Doug Williams Announces Retirement
Doug Williams, the legendary British wrestler who has had a brilliant 25-year career, lost a career ending match to Trent Seven for the Atlas Championship at Progress’ Hello Wembley show on Sunday.
“It was more their decision than mine,” Williams said, during an interview with SportBible last week.
“They approached me with doing a different kind of storyline, which was a disgruntled veteran that was bitter about the new guys taking over. But I switched it on them and said I’m thinking about retiring next year anyway, why don’t we do a storyline that could culminate in that possibly happening?”
It’s late, I’m tired, I’m sore. It’s been a hell of a night. Tomorrow I will post my feelings and thoughts on what might happen now. But for tonight THANK YOU EVERYBODY!!

IMPACT Wrestling’s Eli Drake Talks WWE Past, Possibly Joining WWE Again
IMPACT Wrestling star Eli Drake recently inked a contract extension with the promotion and he recently took part in an interview with Wrestling Inc to discuss his run in Impact Wrestling, his run with WWE, and the possibility of signing with WWE again in the future.
Drake is happy with his decision to stick with Impact.
“It’s amazing. I had options, obviously, to do other things, but I like my lifestyle right now,” Drake said, according to Wrestling Inc.
“I like the idea of not being stuck in a warehouse five days a week. That’s not a shot at anybody, that’s a fact of life, if you will. I just like my lifestyle living in L.A. I didn’t want to move to any other state, I didn’t want to go anywhere else.
“And I like the freedom that I have to do what I do, be what I am and make the money that I’m making. So everything is pretty good in my book and in my world, so it’s A-OK to stay with Impact.”
In regard to a return to WWE, who released him in 2014, Drake is unsure what the future holds.
“I don’t know, and the reason I don’t know is I’ve had a strange crossroads with this business over the last couple of years,” Drake said.
“It’s changed a lot, it doesn’t feel like the same business I fell in love with 20-30 years ago. But that’s not to say that I can’t still do my own thing my own way, that’s exactly what I’ve always done and that’s what I’ll continue to do.
“But wrestling has changed in a lot of ways and not for the better, in my opinion – but again, if I could continue doing my thing then who knows? We’ll see what happens, and if I feel like I want to continue doing that at a much more exaggerated pace, as far as the schedule and what not.”
