Veteran WWE wrestler Kevin Nash yesterday took to Twitter to tell fans that recent battery charges against him had been officially dropped. But it also appears the 52-year-old may have confirmed his retirement from wrestling with a subtle change to his account bio.
Nash has been suspended from the WWE, where he is currently on a Legends contract, since an altercation with his son on Christmas Eve led to battery charges filed against both parties.
Only yesterday Nash tweeted that he felt it unlikely that he would be returning to "WWE Programming" no matter the outcome and now it looks like he has taken the next step to calling time on his career.
Although there has been no official announcement by either the wrestler or the WWE themselves, Nash's Twitter bio now reads:
"Kevin Nash, Actor, Retired wrestler, Tennessee Vol, Army veteran."
It is the retired wrestler part that will likely get the WWE Universe talking and with the wrestler himself taking charge of his official account it is unlikely there can be any miscommunication. It appears to be there in black and white.

The move may come as a surprise to many after what appeared to be positive news for Nash yesterday concerning the charges.
With the charges dropped Nash would, you assume, have the right to return to the WWE ring with his suspension no longer serving any purpose.
That appears not to be the case though, and another tweet from the one-time WWF Heavyweight Champion hints that Nash is unhappy with how the WWE were quick to condemn and suspend him after the December 24th incident.
If January 2015 is to be the time that Kevin Nash calls time on his wrestling career the veteran can certainly look back on a successful one.
Winning 21 championships during time in TNA, WWF, WWE and WCW he enjoyed great success both as a solo wrestler and as part of dominant tag-teams.
In his '90s heyday Nash held the WWE Championship belt for 358 straight days and is famous as one of the founding members of the New World Order - joining Hulk Hogan and Scott Hall to form the infamous stable of Superstars.
