10 WWE stars and what they want to do after retiring
Wrestling is a career that doesn't have a very long shelf life. There are only a select number of superstars who enjoy a lengthy career in the ring, whilst others are not so lucky.
Injuries, bad decisions and the company giving up on a character are all things that mean that a superstar is forced out of the company early, which could be why so many WWE stars ensure that they have a backup plan in place while they are still performing.
Over the past few years, a number of stars have hinted at retirement but not officially announced it. It seems that right now, there are already a number of current main roster superstars who have plans in place for what they want to do with all that free time when they finally hang up their wrestling boots.
#10. AJ Styles - family man
AJ Styles is considered to be one of the best wrestlers in the world right now and it could be argued that he is in the best form of his career, but that hasn't stopped 'The Phenomenal One" from sharing the fact that he hopes to retire from the business in the near future.
He wants o wrap it all up in 2019, which is incidentally the year his WWE contract expires.
AJ has been in the business now for almost two decades and in that time he and his wife have welcomed four children. AJ has missed some important moments in his children's lives over the past few years and it seems that now he is open to spending more time with his family whilst they're still young.
AJ stated in a recent interview that he wanted to retire a while ago, but his wife recently had the couple's first daughter and he is aware that he still has a family to support.
Shawn Michaels retired for the same reason back at WrestleMania 26, when he realised that his son was halfway to 18 and he would be leaving home before he knew it. AJ has seemingly been around the business for as long as many fans can remember, so perhaps it is the time that he had some private moments with his family and said goodbye to his public life.
