Davey Richards is returning to the ring next month.

Global Syndicate Wrestling, a promotion based in New Jersey, announced that Richards will compete at its GSW Catalyst event on May 22.

Richards hasn’t wrestled since a Combat Zone Wrestling show in 2017. The former Ring of Honor World Champion has battled injuries throughout his career. This past November, he commented on these difficulties in a lengthy Twitter post:

“To every snow I missed and every fan I let down – I am truly sorry, it is completely my fault. My ego would not let me admit that inside I was falling apart. I couldn’t admit to myself I couldn’t be the one thing I always identified myself as: wrestler. I’ll make no excuses, I own all of it. It’s funny – in 2 years I will be a doctor. I’ll have more money than I know what to do with, and I couldn’t care less. It wasn’t then, and isn’t now about the money. It was about the wrestling. I don’t know what will happen. But maybe, just maybe I will be fortunate to be able to again participate in the greatest sport on earth: wrestling.”

Among other accomplishments, Richards is also a five-time TNA Tag Team Champion and a two-time IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Champion.
