Moose Won't Retire Until He Accomplishes Everything He Dreamt Of As A Kid

The 36-year-old Moose got a late start in wrestling, beginning his training in 2012, after his NFL career, but he's quickly risen up the ranks in IMPACT Wrestling.

Moose is currently on the hottest run of his career as the reigning TNA World Champion and heading into IMPACT Sacrifice on Saturday.

Speaking to David Penzer on Sitting Ringside, Moose was asked when he believes his career could come to an end.

"I don't want to be one of those guys that is 50 years old and can barely move, but they keep wrestling because they can't say no or they need the money. Once I've accomplished everything that I want to accomplish personally, which I'd rather not share (those goals), then I'll make it out. If I accomplish all that stuff before I'm 40, then I might retire at 40. If it takes me to be 42 to accomplish everything, then maybe I'll retire at 42. Once I accomplish everything I that I always dreamt of as a kid (is when I'll retire)," he said.

When asked if there's a life for him after wrestling, Moose stated, "It's something I've thought about doing, once I'm done with my in-ring career because I love wrestling so much. Once I accomplish everything I set out to do, I'll hang the boots up and maybe pursue a role in training or maybe running my own wrestling company."

Moose is scheduled to face IMPACT World Champion Rich Swann in a Champion vs. Champion match this Saturday, March 13 at IMPACT Sacrifice.
