He is 43 years old, and that's getting about that age where a wrestler seriously considers hanging them up. Michaels retired around that age and Triple H and Undertaker's careers have largely winded down. Austin said if it wasn't for his neck injury, he'd have likely retired around 2008 or 2009, which would put him around that age. The reason I'm hoping Angle will be considering retirement sooner than later is because I think he will make an effort to return to the WWE to finish out his career there. Almost every WWE superstar who heads to TNA eventually comes back (Nash, Christian, Booker T., Foley, etc.) And I want to see Angle and CM Punk have an awesome match, I want to see Angle carry Sheamus to a great match, I want to see an Angle/Daniel Bryan match, I wouldn't mind seeing another Angle/Cena match, etc.
