Former WWE stars return to the ring.
This past weekend at Battle Arts Pro Wrestling show in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, Santino Marella and Damien Sandow returned to competition. Santino worked a "MMA-style" bout against Randy Bynoe, picking up the victory. Meanwhile, Sandow, who is now going by "The Dao" Aron Stevens, defeated Timothy O'Connor.
Santino has made sporadic appearances on the Independent scene since retiring from full-time competition in 2014. Sandow had not wrestled since retiring in January 2017.
Oh pro wrestling, how I missed you ! I was victorious in my first contest after 2 1/2 years. Very talented young man @irish_oconnor . However, when I was 19 or 20 , And I saw an advantage I capitalized . This is what I want to fix. No weakness, no entitlement, no mercy. #prowrestling #cobrakai #smile #cut #thedao #damiensandow #nwa #impact #aew #roh
