Former NWA World Jr. Heavyweight Champion forced to retire.

Former two-time NWA World Jr. Heavyweight Champion Jimmy Rave is forced to retire due to an infection that caused his his left arm to be amputated.

“I have been very bless the past 21 years in professional wrestling and getting to live out my dream. Today, that dream has ended for me and I have a new reality. This past Tuesday, my world came crashing down when Doctors found an infection in my left arm. I tried toughing it out but by the time I saw a doctor it was too late and they had to amputate my left arm above the elbow. Thus effectively ending my in ring career.

I appreciate everyone who has supported me or anyone has pegged me with a roll of toilet paper. To my brothers and sisters I have shared the ring with or a locker room; thank you for always pushing me to be better. Thank you, to all of my mentors and my students who allow me to still feel needed. This was the hardest thing I have ever had to type. If you have questions or comments please feel free to DM me. Please take your health much more seriously than I did. I am sorry for anyone I have let down. Support Pro Wrestling!”
