WATCH: Muhammad Hassan returns to the ring for the first time in 13 years

It’s a good time to be a wrestling fan. WWE is on track to have their most profitable year in history and they have the most loaded roster ever. The independent scene is hot with a mix of the best athletes and former WWE stars attempting to reinvent themselves in hopes for another run.

Sometimes you’ll see a name that you haven’t heard from in years. Muhammad Hassan (Mark Copani) has not wrestled since his last match in WWE back in 2005. He was released by the company after a controversial angle involving The Undertaker and wrestling fans haven’t heard much from him during the past 13 years.

During his time away, he got his masters degree and he has been working as a building administrator. He also worked as a social studies teacher because he likes to work with kids. His story is a good one, unlike some wrestlers that can’t seem to find their footing outside of wrestling once their in-ring career is over.

Part of the reason why he hasn’t wrestled is because of nagging neck and back injuries but the 36-year-old returned for one match on Saturday night at Dynasty Wrestling’s King Of Thrones event in Amsterdam, New York.

Hassan got the win over Greek God Papadon. He looks like he is in great shape so, perhaps, he has one more run left in him.
