Long time DWA manager Col. Jonathan James, who announced his retirement over a month ago via podcast on his personal website, ended all speculation that he might return to the company with his "Big Announcement" blog on said website earlier this week.
There had been speculation that the retirement announcement was a"work" of some kind and the Colonel would soon be back in the DWA. While it is now clear that he will not be resurfacing within the DWA, there does seem to be an element of truth to the "work" factor as J.J. mentioned in his blog that he does wish to return to professional wrestling, but only on a small scale with local upstart promotions.
In a rare moment of class, the usually bescumbering manager showed no ill will toward the DWA or the talent within instead sighting a loss of confidence in his abilities, age, personal demons and the recent purchase of the DWA (by Las Vegas promoter Bill Brown) as factors for this decision, perhaps feeling that he was no longer up to the bigger schedule and greater exposure expected to come from the sale.
We at DWAFP would like to express our thanks to Colonel Jonathan James for the fun he brought us while in the Dynamic Wrestling Alliance and wish him the best in future endeavors. At this time there is no word on whether The Showcase and Shomari will be looking for a new manager.
