwards said. "He’s always given the cliche 110% in everything he’s done whether its wrestling or his job and he’s doing that right now.” Edwards continued, “Well I’d say its for the time being [Richards being away from the ring]. I don’t think he’s done. I think he just wanted to take some time off, heal his body. I know he got some injuries taken care of, kinda heal his body, go through school and handle that and put all of his focus on that because everybody kinda gets burned out and especially when we’re trying to do too many things--you know a lot of things outside so I just think he wanted to put all of his focus on that. But I think he’ll be back and I wouldn’t be surprised to see The Wolves back somewhere. Somewhere, someplace down the line.”
