Sooner or later for all pro-wrestlers the time comes to hang up their boots, with numerous WWE stars who have done so after 20 or 30 years since they started taking their first steps in the discipline rings and with others who instead in WWE they only spent a few years there, for having played in many other companies before or because perhaps due to a very serious injury they had to stop fighting.
In the last few hours, Kevin Owens also wanted to talk about his retirement, which obviously is not yet imminent, but which could still come any day in the future, with the Canadian of the McMahon family who expressed his weight on the matter, with a rather strange tweet that arrived on his social pages and that left his fans quite doubtful.
In the late afternoon of yesterday, (in late Italian evening), Kevin Owens wrote on his Twitter profile: "I really can't say anything else except thanks to all your continued support and kind words. They really mean a lot.
The day I stop giving my all in that ring will be the day I leave. Not a second before. PS Rey Mysterio is the best." With a truly heartfelt thanks to the fans but also with completely free compliments arrived at the address of Rey Mysterio, now undisputed legend of the whole pro-wrestling world, Kevin Owens wanted to communicate to all his supporters that he will not leave the wrestling ring (in general and not exactly that of the WWE), if not when he will no longer be able to give his best.
Who knows why these words of thanks to his supporters came out of his heart to Kevin Owens and why he wanted to congratulate Rey Mysterio in a public way?
In the last few hours, several rumors have emerged that Owens want to be interested in a possible signing with AEW when his contract with McMahon expires, but for the moment there is still nothing concrete at stake, still missing a few years at the end of his deal with WWE.
I really don’t know what to say other than thank you all for your continued support and kind words. It really means a lot.
The day I stop giving it my absolute all in that ring is the day I walk away. Not a second sooner.
Rey Mysterio is the best. — Kevin (@FightOwensFight) October 26, 2021
Medvedev: "Now it's easier to beat Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal!"
The last year has seen more and more the decline of the Big 3, or the three tennis players who more than any other have made tennis history.
We are obviously talking about Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. It must be said that this meaning does not apply to the number one in the world Novak Djokovic, author of one of his best seasons ever and winner of 3 Grand Slam titles (one step away from the fourth).
As for Federer and Nadal, however, the situation is different with these two players now constantly struggling with physical problems; both have not played for months and for Federer, now over 40, we have reached the final stages of his career.
Nadal played a season between highs and lows but a heavy foot injury suffered during Roland Garros led him to say goodbye in advance to the 2021 season. Both Federer and Nadal will not take part in the ATP Finals at the end of the year, which this one year will be played in Turin, and we expect to know when they will be able to return to the field.
Federer recently underwent yet another knee operation and, above all, the shadow of retirement hangs over the Swiss. During an advertising campaign for a Russian company, the number two in the world and recent winner of the US Open 2021 Daniil Medvedev spoke of the now increasingly evident decline of the Big 3, focusing precisely on Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.
Here are his words: "I think that the three of them are the best three tennis players in history, about 17 or 18 of the last 20 Grand Slams have been won by them. Like everything in life, however, there will come a time when their domination will pass but above all for quests.
year it should be remembered that both Nadal and Federer have been injured for a long time. I am lucky and honored to have faced them and let's say that I feel lucky to have faced them in the final stages of their career because they are getting older and let's say that it is less difficult to beat them."
