What a sobering thread.  But the same could be said about NFL players.  It's a sport that is very taxing on the body.  Athletes choose to engage in this sport because they love the rewards.

Guys in the NFL are the walking dead. People dont realize what they put their body through just to play week after week. They take a TON of pain meds then get shot up on game day and repeat that for 16 weeks

That is the worst possible advice for getting to 100.

Well, if you engage in anything risky it could potentially kill you, I've known guys who have died riding motorcycles, bicycles, parachuting and who were just out on a boat fishing. Guy fell overboard, boat kept going.  I work construction so I have seen a couple of guys die on the job. Thing is if you live your life scared, the days are going to be long.  Bodybuilding even at the pro level is still one of the safest sports around.  Allright, activities if you don't want to call it a sport.

british wrestling was hilarious


however 'big daddy' once killed 'king kong kirk' with a big daddy splash he mistimed in a match in llandudno.

we also had alan kilby a deaf wrestler who could never hear the bell. poor fucker.

when the US stuff hit our screens it was like fucking hollywood- in the uk it used to be watched by grannies who would attack the bad guy wrestler with their handbags. seriously different watching demographic completely.

other top ones


giant haystacks
the incredible bulk
catweazle- who used to tickle people to get out of holds

Because Hogan had it the best. He had the fewest hardships to mask with booze and drugs.

Hogan was a 3 trick pony. Never any high risk moves. He had a hip replacement due to yrs of his death-defying leg drop....

This is a list of dead BB-ers on a Dutch site, could't find the English version alas. But you will recognize some names:


http://www.ergogenics.org/491.html


(Several Dutch bodybuilders died in the last couple of years, some because of heart problems, others because of crime related activities).

He also was provided the best accommodations in so far as travel means, work schedule, compensation, etc. Vince's secretary even ordered all of his gear for him, and ring announcer Howard Finkel pissed in Hulkster's cup on drug-test day.


Hogan had not one care in the 80's.

Hahaha I just got a mental picture of that whole scenario, including the orders coming down from Vince :)

Honky Tonk Man said in one of those shoots that Finkel was as straight as an arrow when it came to partying but that Mean Gean was quite the wild man. The latter somewhat surprised me.

I thought jake 'the snake' Roberts died of an OD some time ago also? It's quite surreal to see half of the wrestlers I watched as a kid are dead :-\

I had no idea Artwood died. He looked like a walkin steroid pharmacy though so its no real surprise.

At one point - before the testing became stricter from media pressure - Hulkster's "cup" and test results went straight to Vince's office.

I imagine Vince would swirl the glass a few times, hold it up to an incandescent light bulb, and then "study" it for a moment before taking a whif and then a small sip - swishing it for several seconds like you would fine wine - and then proudly declaring, "The only thing in this piss is about $40 million annually! Good job, Terry!!"
