#4 Wants to return: Ex-WWE star Santino Marella
The former champion later became a comedy character in WWE and even dressed up as a woman called Santina Marella. Marella was released from WWE back in 2016, and he has made a handful of appearances since.
Marella's daughter has also started to train to be part of the wrestling business since her father now runs his own wrestling school.
“I do want to go back into the business but as a commentator. I would have to be Anthony Carelli because I don’t want to do commentary as Santino. I think there are going to be opportunities for me post-COVID with one of the major companies. I always want to go to WWE first because they changed my life and I’m loyal, but if they don’t have an opportunity, I’ll go somewhere else."
Marella recently revealed that he would be open to returning to WWE in the future. However, it would have to be under his real name and as a commentator, since he has no desire to continue his Marella gimmick.
