Everyone does it eventually. At some point, every wrestler eventually has to retire. It might be for one reason or another, but it has to happen at some point. Sometimes you see someone get taken out of the ring before they should, but the best situation is a wrestler being ready to retire when they are ready. That is the case with a former WWE star, though it might be earlier than you would expect.
Via a post on Instagram, former WWE star ACH, 33, has announced that he is stepping away from wrestling. The post does not go into any details on why he is stepping away or if he plans to return to the ring at some point in the future. His most recent match took place at AAW Take No Prisoners 2021 on May 7 near Chicago, Illinois, where he defeated Danny Vega.
ACH has wrestled around the world, including in Japan and Mexico, as well as in Ring of Honor and Impact Wrestling. His highest profile run came in WWE, where he signed in 2019, only to be gone before the end of the year. Eventually being named Jordan Myles, ACH took issue with a shirt WWE produced for him, saying that he felt it appeared to be blackface. ACH would eventually leave the company following a series of videos taking issue with the shirt.

ACH wrestled in a lot of places. Check out some of his time in wrestling:
Opinion: This is a bit of a surprise but if ACH did not want to continue in wrestling, there is nothing wrong with walking away on his own terms. I’m not sure why he wanted to leave but there very well may be something going on behind the scenes that makes this the right decision. It is a shame that his career in WWE ended the way it did, as he could have had a rather nice run.
