Davey Richards Says He Turned Down Offers From WWE & AEW

Davey Richards returned to professional wrestling in June following a four-year hiatus. Richards has been making the rounds in various independent promotions across the United States.

The former IMPACT Wrestling star made an appearance on Vickie Guerrero’s ‘Excuse Me’ podcast, where he spoke about his wrestling career. Richards revealed that he had turned down offers from both WWE and AEW.

Richards explained:

“I’ve been offered a WWE contract three times now, and AEW reached out too. I’m a father, so being on the road that much is difficult for me. Plus for me, I found out in my time in Impact, which was great, they treated me very well, that I hate TV wrestling. What I mean by that is I hate wrestling for five minutes. I don’t like wrestling for anything less than 15 minutes. It’s just not me. It’s not my style. There’s nothing wrong with people who do it and do it very well. Obviously, that’s where the money is. In all the respect in the world, that’s just not me. I like to get in there and tell the stories and things like that.”

Richards was recently announced as the tenth confimed participant in the 2022 PWG Battle of Los Angeles tournament, which will be his fourth time entering the tournament.
