10 WWE Superstars who aged drastically
- The never decreasing physical demands and the hard journeys on the road are sure to take a lot out from your tank and it might not reflect well on the body as well.
The current crop WWE fans might not recognize this guy but as far as the ECW fans are concerned, this man is a legend. It is his beer drinking heroics that inspired Stone Cold Steve Austin and the fact has been well documented as well. Back in his prime as well, Sandman was never a prototype superstar and ageing quickly caught up on him.
His beer belly and the entire body bloated up a bit in the recent years and Sandman clearly does not look like the 51-year-old that he is. Sandman is still not officially retired from the wrestling business and most of his current outings are funny rather than being intense as it used to be back in the days.
Lex Luger, if you do not remember was the one who started the Monday Night Wars. Back in the first episode of WCW Nitro, he showed up in WCW while everyone thought that he was still a WWE employee. It popularized the ‘anything can happen’ factor and another reason for Luger’s appearance being a big deal was because both the companies were high on him.
Vince McMahon apparently wanted to make him the face of WWE due to his good looks and physique. All these plans, however, came crashing down. Luger’s career never lived up to the expectations and the recent photos that surfaced in the ring suggest that he didn’t age quite well.Published 23 May 2015, 18:35 IST
