Team Ambition Wrestling School, Prestige Wrestling, and St. Louis Anarchy all announced that they have cut ties with former Impact Wrestling star Davey Richards over domestic violence accusations. Richards issued a statement to regarding the situation…

“Hello everyone – Wow, what a couple of days. There are allegations of Domestic Violence against me. The allegations I adamantly deny and if you look on casenet in MO under my name Wesley David Richards you’ll see there are no charges filed against me. However, I do understand the industry’s stance on this matter. Everyone should feel safe at shows and I do not want to be the person whom damages that. The pic being posted of my wife’s eye is from training and we regulatory train in martial arts as many of the students have have got black eyes and such. Again, no charges were filed and I deny these allegations but I must do what is right and not what I want.

So I am canceling myself. This great sport is far too wonderful for anyone, including myself to tarnish it. I will wrap up my shows this weekend and I will be retiring from professional wrestling. Please continue to support Team Ambition and this sport.
