5 WWE Wrestlers Who Ended Careers

Just reading through the comments on the last
video and you guys are amazing. Thank you for your continuous support and as always
a like on this video would be awesome. With that being said, let’s get right into this. In SummerSlam 1997, The Rattlesnake, “Stone
Cold” Steve Austin suffered a legitimate injury at the hands of Owen Hart, that would
later hamper his wrestling career and lead to his early retirement. During the match,
Austin suffered a broken neck and was temporarily paralysed after receiving a botched piledriver
from Owen Hart. I have kept this at number 5 because although Owen Hart did not strictly
end the career of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, the infamous botch was a major factor in Austin’s
premature retirement from wrestling in 2003. Austin’s neck injury did not stop him from
winning many championships, however, wrestling-wise, he was not the same. He had to adapt his wrestling
style to more of a brawler type style, which did suit his badass gimmick admittedly but
he was limited from performing lots of technical-based moves in the ring. Despite being plagued by
injuries, Austin continued to wrestle for a few more years until he eventually decided
to retire in 2003 after doctors warned that any intense moves performed on him could result
in him becoming permanently paralysed or even worse, dead. The Rated-R Superstar, Edge is undoubtedly
one of the most decorated wrestlers in WWE history, accomplishing a total of 31 championships
before his retirement in 2011. However, his first televised match in the WWE against Puerto
Rican wrestler, José Estrada Jr. ended in disaster. During the match, Edge performed
a somersault senton over the top rope and landed awkwardly on Estrada Jr. Edge then
went back in the ring and the match ended in a count-out which was odd way to win a
debut match for a rising star. A replay shed light to the unusual match ending and it was
revealed that Edge’s leg connected with the head of Estrada Jr. causing Estrada Jr.
to break his neck, leaving him paralysed and unable to move. His career in the WWE was
effectively over. The match between D’Lo Brown and Droz exists
as a chilling reminder that anything can happen in the world of professional wrestling. During
the match, D’Lo Brown lifted Droz up for a running powerbomb, however, was not able
to gain a proper grip as Droz was wearing a loose shirt. Consequently, when D’Lo Brown
attempted to execute the move, he botched and inadvertently dropped Droz directly on
his head. This caused Droz to fracture two disks in his neck and he became paralysed
from the neck downwards. The match has never been shown to the public, however, footage
of Droz being lifted on a stretcher has been seen in WWE’s “Don’t Try This At Home”
announcement. As a result of the botch, Droz’s wrestling career came to a sudden end and
he has since never been able to walk again. Bret Hart is one of the most gifted wrestlers
to have ever stepped foot in a WWE ring and he was truly the “Best There Is, The Best
There Was and The Best There Ever Will Be”. However, a botched mule kick from Goldberg
ultimately brought his professional wrestling career to an end. During the match, Goldberg
Irish whipped Hart into the ropes and then performed a stiff mule kick, legitimately
connecting with Hart’s head. Hart was severely concussed and the force of the kick actually
tore a muscle in the back of Hart’s neck. Hart continued to wrestle following the injury,
however, the damage was done. He later developed post-concussion syndrome and was eventually
forced to retire from professional wrestling for good. One of the most tragic matches in the history
of professional wrestling has to be the tag team match that saw former WWE wrestler, Rey
Mysterio and Xtreme Tiger take on the team of Perro Aguayo Jr. and Manik. During the
match, Rey Mysterio dropkicked Aguayo Jr. on the shoulder, causing him to propel forward
to the ropes with such force that the ropes whiplashed into Aguayo Jr. and snapped his
neck, killing him almost instantly. Unaware of Aguayo Jr’s condition, the three other
competitors continued with the match as Aguayo Jr. lay motionless on the ropes and Mysterio
even broke character to check on Aguayo Jr. After the match ended, Aguayo Jr. was rushed
to hospital, where he was pronounced dead at the age of just 35.
