“I can’t apologize enough to everyone but I have to cancel my remaining bookings for 2017. I am going to need surgery on Right knee.”
Richards continued, “I’ve always been someone who has bore my heart inside of the ring & “kept it real” with the fans.
I’ve been known to as you call it “no Show” events. Truth is ( no excuse) I’ve been battling knee issues since 2006 when I tore my knee the night before my first ROH match. Cortisone shots, Anti inflammatory drugs, Stem Cell therapy, hyperbaric chambers, etc have kept me able to perform this long but not anymore. Sorry longer than 3 tweets lol. I’ve given my life to wrestling since I was 10 and honestly if all I have is a bum knee I am thankful. But..I refuse to let it end like this. I’m going to take the proper time off the get the correct surgery and rehab. I hope to return to make good. On the events I haven’t been able to perform at bc of my knee. I always prided myself on being a wrestlers wrestle and if I couldn’t give You ? I didn’t want to waste your time. Perhaps foolish pride. But that’s me. Anyways- thank you for reading. I love you all and love this Great sport and hope to return to it and give you your money’s worth. Thank you. To clarify @BookItGabe tweet- I am seeing a doc Wednesday to SCHEDULE surgery. There is no doubt ( unfortunately) I need the operation.”

“Been emailing with Davey Richards today. His right knee exploded on him. He’s out for next week. We apologize for the lineup change. Davey Richards is seeing a doctor on Wednesday, but it’s obvious he will not be able to perform next weekend. We are working on lineup changes right now. We greatly value EVOLVE in Detroit & Chicago and will do out best for a sub or better card.”
