It’s a living. Wrestlers are like any other athletes in that eventually their career is going to come to an end. At some point they are going to have to hang up their boots and move on to something else. Some wrestlers are going to be around longer than others, but there are some who leave wrestling early and need another career. Now we know what a former WWE star is doing after his in-ring career is over.
Miranda Gordy was a guest on a recent edition of the Wilde On podcast and discussed her brother Ray Gordy, who wrestled as Jesse and Slam Master J in WWE. Miranda revealed that Ray is retired from wrestling and is now a police officer and SWAT team member in Georgia. Ray’s most recent match took place on the WrestleMania 26 Kickoff Show in 2010. He did appear at the 2016 WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony for his father, Terry Gordy’s, induction as part of the Fabulous Freebirds.
Opinion: While Ray might not have been the biggest star in WWE, there is something interesting about seeing what he is doing now that his wrestling career is over. Ray only wrestled for about ten years and now he is getting to do something else that he seems interested in doing. That is kind of cool to see in a Where Are They Now style and I could go for hearing some similar updates for other former stars.
What do you remember of Ray’s career? What is your favorite wrestling family? Let us know in the comments below.
