He’s not done. It can be very difficult for a wrestler to officially retire, as there are so many places in the world where they can go to continue their career. You never know when you are going to see someone pop up for one more appearance here or there and it can make things more than a bit complicated. Now a former WWE star is clarifying his status and it might not be what you expect.

In a new interview with Fightful, former WWE star Chris Hero clarified that he is not retired but rather inactive from the ring at the moment. Hero stated that he is waiting for the right time to return to the ring and begin having matches again, but insisted that it will happen. Hero, 43 years old, last wrestled in March 2020, though he has stayed around the wrestling business with various signings and seminars. He did not specify when or where he will wrestle again.

Hero has had an amazing career. Check out some of what he has done:

Opinion: Hero would know better than anyone else so he can say whatever he wants about his future. Hopefully he gets to go somewhere else and wrestle whatever or whomever he wants. He certainly has talent and all kinds of skills that have been honed from around the world, which makes him valuable to anyone either as a wrestler or a coach/trainer. That is something worth seeing and he will wind up somewhere again whenever is he ready.

What do you think of Hero? Where do you want him to go? Let us know in the comments below.
