Santino Marella has announced his retirement from wrestling.
The pro wrestler was forced to do so after injuring his neck for a third time. He had undergone surgery numerous times in the past, so this latest injury must have been the final straw.
I found Marella to be a funny WWE character, but the act did wane with me at times. Still, it's a shame that the guy had to call it quits.
Hopefully, the company will find something for him to do. As noted, his character is funny enough to have some presence on television even if it is in a limited role.
I also wouldn't be surprised if he's in a Hall of Fame class soon.
Yes, I am being serious.
I'm not stating that he's a main event Hall of Fame name. He would fit in on the undercard of one of those ceremonies, though.
