Old Aged Wrestlers

Any time Im watching old Raw episodes, I laugh at how hard WWE buried WCW for them all being old & washed up.

Yeah Hogan and Flair were in their 40s and most of the WWE roster was south of 32ish, but man how times have changed.

Now almost every male wrestler on Raw and Smackdown are over that 32ish, and WWE has WAY more over 40 year old guys than WCW ever has.

Hell, they are even sending out 50 year old guys all the time. Aside from one Larry Zybisko arch with Scott Hall, I cant remember them ever having anybody over 50 work.

How hard is it to hire more guys like Velveteen Dream, train them for 2 years, let them be on NXT another 2-3 years, then debut them when they are still 24 or 25?

That is real long term planning, not half assed Vince authority figure redux.

Terry Funk I dunno, it's impossible to keep track of his career. He probably has a retirement match booked next weekend. Flair was my fault, I thought he was 2 years older than Hogan, not 5.

Dusty I just forgot about, inexcusable on my part.

Didn't Orndorff retire when he was 45?
He did some retarded shit with The Filthy Animals vs the NBT in late 2000 WCW. Ended up hurting himself. Because that's what the world needed in 2000.

The blacker the berry, son.

That applies now more than ever given that pro wrestling as we know it is dying.

No to veer too far off topic

I loved in 94 how the WWF was promoting "the New Generation" with PPV main Events like 94 KOTR with Piper vs Lawler and guys like Nikolai Volkoff, King Kong Bundy and Bob Backlund receiving pushes to various degrees lol
