It looks like the majority of the people on that list weren't even 50 when they died.

I still have the issue of WWF Magazine when Tornado commited suicide. It was more famiily orintated then so in the magazine they said that he had a heart attack. Also, one wrestler that I don't see mentioned on the lists is "Tugboat" a.k.a. "Typhoon". I remember after he got out of the WWF he worked some night-time job and was up on the roof of a tall building (for whatever reason). Anyways, a WWF fanatic, dressed as the Undertaker pushed Tugboat off the building and he died. I'm not making this up at all ya'll. I saw it in more then one newspaper. Shit was seriously sad.

I read somewhere that the texas tornado had like 4 or 5 brothers, and they all commited suicide too at one point or another over the years. Couple before him a couple after I think I read. Seriously fucked up shit :(

most of these guys died cause of the drugs and steroids they use to take ....... Yokozuna died cause of his weight , Owen is just a heartbreaking story ........ what a shame

I think most of the guys you mentioned had problems because they were just so big.  Drugs were involved with a lot of them, but their size and all that weight they were carrying around (even if it was muscle!) had to make your heart be strained already... add on drinking and drugs, and your heart can't take it as well as a skinny person would or even just a normally sized person.

Dino Bravo was a pretty strange story.  Basically, they found him in his home, sitting in his lazy boy shot to death.  This wasn't just someone broke in and shot him, the entire side of his house was riddled with bullet holes, they shot him from the street.  Some pretty serious shit.  Most people claim it was due to gambling debts, but I don't understand why the mob works that way, it looks like he'd be better to them alive, they can't get any money if he's dead. 

BTW, a similar thing happened to Sonny Liston, the heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali (er, Cassius Clay) knocked out to become the world champ his first time. 

The Texas Tornado is truly a SAD SAD story, he was a member of the Von Erich family out of texas, who did a lot of wrestling throughout the 70's and 80's for a number of different feds.  One Von Erich died in Japan, get this, from complications from something he ATE (crazy)... One Von Erich killed himself early on, One Von Erich (I believe) died of a heart attack, and then Kerry killed himself, the texas tornado.  Recently, the Von Erich's dad died, and there's one brother left.  Before Kerry died, he had a bad motorcycle accident and lost one of his feet.  No shit, they amputated one of his feet.. the most intriguing part is this was WHEN he was on top of the WWF, so the doctors fitted him up with a prostetic boot, with a fake foot in it, and he wrestled that way.  You couldn't even see him limp, it's pretty incredible... and NO, it's not an urban legend, it actually happened.

yeah, i read that shit on a website tribute...he wrestled with the prosthetic until one match when his boot came off and fans saw that he was missing a foot...shit is really sad, the number of guys who died so young from overdoses, suicide and heart failure is tragic to me...im still upset i hadnt heard about Miss Elizabeth... :'(

Damn, u ain't never heard about that bro? It was at a PPV and he was dressed as the Blue Blazer. He was supposed to be coming down out of the rafters (making fun of how Sting used to do it in WCW) but the cord that was holding him broke and he fell to his death. I think they said his neck smacked a turnbuckle or something. Sad shit...
