Former WCW wrestler Alex Wright has not competed in the ring since the early 2000s when he was a prominent figure on WCW television. However, Wright has not entirely ruled out the possibility of a return to in-ring competition.

During a recent appearance on the Cheap Heat Productions Podcast, Wright was asked if he would be open to making an appearance in the WWE Royal Rumble should he receive the call. He replied, “Yeah, of course. Of course, why not? I can still go. I’m still young.”

When asked about a possible scenario for his retirement match, Wright stated that there were a few scenarios, but he did not want to share them at the moment. Wright revealed that he still loves wrestling, and it is in his blood, which is why he has never retired. He believes he is still at an age where he could perform in the ring. Wright has fond memories of wrestling in the United States and would consider stepping back into the ring there as something special.

It is unclear whether Wright will ever return to in-ring competition but it seems highly unlikely at this point. He has previously stated that he was unable to sign with WWE after the company purchased WCW because he was under contract with AOL Time Warner. Wright was a former WCW Cruiserweight, TV, and Tag Team Champion and had a successful run with the promotion during the late 1990s.
