Hacksaw Jim Duggan has wrestled on some independent cards this year and i supposedly signed with Global Force Wrestling.


Believe Bob Orton Jr and Greg Valentine are wrestling occasionally as well.

Must be loads of luchadores. Pirata Morgan and Negro Navarro traded a Trios title about a week ago, for instance.

I have tickets for that.

Also slated to compete are The Rock 'N' Roll Express and Bill Dundee with appearances by Lance Russell, Dave Brown and Rocky Johnson.

Come to think of it, both Ricky and Robert fit the bill of guys that started in the 1970s and are still active.

These guys must be literally 5,000 years old between them.

Kenny Jay does an annual fundraiser in Minnesota and I think he makes a token ring appearance.

Re: Kenny Jay. He was 79 this year, but for in ring activity, I think he finished up in 1999.

Tito Santana still pops up at indy events, but I'm not sure if you'd count that as "active".

Ditto for Greg Valentine and Bob Backlund.

Domenic DeNucci still gets into the ring once or twice a year. He generally only works with Lord Zoltan, because he trusts Zoltan to protect him.
