diminishing returns

Morning, Scott –

 

Wrestling has a well-documented history of wrestlers overstaying their welcome or tarnishing their legacy – Goldberg being the latest victim to such circumstance.

 

Hogan’s legacy dive bombed as well (for different reasons), and Ric Flair is a parody of himself at this point.

 

Who are some that got out and never hurt their legacies?

HBK, Austin, and the Rock come to mind – and CM Punk would be on this list if he hadn’t come back but he’s still performing at a high enough level that he will probably stay on it.

 

Austin did kind of overstay his welcome though.  I think Rock is the perfect example.  Also Cena, he got out when he knew that he wasn’t at that level anymore.
