CM Punk is the hottest commodity in wrestling right now. Already a WWE Triple Crown winner, multi-time world title winner and arguably the next "megastar" in the company, CM Punk has a vast future ahead of him that not many could have predicted.
The voice of the voiceless, at 32 years of age, is in his prime and has at least eight to 10 years left in wrestling. It is always a hot topic to discuss what the superstars of the company do once they retire from in-ring competition.
Retired wrestlers have many options to turn to. These range from announcing, acting, writing a novel, to even starting up a wrestling business.
Here is a brief look at a few WWE superstars' projects after wrestling:
Edge: A potential WWE Hall of Famer, Edge retired from the WWE this past April due to a serious spinal condition. He has appeared in shows and movies such as Mind of Mencia, MadTV, and the movie Highlander. Currently, Edge is displaying his acting skills in the new TV series Haven. Edge's last WWE appearance was at Extreme Rules, as he watched Christian earn his first major title in the WWE.
Jerry "the King" Lawler: Jerry Lawler is a legend in the wrestling industry. He has won more championships than I can even count. The king has been a color commentator for the WWF/E since 1992. He is still a part-time wrestler, most noted for his feud with Michael Cole at Wrestlemania.
Ricky Steamboat: The WWE Hall of Famer has accomplished many feats in the WWE. Steamboat gave the WWE Universe one of the greatest matches in history at WresleMania III against Macho Man Randy Savage. Right now, Steamboat trains future superstars at FCW (Florida Championship Wrestling), which is considered the minor leagues for the WWE.
