WWE Hall of Famer Tito Santana: Where Are They Now?
Thursday July 16th, 2015

WWE Hall of Famer Tito Santana was featured in a “Where Are They Now?” segment for SI Now on Thursday.

SI Now host Maggie Gray asked Santana about his retirement status, and the 62-year-old wrestler confirmed that he has not officially retired and explained why.

“I still try to stay in pretty good shape, I enjoy getting in the ring,” he said. “As a matter of a fact, my wife asks me from time to time, ‘How much longer do you plan to do this?’ I tell her, as long as the fans don't start hollering ‘Get out of the ring you old fart!’ I'm going to continue to do it because I really enjoy it. It doesn't get old when you step into the ring and you hear the fans let you know how much they appreciate you.”
