Former WWE star Jamie Noble has announced what could be the final match of his career.  

In a post on Instagram, he announced he would perform on the December 11 WWE house show from his home state of West Virginia. The live event takes place in Charleston, WV, which is less than a two-hour drive from Noble’s hometown of Hanover, WV. 

Noble officially announced his active in-ring retirement in 2009 due to neck, shoulder, and back injuries, although he returned for a few house shows in 2012 and 2013 before becoming an on-screen role as a member of J&J Security in late 2014 and 2015. 

His previous match took place on the June 8, 2015, edition of WWE Raw, where Noble and Mercury defeated Seth Rollins in a handicap match that night.  Noble wrote the following on Instagram:
