It's unbelievable how many former wrestlers die at such a young age.

^^^ Thats it exactly, but I was a few years older when 'Taker arrived in the WWF... Saturday Nights Main Event, the Sat/Sunday morning shows, I can name all but 1 wrestler in the above pic, the guy with sunglasses that aint Undertaker, used to love it. Now, I will check out Raw every few months just to see..... Didnt P.Bearer used to wrestle? Before he was a manager?

Whoops, as an addendum, I was actually 6 or so when Undertaker started in the WWF in 1990.

Yeah, another big name from my childhood wrestling fan days was Razor Ramon aka Scott Hall. If you haven't already, check out this story on him. It is both sad and disturbing. I really hope he makes the most of the time he has left on this Earth and gets himself together.

Scott Hall has recently checked into Diamond Dallas Page's rehab thing. Nearly everyone is looking at this as Scott's last real shot at getting clean. Everyone has faith in DDP too because he turned Jake the Snake's life around.

Anyways, R.I.P Paul Bearer. I was never a huge fan of him or anything but he was definitely one of the most memorable non-wrestlers in the business.

Not surprising though when you think about it. The sterioids that are used (and they are rampant in that industry) just obliterate their bodies.

Back in the day for me means, "when I didn't know any better." I wasn't even 5 when Undertaker first appeared in WWF. So, the memories are awesome. Hulk Hogan, Ultimate Warrior, Brett "The Hitman" Hart, Bam Bam Bigelow, Ted Dibiasse, back when Shawn Michaels was in the tag team duo of The Rockers, lol.

After those years I kept up with it casually, and then when guys like Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock came into the fray, I picked it back up because they were such engaging characters and pretty hilarious. But, once they left, I lost all interest in it because it is fake and if there isn't any guys spewing out ear-catching one-liners anymore, it's just not worth watching to me.

I remember every one of those in your list. But, I pre-date you by a long shot. I remember watching it as a young kid when Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka, Chief Wahoo McDaniel, Dusty Rhodes, Jimmy Garvin,Terry Funk, etc.. were the stars.

Damn....now I really feel old.

Dead at 58... most people remember him as children as the funny little fat guy that walked to the ring with the scary guy. If you're a former or current wrestling fan, you'll nostalgia'd at this video clip here.

Also here is a summation of life as a wrestler back in the 90s

Jeez that clip was corny. It must've been pretty hard for those two to stay in character in front of a non-rasslin crowd.

I only go back to about the time Sting got huge. I remember the Earthquake - Hogan matches and Rick Rude - Big Boss Man.

I quit watching when Lex Luger and Ric Flair went to WWF.
