For the fans of John Bradshaw Layfield, better known as JBL, there’ some sad news. JBL posted on his blog over at the WWE Universe site saying he is moving on from his wrestling career to focus on the next chapter of his life.

“I had wanted to make it to WM 25 for years, and when injuries cut my career short the one regret I had was that I wouldn’t make the 25th anniversary of Wrestlemania,” JBL wrote. “Well, I made it. I never dreamed after I retired the first time that my back would get better and I would be allowed to return to wrestling…

What’s in Bradshaw’s future? He says, “I don’t know what the future holds, never say never in life. But I have wrestled my last match. Months ago, I picked out this match. If Eddie Guerrero couldn’t be here for it then my dear friend Rey [Mysterio] was the obvious choice, and I’m proud he was. I want to thank the WWE for a great career, for taking a chance on me and allowing me the keys to the car for a while. I will always represent the WWE wherever I go, I am proud of my 13 ½ years with the WWE. And, I am proud of the WWE for cleaning up a great sport to make it more healthy to everyone that is a part.”

Unfortunately for JBL fans, his days in the ring are likely over. “However, I have no current plans on doing anything in the future on a professional level with WWE. I don’t plan on doing commentary. In fact, it hasn’t even been brought up to me. I don’t plan on being an on air character. I plan on starting the next chapter in my life, and closing the door on this one.”

The former Intercontinental champ is working with Charlie Haas to help him grow his energy drink store located in Texas. He says working on Layfield Energy, working with Haas, and working on some other projects will keep him rather busy after his WWE career.

“I plan on hunkering down and building my companies. I plan on building a world class distribution service in Nashville and a top notch global beverage company,” JBL said. “I have a deal in the banking world that I hope to get done that will allow the disabled the first fully access bank online.”
