December 2010: James Manley (aka Jim Powers) quietly announced his retirement from professional wrestling.
James Manley (53) is scheduled for hip replacement surgery and noted that years of abusing his body has left him virtually crippled.
James Manley wrote: “The past few years, my wife, my family, my friends, and even my business manager, have told me that I need to end my career before it ends me. Through these people and prayer, I have finally come to terms with it being time to hang up the boots, as they say in the wrestling business.” He noted that he’s canceled all his upcoming bookings, including his non-wrestling appearances. “My most sincerest apologies to anyone that was hoping to see me. Jim Powers was once on top of the world, but now James Manley is physically broken down and was trying to stay in the spotlight. Sadly for me, that spotlight has faded.. Please forgive me for not being able to perform for you, or attend any conventions to meet you. It truly saddens me to no end. I love you all, you have given me memories that no one can ever take away from me. If you happen to see me somewhere in my hometown, please say hello, so I can personally thank you myself. God Bless you all, and thank you for giving me some of the best years in my life.”
