    We were chatting in the pub last night, and got onto the subject of the good ol' days of WWF Wrestling - Wrestlemania IV to VII era.

    I mentioned that The Big Boss Man had sadly died, and I was suprised to learn just how many have also died! Apparantly British Bulldog has gone, Andre The Giant and a huge list of others! Even Randy Savage's Elizabeth has dropped of the Earth already!

    Maybe its something they eat?! :eek: Anyone know of others who have died from this era??

    Amazingly Rick Flair (who has always looked about 75) is still going, and Hulk Hogan is still doing the rounds - albeit a lot less toned than he was!

    Paul.

    i was thinking about this the other week too, its a shame to see quite how many have died. hawk of the legion of doom, crash holly, curt hennig, the list is endless. i think its probably partly recreational drugs, partly steroid, and partly working your body much harder than its ever supposed to be worked, it all takes its toll unfortunately. i also remember watching live as owen hart died during a PPV, that was a shocking moment.

    its not all drugs - Owen Hart died from a ring stunt which went wrong.

    Also 'Flying' Bryan Pillman iirc had a congenital heart defect or something similar.

    But yes they do appear to have a shortened life expectancy.....

    i believe so. from what i heard, he suffered a heart attack after seeing a large spider. wouldn't have taken much to give someone that fat a heart attack though to be honest.

    I don't think you can lump Andre the Giant in with the other deaths. He suffered from a medical condition that meant he never stopped growing (which is probably why he was a wrestler in the first place: he was massive).

    It was the medical condition that killed him in the end. From what I've read, he was a remarkable man.
