Via Twitter, independent wrestler Billy Dixon announced his retirement from professional wrestling. Dixon stated, “Firstly, I want to apologize. I’m sorry if I disappointed you with this decision to walk away.” He would then go on to discuss his past, starting wrestling when he was 19, all the while working multiple jobs and doing everything he could to survive while chasing his dream. Dixon would also touch on his injuries and depression, both of which hampered his in-ring career and life in general. “In short, I’ve neglected myself for almost a decade,” Dixon said.

“It is not accurately stated how much the physical, social, and financial stress that comes with this truly impacts your mental health,” said Dixon on Twitter. “Keep that in mind that wrestlers are in fact human beings; we hurt, cry, and deal with hardships like anyone else. Please be kind.”
