Featuring exclusive interviews with Bill Goldberg, Bret Hart, Mike Tyson, Chris Jericho, Dynamite Kid, Amy Dumas, Rob Van Dam, Ted DiBiase and Randy Couture, Nine Legends profiles one of the greatest ensembles of wrestling talent ever put together. Through their own words, relive the defining moments of the heroes you grew up with.
How Old Is Too Old?
Former TNA star Gunner has given some insight in to WWE’s hiring policy regarding age. He told The Inquisitr:
They’re pretty honest with guys. There’s been buddies of mine who are 35, 36 (years old) that were told ‘absolutely no, you’re at the cutoff age.’ I’m only 33 and if that was the case, I think (William) Regal would’ve told ‘we’re not going to waste our time.’ What I hear is that 35, 36 is the cutoff unless you’re somebody different, unless you’re AJ Styles, who’s a little older. I’m still pretty young, you can probably get another 10 years out of me if my body holds up.
Tye Dillinger Injured
“The Perfect 10” Tye Dillinger injured his leg at yesterday’s NXT house show in Detroit, Michigan. He was facing Sami Zayn and landed badly, causing the ref to do the X sign.

Chris Hero Positive About NXT Run
Despite all of the rumors of being overweight and having a bad attitude, Chris Hero remains positive about his time with NXT. Talking to Sam Roberts he said:
I try not to spend too much time on ‘would’ve, should’ve, could’ve’ or ‘what if?’ because I had almost two years in FCW and NXT and I came away from there such a better wrestler with so many more anecdotes and just different little things that I can pull up and go, ‘yeah, well, this makes sense because of this’ because, I always say this in my seminars, I say that there comes a point every year when I’m like, ‘alright, I got it. I understand it. I figured it out.’ And then, just as soon as that happens, I go, ‘oh, I guess I need to figure this out a little bit more’ or ‘I opened my mind to this’ or whatever.” Hero added, “I’m very thankful for the time I had there and the little blurbs of knowledge from a Ricky Steamboat, or Dusty Rhodes, or a Perry Saturn, or a Christian, or a Lance Storm, or whatever little stuff we picked up from people passing through, or Big Show even, coming in and dropping some knowledge.
I’m happy, I’m so, so happy to see my friends succeed. Man, when [Cesaro] threw Big Show out of that [Andre The Giant Memorial] Battle Royal, I lost my mind. And then for [Daniel] Bryan to go on and take it home that night [at WWE WrestleMania 30]. I mean, how could you not be completely ecstatic for all of them?
