Ever wondered what happened to your favorite wrestlers once they left the world of atomic drops, full nelsons and jawbreakers behind? Well, wonder no more. Featuring beloved household names and cult heroes, this list reveals what 40 stars from the WWE, WCW and ECW got up to once they exited the ring for good.
40. The Great Khali
The man born Dalip Singh Rana – a.k.a. The Great Khali – achieved a major WWE feat in 2007 when he was crowned the federation’s first world champion to hail from India. Yet the former state police officer left the WWE in 2015 to found his own wrestling school in his Punjab hometown. But the lure of professional wrestling’s biggest stage proved to be too much, and in 2017 The Great Khali made a WWE comeback at pay-per-view event Battleground.
39. Triple H
A man of many names, Triple H dominated WWE’s “Attitude” era as a solo wrestler and a member of supergroup D-Generation X. And the one-time heavyweight champion has been just as pivotal to the WWE since he hung up his wrestling boots. In fact, Triple H now serves as the executive vice president of talent, live events and creative for the organization. The man otherwise known as Paul Michael Levesque also set up the WWE Performance Center, which now serves as a talent-nurturing platform for wannabe pro wrestlers.
