A former WWE star has announced his retirement from the ring and he now plans to focus full-time on commentary.
Matthew Rehwoldt, known to most fans as former WWE star Aiden English, announced tonight that he will no longer be taking wrestling bookings and this year has taught him that he is most comfortable with the mic and that he no longer likes believes that wrestling is for him.
Rehwoldt, 34, added that he is a free agent and is open to conversations with companies that need someone on the microphone. Rehwoldt has done a lot of commentary for Impact Wrestling and New Japan Pro Wrestling and his work has been very good but presumably he would be open to management work.
I wouldn’t be surprised if AEW and/or WWE reach out to him for comment or as a wrestler or stable manager.
Here are the tweets sent by Rehwoldt:
“So here you go:
I will not be taking any more bookings in the future to wrestle.
I’ve always been most at home with a mic in front of me and am in love with the broadcast side of the biz. I’m not sure if I still feel at home in the ring and this year has taught me that.”

“But I love what I’m doing now and I’m still technically a free agent, so if you have a business/promotion that needs an entertaining and experienced voice on the mic, get in touch!
All this in addition to continuing to explore esports/gaming, VO and content!
I DO ALL THINGS!”
