In WWE, superstars never officially "retire." Instead, they put their bodies through incapable amounts for pride and dignity.
Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan and Scott Hall are just a few of the perpetrators of this offense. Their in-ring skills are limited, their microphone abilities are inadequate and, most importantly, fans start to be benumbed by their airtime. And when that happens, you must call it a day.
Yet these superstars intend to not only stay beyond their welcome, but to still main event, aiming for that one last chance of glory. There are not many who do this. Shawn Michaels, Stone Cold Steve Austin and Bret Hart are the most illustrious names of this exclusive list.
All superstars have that one irretrievable moment where they realize their time is up. And that moment is, of course, when they are passed their prime.
This slideshow will expose those very superstars who continue to fight on, even after their "sell-by" dates.
