    For those that don't have a FaceBook page:

    I just want to say thank you to WWE, Inc. for allowing me to be part of an incredible entertainment experience. On Monday, I asked for my release and the company was gracious enough to grant my request.

    I realized recently that being a Superstar means sacrificing certain things, including time with my family. As a new father, my heart broke every time I had to leave to go on the road. I didn't ever want to miss another moment with my daughter, so I made the decision to be a full time dad and hang up my boots.

    I will miss everyone in the locker room tremendously as they have all become a second family to me. I want to thank my coaches and teachers that really helped me along the way: Fit Finlay, Arn Anderson, Edge, Christian, Kane, Jericho, Dr. Tom, Norman Smiley, and Billy Kidman.

    I also want to thank my boys. You know who you are. Especially though, a huge thank you to Hawkins. You were like a brother to me the last year and I'll miss you and will always love you bro. I wish you the best and thanks for understanding that I had to go be a dad. When she's older, and able to realize what happened, I know Mia will thank you as well.

    Thanks to all the dedicated fans of #ReksAndHawkins and to The #RekkingCrew. I would never have survived without you.

    Back to the surf shop. Or the other job..........

    But in all seriousness, at least he's hanging the boots up for a good reason. Family is a pretty good reason for doing almost anything. Now I wonder what they'll do wtih Hawkins. Jobber? Stripper like Friday? Or reunion with Ryder?

    Jobber to the stars. And he's not happy about this, because I think he might not get what being a married man with kids means. That's just my interpretations of what he said in his twitter post here:

    Gotta focus on more important things like being a dad. He did what he had to do.
