"If you always put limits on yourself and the things you can do, physical or anything, you might as well be dead. It will spread into your work, your morality, your entire being. There are no limits, only plateaus. But then you must not stay there. You must go beyond them. If it kills you, it kills you."

After four years on the independent scene, I decided it was time to retire. Saying the word "retire" when I'm only 22 years old sounds kind of silly, but I can't think of what else to call it. I wasn't having fun anymore. I didn't like the state of professional wrestling and decided it wasn't something I wanted to be a part of. Once I decided I didn't want to be in the WWF anymore, I didn't have any motivation to continue to get better.

My last match, and it was a memorable one for me, was in October and it was against The Blitzkrieg Kid Bobby Bambino, a long time friend and opponent of mine. It was our 22nd match together and we had a great one, especially for me not stepping in a ring for six months. The finish of the match was the most memorable part for me. It was something I haven't seen done before.

It's funny because the last time I wrestled I weighed 180lbs, and not I'm 215lbs. I gained about 30lbs of muscle which really would have helped my wrestling career, but even that wasn't enough to keep me going.

I want to thank everyone I ever met while in this business. All the fans who saw me wrestle, all the people who ever emailed me, or wrote me, or ordered merchandise. I want to thank all the friends I made in the locker rooms, all the promoters that gave me a chance. I want to thank the love of my life, Kimber,for always supporting me and putting up with so much crap, and trying to convince me not to quit. I could go on forever about the memories I have but it's just too much to type. I'm sad to be gone, but also relieved. It's been a long, fun ride. Thank you all for everything.
