He left in November 2011 to "pursue movies, modeling, and gigs at other wrestling companies".
Owner Jimmy Blaze said: "There was always a good feeling with him being around. He was very open about his past and his problems. His dream was to work around Hulk Hogan and Sting, two of his idols growing up. He loved wrestling, and any time he was around it, you could see a bigger smile than his normal smile."
