Countless wrestlers have retired from putting on great matches, entertaining sizable live audiences, and putting their body’s on the line to do what they love…only to come back out of retirement and wrestle once more. The running joke in wrestling is that retirement is just a very light schedule. However, recently there have been some wrestlers who have taken their retirement seriously, staying out of the limelight and the ring, whether by choice or because they were told to do so. Here’s an interesting look at 10 currently retired wrestlers who would be able to come back and give fans one last great match. It won’t include any current wrestlers who have retired due to significant injuries (Edge, Austin) or those too beat up to be able to put on a good match without causing significant harm to themselves (Mick Foley, Terry Funk, Hulk Hogan, etc.)
HBK– When he left, he was on the shortlist of best wrestlers in the industry. He was physically moving well, had few serious injuries, and his character was adored by wrestling fans the world over. He retired because he felt that he had done enough, and he did the smart thing by leaving while healthy and in a position where he was still producing quality matches. He was in such good wrestling shape when he left that this one is a no-brainer, (people are actually expected him to wrestle again at some point) but who he would wrestle would be an interesting story. I’d love to see him wrestle Hulk Hogan in a rematch of their notorious Summerslam 2005 match, but seriously, he could wrestle pretty much anyone in a final match and it’d garner at least 3 out of 5 stars.
