5 WWE Superstars who made the most out of their time away from the ring

Sometimes success comes from stepping out of the ring too

Edge made the switch to acting after his retirement

WWE Superstars consider a forced time out from the ring to be a bane; new stars might be created in that time that could lead to their fall down the card. But sometimes, a little time away from the ring can become a blessing in disguise.

This list takes a look at five wrestlers who found a second wind during their time away from the ring – whether it be due to injuries or release from the company.


#5 Kevin Nash - Actor

Kevin Nash when he still had his “locks”

Kevin Nash took a hiatus from the WWE after competing in an Elimination Chamber match for the World Heavyweight title and becoming the first man to be eliminated from the match. A few weeks back, Nash had also lost a hair vs hair match against Chris Jericho which resulted in Y2J chopping off large chunks of Big Daddy Cool’s locks.

However, Nash wanted the humiliation as he was set to act in the Punisher movie with Thomas Jane and the character couldn’t have long hair.

Nash would have wished that he never made the move as the movie was received poorly by critics and his WWE career never recovered. He would even be accidently stabbed by Jane during the shoot.
