When a WWE program starts, we see the words “Then. Now. Forever.” And when it comes to the wrestling cast, you might wonder if some names will never shy away from the spotlight, no matter how bad they look in HD. Let’s take a look at the names that will be emerging from the walkway, their ages, and the name on their AARP card.

Take, for example, 9-time Wrestlemania headliner, and playing the role of host this Sunday, the George Washington of wrestling’s Mount Rushmore: Hulk Hogan (Terry Gene Bollea, 60). If you tried to hire a party host, you probably wouldn’t pick a former Suburban CommandoMr. Nanny, and of course Santa with Muscles, but then again, Vince McMahon is a billionaire, and you’re not.

More surprising than the return of Hogan, who has wrestled for every competitor that the WWE has had since he’s been wrestling, is that The Dead Man isn’t the oldest wrestler on the card. Most fans would bet their tickets on The Undertaker (Mark William Calaway, 49) being the oldest man booked into a match on the card. But a year older is “Bad Ass” Billy Gunn (Monty Kip Sopp, 50) who has returned to being a regular on WWE TV, and is keeping himself in the best physical condition of his career. Somehow, he’s as old as Mickey Rourke was supposed to be in The Wrestler, but he looks as young as Mickey Rourke back in Diner.

On saturday night, WWE inducts the 2014 Hall of Fame class, and while there is a posthumous introduction for Paul Bearer, they’re in luck, in that most of the class is still alive. Inductee Jake “The Snake” Roberts (Aurelian Smith, Jr., 58) has body slammed his personal demons (a series of drug addictions) and is currently working his way out of a submission hold in the form of a diagnosis of a kind of muscular cancer. Roberts has credited former WWE & WCW wrestler Diamond Dallas Page’s DDP Yoga program for his rebirth. And he’s not the only Hall of Famer still here thanks to DDP Yoga: “Razor” Ramon (Scott Hall, 55) was a late-announced inductee this year, and has also recently overcome his own problems with substance abuse.
