So you thought Hulk Hogan,Ric Flair,or Terry Funk are old to compete? Just take a look at this list and see some of the most dedicated wrestlers you'll ever see!
The saying "age doesn't matter" certainly fit for all of these legends.
Dory Funk Jr.
Even though he's old, Funk can still perform well than a lot of other younger wrestlers and to some of his other younger friends in the business.
But Dory is currently more active in training some of the future of pro wrestling!
He is the father of WWE Hall of Famer; Nick Bockwinkel. He passed away in 1986 at the age of 74.
"The Sheik" Ed Farhat
Ed Farhat (The Original Sheik) is the innovator of the hardcore style of wrestling a lot of fans come to love these days. This would lead him to become one of the biggest heels in the business. He wrestled his last match at the age of 72 on Japan in 1998.
Some of the wrestlers he trained was his nephew; Sabu and ECW Original; Rob Van Dam. Sheik passed away in 2003 and was inducted in WWE's Hall of Fame in 2007.
"Exotic" Adrian Street
The Welsh-born wrestler at the age of 74 is still active competing until today, mainly on various independent promotions.
Adrian Street is also the inspiration of the Goldust gimmick played by Dustin Rhodes.
One of NWA's biggest icons, Lou Thesz competed in pro wrestling until he was 74 years old. His last match was against Masahiro Chono in Japan. He would also be best known for his feud against Antonino Rocca.
He sadly passed away in 2002 at the age of 86. He is yet to be inducted in WWE's Hall of Fame but hopefully one day he will be!
"Bullet" Bob Armstrong
All of his sons followed his footsteps to become a pro wrestler.
Scott Armstrong - former bodybuilder and pro wrestler and is now a referee for WWE.
Brad Armstrong - mainly wrestled for WCW, who sadly passed away already.
Steve Armstrong - the lesser known of all the Armstrong brothers who wrestled for various promotions.
Brian Armstrong - Who is more known to many as Road Dogg and is one of WWE's Attitude Era top stars!
Bob Armstrong was inducted in WWE's Hall of Fame in 2011 by his sons.
She started off her career in the 1940's but mainly got big around the 1970's dominating the whole Women's Division of WWF.
Throughout the 90's and beyond Moolah would still stay with the WWF and occassionally would wrestle with her bestfriend; Mae Young. Her last match was in 2003 at the age of 80 where she defeated Victoria.
Sadly Fabulous Moolah passed away already. She's been inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame.
She is the longest active woman wrestler to compete. Even if it was against young talent; Mae Young can still have it go! Throughout her whole career around the Attitude Era until PG Era she would constantly have very memorable and funny promos!
She sadly passed away last year but her memories will live on forever to many wrestling fans, old and young alike!
He is best known for his hardcore style of wrestling and longevity in the wrestling business. But he's probably more remembered in the shoot match against New Jack.
Joe wrestled his last match at 79 in a retirement show prepared for him by ROH. In 2013 it was reported that his right foot was amputated due to years of injuries.
Don't let his looks fool you, this grandpa still whacks a punch up his sleeve and is widely respected by his home country. BBC made a documentary about the longevity of his career.
He started to wrestle in the 1930's and until today is still very much active in various promotions in the UK. I have all my respects for this guy, salutes to you sir!
