Chris Hero Doesn't Rule Out Pro Wrestling Return
Chris Hero hasn't closed door on his in-ring career
Chris Hero (Kassius Ohno in WWE) hasn’t wrestled for three whole years, with his last appearance in the squared circle coming all the way back in March 2020 in a battle royal loss on an episode of NXT UK. In an interview on the Grapsody Podcast, he revealed that he isn’t ready to officially retire just yet.
"If I was retired there would have been some kind of a celebration, a ceremony, a festival. A week long, month long thing. No, I'm not retired. I'm currently inactive. I just can't stay away from wrestling in any way. So as I bide my time and wait for the right thing to come back for and start having matches again, I have kept pretty active. I've done a bunch of seminars, I've done signings, of course. Then I kind of dabbled into the world of producing. It's funny, we use this term producing, but it's kind of like directing. Directing is probably a better [term], but I'm not going to start calling myself a director,"
Hero currently works the West Coast Pro promotion as a matchmaker, and revealed that he fell into that role by accident. Fans would likely love to see Hero step foot back in the ring, but it seems like there are no concrete plans for it right now.
