In 2008 it was Ric Flair and in 2010 it was Shawn Michaels. Who hangs up the boots next ? I'm pretty sure it will be the Undertaker this year or next year. Other possible ones are Rey Mysterio depending on his health, Christian depending on his health, Big Show, and Mark Henry depending on his health.

Re: Whose The Next Big Star To Retire ?

does kane count as a big star if so him

both henry and show signed long term deals during the summer so aren't retiring anytime soon and show needs to stay wrestling until at least 50 given his money troubles

Re: Whose The Next Big Star To Retire ?

The stars you've named won't be retiring anytime soon. Henry's had far too many opportunities to quit and has been treated pretty bad by the WWE, yet he stays. Christian probably isn't gonna go quietly either until and unless his body completely gives out. Rey may be the next one to retire, but given how hard he struggles to come back each time, it would probably take a career-ending injury to his knee before he does that.

Undertaker might call it a night at this year's WM however. It would be fitting imo and a good time to call it an end.

Re: Whose The Next Big Star To Retire ?

The answer is clearly Taker... And it could be this, next or any year in the next 5, and he would be the only guy in the same league as Flair or HbK.


Christian? That dude was OK... But to compare his retirement to Taker, Flair or HBK is ridiculous.

Personally, Christian can retire right now and I wouldn't care.



Also. Rey? Still not in the conversation with Taker, HBK, and Flair.

:HHH2 (but don't get too excited, it applies to just wrestling, not the shoveling business by any means)

Re: Whose The Next Big Star To Retire ?

Presuming nobody gets a career ending injury, it will almost definitely be Taker.

However within the next 5 years or so we can expect to see Mysterio, HHH, Kane, Henry, Christian, Show,Jericho, Goldust, RVD potentially retire (not that they're in the league of HBK and Flair of course!) Basically all the old generation and part timers should be gone allowing space for the new guard.

Re: Whose The Next Big Star To Retire ?

Mysterio is next person I see retiring. Big Show maybe as well.

So many guys you never know when they'll hang it up. Christian,Henry,Kane among others you don't know when it'll happen, but since WWE hands out these part time contracts all the time, we could see it happening to many of these guys.

He's not exactly larger than life, but Kane will probably hang it up before Taker.

He's got a nice leeway into a on screen role right now.

Mysterio. Undertaker can keep this Wrestlemania thing up for 2-3 more years. WWE will keep pressuring him to continue anyways, since the streak is always so marketable. Rey Rey is literally on his last legs, I'm shocked he hasn't been amputated yet with all the leg surgeries he has gone through.

Rey Mysterio then Undertaker then Brock Lesnar then Kane then Jericho then Big Show then Mark Henry.

I don't think either of the last two men are built to wrestle late into their 40s or their early 50s and anyway, it'd become a point of ridicule. Though if Big Show grew a long grey beard and was used as a strong part time "Old Giant" type character (like the guys from Norse Mythology or something) that'd be cool.

Mysterio, Undertaker, Rock will probably all be retired by 2015. I don't think Rey's body can hold up much longer, same with Taker, and they aren't many big matches left for Rock and he's already injured himself after twice since returning.
