Top 15 WWE Stars You Wouldn’t Recognize Today

WWE Superstars are ever changing. It is a company that is always looking for ways to evolve and sometimes this means releasing some talent so that they have the space to bring in some more. Many superstars find it hard to adjust to life without WWE and decide to continue wrestling in one form or another, which includes moving onto independent wrestling even though it isn’t always a reliable income. Others decide to settle down, start a family and then pick up normal every day jobs that ensure that their families remain financially stable or even decide to begin their own businesses as a new way to contain their overactive imaginations.

This means that many superstars who were a big part of WWE a few decades ago are now able to go out in public without being recognized because they have changed so much. There is no longer a strict training or eating schedule to adhere to, which means many former stars fail to stay as fit and healthy as they were during their careers, while others surrender to the fact that they are growing older and their appearance is changing.

The following is a list of 15 superstars that are unrecognizable following their departure from WWE, these are the ones that you could have walked past without knowing, or even spoke to without thinking. The ones that have perhaps grown old before their time or just realized that looking different from the character they portrayed many years ago is no longer a bad thing.

The former on-screen girlfriend of Smackdown General Manager Theodore Long, Kristal was one of the faces of the women’s division on SmackDown back in 2006. Since then, she had a brief stint in TNA where she portrayed the wife of her real life boyfriend Bobby Lashley. Kristal is looking like she is in better shape now than when she was a wrestler. It seems her release did her nothing but good.
