Former WWE star announces retirement: “Goodbye forever”

Former WWE star Fandango (aka Johnny Curtis, real name Curtis Jonathan Hussey) has announced his retirement at the age of 40.

He announced on Twitter that he plans on stepping away from the ring in a couple of months and said that this would be “goodbye forever.”

His full tweet reads, “I’ll be stepping away from the ring in couple months. Goodbye forever.”

Curtis got his start in the wrestling business on the independent scene in 1999 and signed with Deep South Wrestling, WWE’s developmental territory, in 2006. He later wrestled in the original incarnation of NXT before being brought up to the main roster as Fandango in 2013 where he was initially pushed as an upper mid-card guy and he was booked to beat Chris Jericho at WrestleMania 29.

His push fizzled and he was later paired with Tyler Breeze as part of the Breezango tag team. The team won the NXT Tag Team Championship in August 2020. In 2021, he was released by the company.
