“I’m 60 years old and I pretty much live in pain to some degree or another every day. Was thinking ‘Boy, that’s really going to curtail things, but I’m able to move just as well’, if I vertical leap however, I look like you threw a mattress out of a moving car.

I would never continue in the ring if I felt like I was an embarrassment. I won’t do it. So far, and maybe I’m wrong, but I don’t think I’ve gotten quite to that point.”

Al Snow first made a name for himself made a name for himself in 1995, when he wrestled for Paul Heyman’s Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) and Jim Cornette’s Smoky Mountain Wrestling (SMW), before joined the World wrestling Federation later that year.
