Several WWE Superstars are looking at life after wrestling at present since many stars are reaching the age when they are looking to hang up their boots and step into a less physical career.
The likes of The Rock and John Cena have shown that there are options to step into a career in acting following a stint in WWE, since both of their careers are very similar. Several other stars have also landed roles in movies, which shows that they have some potential to move into a career of this kind if they so desire.
Other stars have their own career plans post-WWE and are looking to wind down, spend time with their family, or even start a completely new career altogether.
Let's look at five of them.
#5 WWE star Jeff Hardy - Wants to remain creative
Jeff Hardy is a very creative individual both inside and outside of the ring. This is seen by his artistic ability, as well as the fact that he has his own band. The 43-year-old has been wrestling for almost two decades and has now decided to start looking ahead to his life after retirement.
In a recent interview with the Daily Star, Hardy revealed that he doesn't want to be a trainer or producer behind the scenes. Instead, the former WWE Champion wants to remain in a creative setting and the only way he would become a trainer is if his two daughters wanted to follow in his footsteps.
"I still don't feel like I'm a trainer, a coach, or a leader. I just feel like somebody who would never really be seen but has these unique ideas that might be cool for a show or a storyline. One thing I've always said, and I still feel this way, is that as far as training other pro-wrestlers, or people who want to be pro-wrestlers, if my two daughters ever want to wrestle and they're serious about it, that's when I'll get a ring and a building, and get my training boots on."
Hardy only recently penned a new WWE contract, so he isn't expected to walk away from the company anytime soon.
