Santino On How He's Stayed On WWE TV, Career Winding Down


Santino Marella is quoted in a new piece by Newsday to promote his anti-bullying appearance on Wednesday at Dylan's Candy Bar on 3rd Avenue in New York City at 3 p.m. He's grabbing a lot of attention for saying that he's "winding down."

Below is an excerpt:

"I realize I'm one of the older guys in the locker room, and I'm 5-foot-10. These young bucks are 27 years old and 250 pounds," said Marella, adding that he's interested in non-wrestling roles in WWE, including as a possible general manager on Raw or Smackdown or hosting a talk show on the WWE Network. "That way I'd be able to stay on the program and entertain people and be an even bigger part of the show . . . I'm definitely winding down."
