Looking at this list, it looks like 80% of the guys I grew up watching on Saturday Night Main Events and Saturday morning Superstars in the 1980's are dead now  Cry

i think you'll find that RECREATIONAL DRUGS, suicide, alcohol, pain killers, heart disease from being extremely overweight after retiring caused 95 percent of those deaths, not steroids.

i know who all the Von Erich's are they wrestled all the time here in STL, wrestling is a huge "sport" in Missouri but i honestly have never heard of half that list, didn't almost all the Von Erich family commit suicide or was it just one of them?

The oldest one died when he was seven, electrocuted in the bathtub.
David, the second died of a drug overdose or stomach illness(still a huge conspiracy) in Japan.
Mike, the third took a shitload of pills then wrapped himself up in a sleeping bag, causing death.
Chris, the fourth shot himself in the head.
Kerry, the fifth shot himself in the heart.

Only Kevin von Erich is still alive.

I know well over 60 of those wrestlers. It takes a fan of wrestling to know them, of which I am.
