Former Impact Wrestling star announces his retirement

Former Impact Wrestling X-Division Champion Doug Williams has retired. He announced his retirement after losing a career match at Sunday’s PROGRESS Hello Wembley event.

The retirement stipulation was Williams’ idea because he had already planned to retire next year.

Williams began wrestling in the 1990’s as Doug the Anarchist. Many wrestlers who use the rolling suplex credit Williams for exposing them to the move.

He has wrestled for several promotions including ROH and Pro Wrestling NOAH but fans in the United States would remember him best from his time with TNA (Impact) Wrestling as the leader of the British Invasion faction.

Later, he had a run as the X-Division and TV Champion. Williams returned to Great Britain after being released by Impact in 2013. He was the PROGRESS World Atlas Champion before his loss on Sunday.
