Hebner thanked NWA owner Billy Corgan and the current Worlds Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis for believing in his abilities.

Want to thank @nwa and @Billy for a great few years of nothing but a great professional experience. I learned & grew so much as my job extended more than just refereeing. Want to REALLY thank @RealNickAldis who has never not believed in me and my abilities. Time to move on 🙏#123
