On Friday, Chris Hero, 43 years old, defeated Timothy Thatcher in his first match in three and a half years. The match was promoted by West Coast Pro Wrestling at their Whiplash event in San Francisco, California. Following the match, Hero teased retiring from the ring before saying that he was kidding and setting up a tag team match for the promotion’s next event on December 3.

Opinion: It’s nice to see someone like Hero getting back in the ring and still looking completely decent (at worst) in the ring.
