Chris Hero Discusses His In-Ring Wrestling Status

Chris Hero hasn’t wrestled since 2020 when WWE released him; therefore, many considered him to be retired. Now though, Hero has spoken to the Grapsody Podcast and revealed that isn’t the case, saying he is just inactive and can’t stay away from the business.

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.
