Not Retiring Does Not Mean You're Hogging The "Spotlight"

Hey guys, hope all is well and I appreciate you guys that take the time out to read my blogs.
I am so sick of hearing people say that old wrestlers like Ric Flair, The Undertaker, Triple H and other guys are hogging the spotlight because they haven't retired yet. I have a point to defend these wrestlers.
First of, with the wrestlers I've named, all of them still wrestle but at the same time they put other young wrestlers over as well. Whats the big deal? Taker ofcourse has had some title reigns even in 2009 and I will admit that Taker hasn't really put anyone over lately but thats not his fault. Its against the character of "The Undertaker" to put anyone over because you cant have a deadman losing to Wade Barrett.
What bothers me is who in the hell are we to tell people when it is time to freakin retire? Do you guys know how hard it is to make it to the WWE? Do you guys know the amount of training and hardwork involved in becoming a professional wrestler for the WWE and TNA?
Let me make this clear. If my ass was in the WWE I would wrestle until I'm 60 because I fought my ass off to get here. Why fight to make it there if you're going to retired at 35 or something.
These older wrestlers love the damn business with all their hearts. Wrestling is all these people have I mean in the wrestling business you are away from your family and on the road all the time. Wrestling is the only love that many of these people have. And we are going to sit here and tell them when its time to wrap it up?
I have no problem watching guys like Triple H and Ric Flair perform as long as they keep the world title belts away from them because those titles should be used for developed talent that paid their dues like Cena, Swagger, Kofi, John Morrison and many others. As long as the older wrestlers can put the younger talent over than its no problem in my opinion.
I think older wrestlers mixed with young talent is great for the business as long as the older talent aren't headlining the shows like TNA does. I believe younger fans should watch wrestlers like Triple H so they can learn more about the history of this business.
Thanks for reading and be safe guys, I appreciate you all taking the time. Please leave feedback.
