It’s time to hang it up. A wrestling retirement is a strange thing. No matter who you are, at some point you have to finish your career and wrestle your last match. Sometimes you don’t know when it’s coming and other times you get to plan it out in advance, but it’s going to happen someday. For a former WWE wrestler, it was the latter of the two choices and that came earlier this week.
Adam Rose wrestled his retirement match on Friday night at a the Star Spangled Slammer Atomic Wrestling event in Cocoa, Florida. Rose was defeated by Bull Dempsey in the match when Dempsey made him tap out. Counting his time in developmental, Rose wrestled in WWE from 2010-2016 with his most well known run being his time as the life of the party character, which debuted on the main roster in 2014.

Get the party started. Check out one of Rose’s rather awesome parties:
Opinion: I wasn’t the biggest Rose fan (though a lot of his failures were on WWE instead of him) but it’s cool to see someone get to leave on their own terms. Rose was in developmental forever and it was good to see him finally get a chance to show what he could do on the main roster. Hopefully he’s happy in retirement and gets to do what he wants, wherever he wants to do it.
What did you think of Rose? How much better count the party character have been? Let us know in the comments below.
