Many WWE athletes in recent years have been released because they were no longer part of the company's plans, neither at NXT nor in the main roster, with several important names that have therefore been cut from the McMahon payroll, even overnight.
Due to the global pandemic, then, the WWE has had to go to cut even more important than usual in the last period, with great names such as Bray Wyatt, Braun Strowman, Rusev, Kurt Angle, Nia Jax and many other athletes on the main rosters, who were fired, even though they had big plans at stake in the company's rings.
In the last few hours, however, we have seen how Triple H is trying to bring back to the ship some great names of the past, such as Dakota Kai, Scarlett and Karrion Kross and probably soon also Sasha Banks and Naomi, stopped after their farewell to the company, during one of the Raw tapings they had to be engaged in.
One of the many released from WWE in recent years, however, seems to have decided to give us a break with the struggled pro-wrestling, with the former NXT athlete and the main roster who in the last hours officially announced his retirement.
We are talking about the former partner of Rusev on-screen: Aiden English. Aiden English is currently married to former professional wrestler Shaul Guerrero, the daughter of former SmackDown General Manager Vickie Guerrero and, the late Eddie Guerrero.
Aiden English quits wrestling
At just 34, Matthew Rehwoldt, better known to WWE fans as Aiden English, as well as the husband of Eddie Guerrero's daughter Shaul, also a former WWE wrestler, has decided to drop all pro-wrestling ring engagements.
With a statement that smacks of goodbye to struggling but not a complete farewell to the discipline, Aiden confirmed that he will no longer take booking to fight, but that he will evaluate possible participation just to talk or to be a manager, saying in his various tweets: "So here we are: I will no longer take bookings to fight from now on.
I will spend most of my time at home with a microphone in front of me making plans and still doing this business. I'm not sure if I feel more comfortable in the ring and this past year has taught me that well. But I still love doing this job and technically I'm a free agent, so if you companies/promotions need someone to entertain you or an experienced voice on the microphone, consider me! However, I will continue to explore the world of gaming and create content. I DO EVERYTHING!"
