Stick around for a bit. Wrestlers are a lot like other athletes in that they have to hang up their boots one day. That is a bit trickier for a wrestler though as it is rather easy to be able to stick around for one more match here or there, especially with so many promotions available. It seems that the news of someone no longer wrestling might have been a bit exaggerated.
Earlier this year, Dirty Dango (formerly known as Fandango in WWE) said that he would be stepping away from wrestling in the next few months. The tweet also said “Goodbye forever”, which was taken to mean that Dango was retiring. However, in an interview with the Dropkick Podcast, Dango explained that he was not retiring, but rather not wrestling as much. Dango said that he will be putting more time into his construction business as well as having surgery on his knee. He also wanted to get away from Twitter, which he described as a very negative platform.
Opinion: I can see why there was some confusion and thankfully Dango did not suggest that people were wrong for thinking he was retiring. Dango is a talented star and at 38 years old, should still have more than a few years left in him. If he wants to take a break then good for him on being able to do so though, as there is nothing wrong with taking a breather from something.
What do you think of Dango? Where would you like to see him go? Let us know in the comments below.
