Two-time WWE Hall Of Famer Sean Waltman says he might don his wrestling boots again as he contemplates a return to the ring in the future.
Waltman’s career in the wrestling business is as unique as the man himself. He blazed a trail for light heavyweight competitors in WWE and gave the company one of its most shocking moments in Raw history in 1993 when Waltman, competing simply as The Kid, defeated established star Razor Ramon.
From there, the newly-christened 1-2-3 Kid became a mainstay of wrestling factions beginning with the Million Dollar Corporation. He soon changed allegiances and headed to WCW to wear the black and white of the nWo alongside close friends Scott Hall and Kevin Nash.
In 1998, Waltman answered the call from Triple H as he turned to the Kliq to rebuild D-Generation X the night after Shawn Michaels began his 4-year hiatus from in-ring action.
Speaking exclusively to Inside The Ropes‘ Kenny McIntosh, Sean Waltman discussed coaching at the WWE Performance Center, and says his own return to the ring is something he’s planning on:
“Well, before the pandemic started, I was going down about once every month for a week, for a week or two each month, and I was helping coach down there and I loved it. I really loved it. You know, just, you know, obviously, things happen and that has it hasn’t been happening. I’m open to doing it again. I’m really busy and, you know, and that. But it’s something I really love doing. And, you know, as far as getting back in the ring, you know, I’m going to have a few more matches. I don’t know if it’s going to be there. I don’t know where it’s going to be. Maybe I’ll promote them myself. Yeah. You know, but yeah. No, NXT I just I’m one of their biggest fans.”
Waltman’s last match came in April 2019 at WrestleCon SuperShow during the weekend of WrestleMania 35. Sean Waltman teamed with Japanese legend Jushin ‘Thunder’ Liger and Hurricane Helms to defeat Caleb Konley, Jake Manning, and Zane Riley.
