IMPACT Wrestling's Rhino Wants To Wrestle For At Least 6 More Years

Hang up the boots in 2027

Rhino has been stepping inside the squared circle since 1994 and he revealed to The Cut Pro Wrestling Podcast that he wants to keep wrestling for at least six more years. After that, The Man Beast wants to work backstage and help find the next stars of the industry.

"Well, I'd like to go at least another six years. God willing. Knock on wood. Just to make it a good thirty-two and then find the next Randy Orton, find the next Rock, John Cena. You know, the next [Stone Cold Steve] Austin, the next Triple H, and the next Lita, the next Trish Stratus, the next Sasha Banks. Just to help nurture them and make them grow and become a major draw. The next Charlotte Flair in the wrestling world," Rhino said.

"That way -- you always want to leave it better than what you found it, you know, with anything you do. Definitely, I want to do that. Along with, obviously, World Champion is always in your mind and that's definitely more towards the front of my mind than anything, but I really don't talk about that much. That's a personal hunger and goal and drive."

If Rhino does indeed wrestle until 2027, he will be 51-years-old by the time he hangs up his boots. The former NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion is currently in his second stint with IMPACT Wrestling and recently joined the Violent By Design stable.
