Fandango Announces Wrestling Retirement & Deactivates Twitter WWE

Former WWE star Dirty Dango (Fandango) has seemingly announced his retirement from wrestling.

On Friday, Dango, real name Curtis Hussey, took to Twitter to reveal that he plans to step away from the ring for good soon, noting:

“I’ll be stepping away from the ring in couple months. Goodbye forever.”

Hussey has since deactivated his Twitter account.

Originally training under Killer Kowalski, Hussey made his pro-wrestling debut in September 1999. Hussey signed a developmental contract with WWE in 2006, before working at developmental territories Deep South Wrestling and Florida Championship Wrestling.

Hussey also competed on NXT during the competition era, from 2010 to 2012, and debuted his ‘Fandango’ ballroom dancer gimmick shortly after, notably pinning Chris Jericho at WrestleMania 29.

The former NXT Tag Team Champion was released from his WWE contract in June 2021. Working under the name ‘Dirty Dango’, Hussey has been wrestling for NWA, most recently competing as part of this month’s Crockett Cup tournament.
