10 oldest Pro-wrestlers who are still wrestling in 2019
Pro-wrestling is hands down one of the most demanding jobs out there. The industry turns a nobody into a star in a matter of months, or even days in rare cases. Legendary Superstars like Stone Cold Steve Austin, Hulk Hogan, and The Rock were once the top stars in WWE, but are now nowhere to be seen on its weekly shows.
The reason? A pro-wrestler has a limited shelf life and there comes a time when their body starts giving up and becomes prone to regular injuries. Austin's career was cut short way back in 2003 due to neck injuries, while Hogan is at a point in his life where wrestling should be the last thing on his mind.
Surprisingly, there are a bunch of old wrestlers who are still wrestling to this day. Some do it to make ends meet, while others love pro-wrestling too much to step aside. Let's take a look at ten oldest wrestlers who are still competing.
#10 & #9 The Rock 'N' Roll Express
Robert Gibson (61) and Ricky Morton (62) teamed for the first time way back in the 80s, in Memphis. They went on to hold the NWA Tag Team titles on eight occasions. By the early 90s, the team had begun losing steam, and a change was direly needed.
Soon, Morton turned heel on his longtime partner and joined The New York Foundation in WCW. The duo also had a short stint in WWE during the Attitude Era, as a part of the NWA angle.
Decades after their heyday, the team is still actively wrestling, and were last seen competing against Jey and Mark Briscoe at the ROH Honor For All event on August 25. The team lost the match, much like their previous encounter against the Briscoes at the NWA Crockett Cup in April 2019.
