47 years of age (30 November 1973). Age Cage used to go by the full name, but reduced it when he joined the World Wrestling Federation in the 1990s. The 47-year-old appears to be returning to his origins in the next phase of his almost three-decade-long career. He has said that he wants to become the oldest world champion in the history of the sport.
Christian the Wrestler was born on 30 November 1973 in Kraków, Poland. His name comes from his father, who was raised as a Christian but later became an atheist. His mother's family were Jewish.
He started training in martial arts at the age of five and a half with his uncle, Kazik Radzikowski, a famous Polish wrestling coach. At the age of nine, he began training in Brazilian jiu-jitsu under Roberto "Cyclone" Alves. A year later, he moved to Houston, Texas, where he continued his training under Alves' friend, Royce Gracie.
In 1998, he returned to Europe and joined the World Wrestling Federation (WWF, now known as WWE). He was drafted by the company into its main event scene, where he played a role in the development of several stars such as John Cena, Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, and The Undertaker. In 2001, he was awarded the WWF's highest honor, the George Washington Award.
He is most known for his time in WWE as Christian, where he wrestled on a regular basis from 1998 to 2005 and again from 2009 until 2014. From 2005 until 2008, he was a member of Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA).
Christian distinguishes out from the crowd since these accomplishments are uncommon in professional wrestling. Cage officially retired from pro wrestling in 2014 due to injuries acquired while appearing on regular weekly programming. His body succumbed to the abuse he had been subjected to since 1995, culminating in concussions.
Cage was one of the most popular wrestlers in World Wrestling Entertainment during its peak years in the 1990s and early 2000s. He is considered by many to be one of the greatest American wrestlers of all time.
After making his debut in 1995, Christian Cage became one of the main stars of World Wrestling Federation/Entertainment (WWF/E). In total, he appeared on television about 700 times between 1995 and 2014. During this time, he won multiple championships including the WWF/E Heavyweight Championship once. He also has two WWE Hall of Fame nominations.
In April 2014, it was reported that Cage had suffered two brain hemorrhages. This led to him retiring from wrestling altogether a few months later. He stated: "My career as a wrestler has ended because I have too many injuries to continue".
Cage was only 40 years old when he retired. He had already spent more than 10 years in the wrestling business.
Professional wrestling is a sport where participants perform various stunts for entertainment purposes.
WWE/Age 41 (born February 21, 1980) is an American professional wrestling promotion founded by Vince McMahon. He is also one of the oldest active wrestlers in the industry and the leader of the McMahon family dynasty.
His father, Vincent K., was a World War II veteran who became a wrestler under the name Vince McMahon. His mother, Linda, was a former WWF Women's Champion. Both of his parents are fourth-generation Americans and natives of Staten Island, New York.
Vince has been involved in the wrestling business since he was a child. He started out working at his father's store which sold pro wrestling magazines and other wrestling related products. Later on, he would go on to work for his father's company, World Wrestling Federation/WWF (1994-2001), as a booker, storyline writer, and manager.
He left the company to focus on school but returned in 2003 after receiving an email from his father asking if he wanted to return to work for him. Vince agreed to return and was given his own booking office where he could create storylines and manage wrestlers. Today, he is the executive vice president of creative affairs and chief storyteller at WWE.
WWE legends like as Daniel Bryan began wrestling as early as the age of 16. Brock Lesnar shattered the record in 2002 when, at the age of 25, he became the youngest person to hold the WWE Championship. The record has since been broken by John Cena who was 28 years old when he first won the title in December 2004.
The oldest wrestler ever was William "King" Kelly who was 48 years and 110 days old when he retired in 1903. He held several world records including being the longest-reigning heavyweight champion in history. His career mark of 515 fights (including mixed matches) is still the standard to this day.
In modern times, the average age of a WWE superstar is 35 years old. The youngest superstar in WWE is KENTA, who is only 26 years old. The oldest superstar in WWE is Ric Flair who is 45 years old.
Flair's son, Reid, is also a professional wrestler who works under the name Diamond Dallas Page. He started working for WWE in 1999 when he was just 18 years old.
Overall, these are some of the most experienced wrestlers in the industry today. However, there have been young talents over the years that have had great success such as The Rock, Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, and Chris Jericho.
