Its not as if he was doing well before his injury , unlike true past champions who were winning before their last accident ( Rainey, Foggy et al ) The fact is JT had not performed well since  his last WSB title.

Mind you as is normal for him at least hes got himself a reason to retire, or should that be before he was pushed ?

They forgot to mention...

that JT is also a working musician, and his wrist injury may affect his ability to play piano as professionally as he did- double the damage...
