Back in the past Professional Wrestlers could go as long as they could go and nobody really cared, but now The Internet Wrestling Community has pretty much labeled Thirty-Five to be 'The Turning Point' and once you reach Forty you should stop being active in Professional Wrestling altogether doesn't matter how healthy you've stayed throughout your career.

not very up to date so not sure what prompted this, but knowing you there is an article or another user's response to another question that incited this...

But, 40 has long been considered the 'two minute warning' on most in Ring careers... it's a round number and by most accounts is about when normal people hit the mid-life crisis...

sure there are plenty of exceptions on guys who can still go, but almost too the man, unless they're part time, and/or well protected, their post-40 Career is a shadow of their Prime
- personally i look at 45-50+ as the point which I start to worry about 'should they really still be doing this'
-TNA's use of Flair, Hogan and Sting all post/near 50 worried me exponentially more than AJ, Roode and Aries in WWE at 38
-- I'm a Sting Mark, and was willing to 'forgive' a one & done Mania appearance... but when they pushed his stay to include a (fateful) Title match with Seth I was no longer a proponent
