Top 15 Wrestlers That Are Still Surprisingly Young

The aging process is more bizarre in wrestling than it is in any form of athletics. The peak years of a wrestler entering their prime are usually the early-to-mid 30s. Athletes in other fields are often forced out of work or suffer a decline around that time by having to compete with others who are much younger. Wrestling luckily revolves mostly around star power and making money, this factor will always win out over age. The Undertaker, Triple H and The Rock still being able to sell shows and get fans invested in their work on the big events shows that age is just a number in pro wrestling.

All wrestlers have different paths in their careers with WWE often being the dream. Some performers will get signed at a very young age due to the company seeing the potential in them being valuable enough to take the risk on. Others enter WWE after a long road gaining experience in smaller promotions and learning the craft before getting the opportunity. Both concepts deliver different positives and there’s no exact science to finding success in pro wrestling. The only thing varying career trajectories will really cause is a bit of a weird age gap between performers. Fans often struggle predicting the age of many wrestlers.

Many of today’s stars and most exciting talents are quite young. The years of experience or an early signing to WWE makes them appear older. There is also the rare occasions of a wrestler having a look or persona that visually causes them to look older and causes confusion among fans. We’re going to look at some of those performers here with very talented wrestlers that are deceptively young. The various reasons for this will be examined and each story is unique to the performer with a couple of similar traits. These fifteen talented stars are all still surprisingly quite young.

WWE has struggled to develop their young talent over the past decade. Most of the top new stars were products of Ring of Honor, Japan or other wrestling promotions before coming to WWE. Bray Wyatt would likely be the biggest success story of someone entering the WWE system and completely finding himself. Wyatt's character is one of the more unique and fascinating transformations from Husky Harris into Bray Wyatt. Between the look and his persona, Wyatt carries himself like someone that’s in his mid-30s but he is just 28-years-old. WWE values Bray highly and it will be shocking if he never holds the WWE Championship. Wyatt’s young age gives him a chance at being an icon if the future goes accordingly to plan.
