Davey Richards says he turned down offers from AEW and WWE

Davey Richards

Former Impact Wrestling star was recently interviewed on Vickie Guerrero's "Excuse Me" podcast to talk about his wrestling career, family life and his career as a paramedic and firefighter.

Richards says he turned down offers from WWE and AEW:

“I’ve been offered a WWE contract three times now, and AEW reached out too," Richards said. "I’m a father, so being on the road that much is difficult for me. Plus for me, I found out in my time in Impact, which was great, they treated me very well, that I hate TV wrestling. What I mean by that is I hate wrestling for five minutes. I don’t like wrestling for anything less than 15 minutes. It’s just not me. It’s not my style. There’s nothing wrong with people who do it and do it very well. Obviously, that’s where the money is. In all the respect in the world, that’s just not me. I like to get in there and tell the stories and things like that.”
