Former WWE/WCW/ECW/TNA World Tag Team Champion D-Von Dudley has retired from the ring.
D-Von has been working behind-the-scenes with WWE in recent years so it's been clear for a while that his in-ring days have ended but he made it official this week on the Table Talk podcast with Mo Lightning.
As he announced his retirement, he also admitted frustration with not wrestling one more year like he wanted to.
D-Von said, "You know, I’m just — and I’ve told Lindsey this before. Even though I am little frustrated, I was a little frustrated of not continuing to wrestle for that one more year that I wanted, I’m extremely happy now being a producer and not wrestling. I have officially announced that I’ve hung it up and I’m done, you know, except for different appearances that they may want me to do on the show, but no more wrestling. No more fighting for the titles. None of that anymore. I’m done. I’m officially done."
D-Von said he's happy with how his 28-year career went and noted how old-time wrestlers would tell him that the years go by quickly and he feels the same about his career as part of The Dudley Boyz.
The last time fans saw D-Von in a WWE ring was during the Raw 25th anniversary show in 2018. His last official match was in 2016 for House of Glory wrestling in New York City.
