- Tony Mamaluke, who appeared for WWE, World Championship Wrestling, Extreme Championship Wrestling, TNA Wrestling and Ring of Honor, officially announced his retirement from professional wrestling at Saturday's East Coast Wrestling Association event in Newark, Delaware on Saturday, 15 years to the date of his first grappling affair. The 35-year-old headlined the show against Papadon and announced his retirement following the match. He then left his boots in the ring and exited. Mamaluke, whose real name is Charles John Spencer, reflected on his career on Facebook: "Final thought, I would like to say that it was all so wonderful, that I have no regrets , that I made a lot of money and been famous. But not everybody can be. I was a good jobber in an era where there wasn't any. I was a good hand when the era was all about me and not the show. Tonight I was Mamaluke for the last time and I am not bitter, broken or emotionally unstable. I survived. In the end I have to ask myself if the last 15 years were worth it. I will answer that question after time and reflection. 15 years to the day, my career began in a flea market with 3 people in the crowd. The show was cancelled that night for obvious reasons. Tonight I had one of my best matches in years. I finally got a chance to shine 15 years later. Thank you to my ECW family. I love you all. Guido, my brother, my friend I love you and will never forget all you have done for me. Frankie a better friend doesn't exist. Dean Malenko you will always be my idol. To the fans, I don't know if you ever quit got me but, if you did then thank you. Life is good, time to move on to a new chapter." - The former Kelly Kelly, Barbie Blank, will appear on upcoming episodes of MTV2's Guy Code, "the ultimate guy's guide to the laws of manhood." "On my way to MTV studios to shoot a few episodes for the show Guy Code!" she wrote on Twitter Monday. "Can't wait to share my advice on #guycode."
