Due to the increasing awareness of the various long term physical and mental effects of wrestling on the body, more and more wrestlers are retiring from wrestling at younger ages, so it's possible that this may end up being a DiscreditedTrope in the future. However, there are still enough examples that it probably won't happen for a decade or two.

Yes, ProfessionalWrestling is fake. There is no denying that, but it comes with quite a few advantages. For example, [[LongRunners pretty long careers]]. (In [[DentedIron some]] [[AnyoneCanDie cases]]). The planned structure of matches allows wrestlers to still keep going in their 40s, 50s or even longer[[note]]Keep in mind that an athlete is considered old at 35![[/note]], making wrestlers living LongRunners. Overlong careers are mostly a result of wrestling being the only income for most wrestlers, either because they don't have anything waiting for them after wrestling or for other reasons, such as the love they have for the profession.
