WWE has brought back many WWE legends over the years. This has been especially evident as part of the recent Women's Revolution. Many WWE Hall of Famers have been able to lace up their wrestling boots one more time.

Whilst several former WWE Superstars have obviously aged over the years and look as fans would imagine, there are others who have hardly aged at all.

Many wrestlers have managed to unlock the secrets to youth. They now look a fraction of their age since they are no longer under the pressure of the schedule that comes with a WWE contract. It appears that there are two different reactions to a WWE release. Many former WWE stars have found ways to push forward and look so much better than they once did.

The following list looks at five former WWE Superstars who don't look their age, whether they look much older or much younger than they are.


#5. Older than she looks: WWE Hall of Famer Torrie Wilson - 45

Torrie Wilson has the unique record of having not won a Championship throughout her time in WWE. The former Diva spent 7 years on WWE's main roster.

Torrie Wilson has been able to return to WWE several times throughout the Women's Revolution. She was even inducted into the Hall of Fame back in 2019. The former WWE star has stepped into the world of fitness since her departure from the company. It appears that this has allowed the Playboy Covergirl to retain her youthful looks.

Wilson is now 45 years old, but it's hard to believe this given her recent Royal Rumble appearances. Many fans have commented on the fact that Wilson looks at least 10 years younger than her actual age.

Wilson's current fitness and nutrition regime has allowed her to remain as youthful as possible and to make several returns to WWE. This wouldn't have been possible if the former star hadn't aged so gracefully.

Wilson's last WWE appearance came back in January when she was the only WWE Hall of Famer in the Women's Royal Rumble match. Wilson was entrant number 17 and was eliminated by Shayna Baszler.

#4. Older than she looks: Former WWE Superstar Peyton Royce - 28

Peyton Royce was one of the surprise WWE releases that came last week as part of the company's budget cuts following WrestleMania 37. Royce's release ended her six-year spell with WWE that began back in April 2015 when she became a trainee in NXT.

The former Women's Tag Team Champion rose through the ranks in NXT where she became known as one half of The IIconics. The duo were then promoted to the main roster and later went on to become tag team champions at WrestleMania.

The IIconic's split came as a shock last year. The two women were then drafted to separate brands where neither was able to find their footing ahead of their respective releases last week.

The fact that Royce had been part of WWE for so many years meant that many fans believed she was much older than she is. It's hard to believe that Royce is still only 28 years old and now has quite the career ahead of her outside of WWE.

#3. Older than she looks: WWE Hall of Famer Lita - 46

Lita is widely considered to be one of the greatest female wrestlers in WWE history. This is why the Hall of Famer has returned to WWE several times to be part of the Women's Revolution.

The former four-time Women's Champion is perhaps best remembered for her rivalries with fellow WWE star Trish Stratus and the love triangle created between Edge and Matt Hardy.

It's hard to believe that Lita retired from WWE 15 years ago, after debuting in WWE back in 1999. Seven years as part of the company was seemingly enough for the former Women's Champion but Lita has still made several returns in recent years.

Much like Trish Stratus, Lita has obviously aged since her departure, but it's hard to believe that the WWE Hall of Famer is now 46 years old. Lita can still deliver in the ring and even pulled off her top rope moonsault as part of the Women's Royal Rumble, which shows that she has also remained in fantastic shape.

#2. Younger than he looks: Former WWE Superstar Matt Hardy - 46

Matt Hardy first arrived on the scene in WWE back in 1994, before earning a contract with the company a few years later.

As one half of The Hardy Boyz, Matt Hardy found success in WWE for several years alongside his younger brother Jeff. The former champion's career has been littered with controversy. The love triangle with Edge and Lita even led to his WWE release back in 2005.

Hardy was later able to return but was then released from the company once again in 2010 after seemingly forcing the company's hand. Hardy has since returned to WWE for a third time, but this time was able to allow his contract to expire before making the move over to AEW.

In his personal life, Hardy has welcomed three children with his wife and fellow wrestler Reby Sky. This could have added to the fact that Hardy has aged much quicker than his brother. Whilst Jeff Hardy doesn't look a day over 40 at present, it's hard to believe his brother Matt is just 46.

#1. Older than he looks: WWE Hall of Famer Batista - 52

Batista is another WWE Superstar that has been around the company for so long that it's hard to believe that he isn't much older than he is.

The Animal recently reiterated the fact that he is now retired from WWE, after being added to the 2020 Hall of Fame class. However, after a decade in Vince McMahon's company, Batista has made several returns.

Back in 2014, The Animal won The Royal Rumble and went on to main event WrestleMania, before leaving to continue pursuing his acting career. A few years later in 2019, the former World Champion returned once again to set up a retirement match against Triple H at WrestleMania 35.

The Animal has since made it clear that he isn't looking to return to WWE or any other wrestling ring anytime soon. This is because his acting career has now truly taken off. Given how much Batista has packed into the past two decades of his career, it's hard to believe that he is only 52 years old.
