8 Times Key Advice Changed A Wrestler’s Career Forever

Critical interventions that led to beautiful reinventions.

Longevity is one of the biggest challenges facing any pro wrestler, and that's never been more true than it is in 2019. With the endless cycle of television, pay-per-view, social media and media interviews today's roster have to churn through, it's legitimately tough to remain fresh for longer than a few months, if not weeks.

That's why it's often crucial for these men and women to lean on advice from those that came before or have their best interests at heart.

Every piece of guidance explored here helped (or, in some cases, is still helping) talent's never-ending crusade to fight staleness, be successful and appeal to as broad an audience as possible. In every example, the advice given changed their careers for the better, often permanently, and directly influenced their approach to business.

In an industry seemingly obsessed with always pushing forwards to create a more profitable future, it's important for wrestlers to keep their ears open and accept input now, whether it's what they want to hear or not. If they do, they'll find that some outside intervention can take them to greater heights.

It worked for these guys...
