JR Blog: Speaks on Wrestlers Who Won’t Retire & More

Nick Paglino

Jim Ross has updated his blog over at JRsBarBQ.com. Below is a highlight:

"Many of the most famous wrestlers from a multitude of decades are still battling today to stay relevant because they either need the money or they just can’t walk away from the biz and ‘smell of the popcorn.’ Some times I see things on TV featuring wrestlers my age or older and it saddens me. Same goes when I read of older guys who are still having to wrestle where ever they can get a booking to help put bread on the table after having successful, multi year careers in which many did no long term, financial planning. This is not a problem only of the wrestling establishment but the talents themselves have to be held equally accountable for not having the self discipline to prepare for the future which includes putting money away in a protected area and certainly paying one’s taxes."
