Dead Wrestlers

Post by StLedge on Thu Oct 09, 2008 8:42 pm

OK guys, how about this, Years ago when wrestling was called WWF and didnt change because of pandas and shit, and censorship wasnt an issue, and back when it was really worth watching, story lines were half understandable, there were a lot of good wrestlers. However some of the greats are now no longer with us. Myself and a friend tried to shock each other with a wrestler that was deceased, and for what reason.

For those amongst us that liked wrestling or still do, or remember it as a child, list some of your favourites, and we can all see if we can smash your childhood dream of being like them, by telling you of their passing and why, or please feel free to add the name and cause if you so wish.

I shall start with some easy ones:

Mr Perfect, well the name had a lot to live up to!!

My fave single wrestler was/is Jake 'The Snake' Roberts (not to be confused with Jason the snake Roberts!!!)

Still alive

My Fave tag Team was The Legion of Doom, and guess what:

Hawk A.KA Michael James Hegstrand -- Heart attack (couldnt believe it), but as this is a poll and I cannot 'vote twice could some one help me??

The British Bulldog. Legend.

Heart attack.

Also, shout outs for Yokozuma (what a finishing move Laughing ) (heart attack funnily enough) and Owen Hart died doing some wrestling move or other. Either that or the shame of not being half the ledge his brother the hitman was.
