NXT ON USA: Ridge Holland announces that he is “stepping away from the ring indefinitely"

Posted on 3/27/124 by Colin Vassallo

In an angle shot last night on NXT, Ridge Holland announced
that he is stepping away from NXT “indefinitely.”

Holland, who broke Big E’s neck on Smackdown two years ago
for real and then had a worked injury angle with Ilja
Dragunov on NXT, thanked William Regal, Shawn Michaels, and
other producers and talent for the journey but cannot risk
injuring himself or someone else anymore.

The former member of the Brawling Brutes added that he knows
what the perception is about him and no matter if they are
true or not, it had an effect on him. Holland noted that all
he wants to be is a good father and a good husband and he
doesn’t want to take work home anymore, and with that, he
announced that he is leaving the in-ring competition.

To add to the angle, WWE has already moved his bio to the
alumni section on WWE.COM.
