Whether you’re a fan or not, most people know professional wrestling is a taxing profession. Aside from the physical stress being put on the body from being tossed onto the ground every night and keeping in decent physical condition, it is compounded by constant touring and lack of financial stability, even for the most successful grapplers.

There comes a time when any wrestler hangs up their tights and puts their boots away in the closet for good. The lucky ones have a nest egg from their lucrative career that they can live off of for the rest of their days. Even fewer are able to jump into a regular acting career. Others? Not so much. So what do they do when their time in the ring is done?

While there are several stories about wrestlers post-retirement, both good and bad, there are others that have achieved an interesting second life in other professions. Here are some of the more interesting second careers of some of our favorite retired pro wrestlers.
