Frankie Edgar enters pro wrestling match less than one month after MMA retirement

Former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar is just weeks removed from his official retirement from mixed martial arts competition and his last fight with the UFC, but that did not stop “The Answer” from getting involved in a pro wrestling event in New Jersey on Saturday night.

The event, sponsored by Stand Alone Wrestling, supported The 200 Club which supports local law enforcement in New Jersey. The “Contest of Champions” was held at the RWJBarnabas Health Arena in Edgar’s hometown of Toms River.

The event also featured notable names like Sting, Tommy Dreamer, Nick Aldis, Matt Cardona, Hall of Famers Sgt. Slaughter and Jerry “The King” Lawler plus others. The main event included Mike Bucci, a.k.a. “Nova”, also of Toms River, making his pro wrestling debut.

“I had an absolute blast last night in the squared circle for Toms River’s own Nova’s retirement match! It was great mixing it up with the guys and putting on a show for a great charity the 200 club,” Edgar wrote on social media.
