There's an old adage, that all good things must come to an end.

And whilst fans may have wanted stars like 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin, The Rock, Bret Hart or even The Undertaker to have carried on wrestling forever, these things simply can't happen.

Eventually, every Superstar who enters WWE has to retire, with many going on to find other ventures to work in.

Many also have kept themselves busy in the wrestling world despite hanging up their boots, often working for other promotions as a wrestler, or backstage.

These five WWE Superstars may be fresh in the memories of many fans, but many in the WWE Universe will have wondered what happened next.

Here are five WWE Superstars who have hung up their boots, and where they are now.


#5 Joey Mercury

Mercury worked with Jamie Noble as J&J Security, often assisting then-WWE World Champion Seth Rollins.

Another former tag team champion, Joey Mercury’s departure from WWE was a shock.

Debuting on the main roster in 2005, Mercury first worked with Johnny Nitro and Melina in MNM, with the pair holding the WWE Tag Team Championships on multiple occasions.

After the group split, Mercury would return on TV in 2010 as part of CM Punk's Straight Edge Society, before being arguably his most popular as part of J&J Security with Jamie Noble.

A creative genius behind the scenes, it was recently revealed that Mercury was the mastermind behind teaming Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns together as The Shield.

Whilst he has competed on the indies on occasion, Mercury has become a backstage figure at Ring of Honor, working as a producer, where he has become a valuable asset to the promotion, given his WWE experience.
