According to several live reports from tonight’s ROH WAR Live Event in Asheville, NC, Charlie Haas announced his retirement. Apparently before his match with local worker, Jeff Nealy, Haas said that this would be his last match. Charlie Haas lost the match. After the match, Haas was visibly crying. His Twitter account confirms everything.
Well, if this is indeed the end, thank you very much to Charlie Haas for the memories. From his days with Shelton Benjamin and Kurt Angle, to his parodies, all the way to his recent heel run with ROH. I’ve said multiple times that Haas is doing some of the best work of his career right now, so it’s a great way to go out on top. Charlie will apparently not be having his highly anticipated match with Shelton Benjamin next week at Supercard of Honor.
Congrats to Charlie Haas for becoming a full-time father and husband! I hope retirement treats him well.
