Working for WWE
Working for WWE may be profitable for wrestlers. Wrestlers who keep active and sell plenty of stuff can retire well. Not every wrestler is Ric Flair, The Undertaker, or Chris Jericho. Not everyone is Brock Lesnar or John Cena, wrestlers with enormous agreements and tonnes of gear.
Most retired or semi-retired wrestlers must find work. Some utilize social media to develop businesses, and many cash in on their celebrity at comic or wrestling conventions. Some celebrities forsake their prominence and take “ordinary” occupations or unexpectedly intriguing jobs.
WCW in 1992
Mideon was formerly a Satanic follower in The Undertaker’s Ministry of Darkness. Mideon started in the indies before joining WCW in 1992. Mideon was promoted under “Leatherface” and “Tex Slazenger.” He entered the WWF as “Phineas I. Godwinn” in 1996 and became Mideon when The Undertaker “sacrificed” him. Mideon retired in 2006.
Mideon, the actual name Dennis Knight realized another desire by becoming a chef. When WWE.com met him in 2013, he was a chef in Florida and had launched his own catering company. Knight entered a Favorite Chef contest on favchef.com in 2021 and wants to be a Food Network star.
Steve Blackman fought Ken Shamrock
Steve Blackman fought Ken Shamrock in a “lion’s den” Blackman now frees prisoners. Blackman debuted in WWF in 1997 as a martial arts badass. Blackman was noted for his fast attacks, no-nonsense attitude, and innovative weaponry. Blackman won the WWF/E Hardcore Championship six times with his butt-kicking gimmick. Once those drums hit, you knew someone was going to get harmed.
Jiu-jitsu after his wrestling career
Blackman taught wrestling and jiu-jitsu after his wrestling career. Blackman’s recent professional choice, though, is startling. Blackman Bail Bonds may bail you out of prison. You don’t want The Lethal Weapon when you skip court. After wrestling, Paul Burchill became a pirate. Incorrect.
Former WWE henchman Burchill changed his gimmick in 2006. On “SmackDown,” he introduced a pirate gimmick and beat Regal with a perplexing finisher. Burchill had a few years in WWE but never won a championship, however, he did feud with Kofi Kingston for the Intercontinental Championship. He was released from ECW in 2010.
