Shawn Spears Reveals He Doesn't Want To Wrestle 'For Much Longer'

The veteran has one last thing he wants to accomplish before calling it a career

AEW star Shawn Spears recently made his return to the company, losing to 'Jungle Boy' Jack Perry on last week's edition of Rampage. It was The Chairman's first appearance since October. 

Following his return, the 42-year-old has provided an update on his in-ring future after a year of relative inactivity. 

Speaking with Chris Van Vliet for Insight, Spears said "I don't wanna do it much longer, not because I am being forced out of it or anything. Health-wise I am in very good shape".

He added that he has one major goal left to accomplish, inspired by the late Brodie Lee:  

"I feel like I've done a lot. I think I'm pretty level-headed. But I'd like to win a championship. I'd like to win championship in a major company and reason being is one of my favorite photos, ever is Jon Huber, Brodie Lee. I think it was his second time as a TNT champion.

"He has a photo where he's holding [the] title and he has his two sons with him. They are just so happy. They're like, you know, kids are so proud of their parents. But the look on his face - to me anyway - is almost like he knew it. He felt that he knows what this moment means to them and to him. I'm not jealous of any other man or human being on this planet. I'm very happy with who I am. I'm very what you see is what you get.

"I'm very good, but I'm jealous of that photo. Because he has that beautiful moment with his son and that's gonna live forever in that photo. It's gonna live with me forever. I want that same thing from me and my son. I want that moment and it would kind of be a nice little period at the end of a 20-plus-year career".

Spears also recently said that he wants a match with current AEW World Champion MJF.
