Davey Richards on Turning Down Offer from WWE

Last updated

Former Ring of Honor Champion and TNA/IMPACT performer Davey Richards recently appeared on the All Real Wrestling Podcast. The recently un-retired star discussed why he and Eddie Edwards chose not to sign with WWE years ago.

‘We had an offer from both WWE and TNA/Impact,’ Richards began on the podcast. ‘We went down to the WWE training facility in Orlando and they were very kind to us, they were very nice.”

“I mean I didn’t have anything and Eddie’s very Boston and you just have to understand his family’s all from there. He was not digging moving to Florida to and I’m from Washington State; I can barely take St. Louis” Davey Richards added.

‘So Florida’s like’¦ ’˜oh god I’m gonna die’ and just living down there, that would have been a little rough for us to commit to that at that point” Richards recalled.

“I was also finishing up my paramedic school so I really wanted to work as a paramedic in addition to wrestling. And then TNA / Impact, they came along and they offered us a good deal” Davey Richards noted.

“Their schedule was more conducive to both our desires at that time so that’s how the whole thing started’ Richards concluded.
