Former TNA X-Division and WWE Cruiserweight champion Kid Kash announced the following via Twitter: 

“It’s official, 2015 will be my last year as an active pro wrestler. I have had the most amazing journey over the last 20 years but it’s time to go out on my own terms. I’m hoping to do one final European tour and one final visit to my favorite places around the USA this year so get in touch. From ECW, WCW, TNA all the way to WWE and all the titles in between its been a f***ing blast. Now time to kick some a** one last time.”
