Mike Knox Gives Up On Pro Wrestling Following WWE Release
Friends of Mike Knox say the former WWE star wants nothing to do with the professional wrestling industry following his release from WWE last year. He has refused to accept requests for appearances at wrestling events and even wrestling conventions and autograph signings.
Those around Knox, now 33 years old, say he became depressed over being let go by WWE and gave up on his pro wrestling dreams.
Knox began his pro wrestling career in 2000, and signed with WWE in 2005. During his stint with WWE, he performed at Wrestlemania XXVI, got it in with Melina (allegedly), and grew one of the elite beards in professional wrestling.
