Former TNA Impact Wrestling star Davey Richards has announced that he will be undergoing knee surgery and will be out for the rest of 2017.
Richards had announced back in July that he was leaving Impact Wrestling to pursue a medical degree and become a doctor. He said he would be finishing out his already-booked dates, but retiring at the end of 2017.
If he does intend to make good on all the bookings that he will be missing due to the surgery, then his career will continue into 2018, and add to the Reddit thread of his list of false retirements.
In all seriousness, Fightful wishes him a successful surgery, as well as a speedy and full recovery.
