This year is going to be very tough for WWE. With many setbacks that are likely to decrease the rating points of the show, what has added to their worries is the injuries of wrestlers. And some of these are so major that they might end the complete careers of a few stars.
Here are seven such men who might bid goodbye to the ring this year for once and ever!
Mark Henry has had his share of controversies and amazing stories weaved around him. The last time he said he was retiring, Mark raised his hand as The World's Strongest Man, for which he attacked Cena with the World's Strongest Slam. That was his last stunt. And since he is running out of such stunts with time, he might want to retire in respect when he is still getting some - this year.
Big Show has been giving us quite a show for 20 years and now, even his own fans are seen asking him to retire over and over again. His chances of retirement this year are high because since he is no threat to the title or the top spot- a fact he is aware of, he might want to retire when he is still being requested by his fans to retire and not booed.
For one thing, we know, The Rock has affirmed that he will be at the WrestleMania 32 this April in Dallas, and that rings a bell. He has been injured since a while now and hasn't really flexed his muscles in the ring. And if he says he will be at the WrestleMania 32, which will be the greatest wrestling show ever, we believe he might as well declare his retirement there. Right in front of the whole world and the cheering fans he might bid goodbye to the ring-, that's how stars do it, isn't it?
The Undertaker is my favourite, and it would really hurt to see him say goodbye to the ring, but now its time. It has been 25 years since The Undertaker has been showing us his deadly moves and now, he deserves a good retirement with all due respect. We believe he might retire this year because right until this moment, he has been known as The Undertaker - the feared one, and getting beaten in the ring by the new boys, he won't want to spoil that image after 25 years of maintaining it.
WWE has affirmed that they are going to sideline Randy Orton for an undefined time because of his disengaged shoulder. It has been said that he succumbed to these injuries after an accident at his home.
Daniel Bryan has been sitting as a bench-warmer since a long time and there are no chances that he might return anytime soon in the near future. This wait might take a toll on him and he is likely to retire very soon.
John Cena himself tweeted, "Rather upside down start to 2016 as tomorrow I will head to Birmingham for shoulder surgery. Life's full of setbacks but #nevergiveup". And since he is growing 39 this April, he might want to reconsider his chances in the ring. We expect a retirement annoucement happening very soon.
