    He looked like a crazy nursing home patient who wasn't supposed to get out.

    I remember when this guy made his comeback in the mid nineties, he was fun to watch then, and doesn’t look much different in the ring now. Actually looked in great shape for 62!

    I’m starting to think people chant “you still got it” just for anybody that’s old….

      You have to be in shape to run on your knees they way he did last night (at age 62). You could blow out a quad or hamstring like that. He's an old-school wrestler with an amateur wrestling background.
