This is so fucking sad, what is it with wrestlers?
been fighting alcohol and drug addictions most of his life. because he was found in his hotel room makes me think that it might be related.
regardless, he was a great wrestler and brilliant performer.
reading a lot about dead wrestlers recently
Andre the Giant
Kerry von Erich (Texas Tornado)
the list goes on
i'm thinking of calling my side project Dead Wrestlers
Perfect and Rude. Just such a tragic business but I just can't believe this. I know Eddie had all his problems in the past but man....one of the best there was. Ever, in my opinion.
Mr Perfect die?! he was a legend! the Perfect Plex
had definitely some potential...
Wrestlers take lots of steroids etc.
They then have heart attacks in their late 30's through to 50's.
Wrestling is a bit crap
Surely there's nothing odd with wrestlers dying, they're human after all. Humans die, sometimes under freakish circumstances, earlier and later than expectations. But i don't think you can blame anything on their profession (unless it's something else like Owen Hart, damn that was bad) but only private external things. Yeah, not much point to this.
The leapfrog was immense though.
Anyone rememebr when 4 wrestlers tried to get into the, what was then famously named, WWF, Eddie being one, and he injured himself in his first match? Good times. Wrestling has sucked from about 4years onwards.
thats pretty terrible ... eddie guerrero seemed like such fun a wrestler whenver iv watched recently
was shot for his apparent involvement in Canadian organised crime which i always thought was odd
An article about Jake The Snake Roberts about a year ago, basically pointing out that he is being targeted by animal authorities due to the hideous conditions he keeps his snake in
That made me sad. That snake provided the cornerstone of my initial excitement gained from wrestling
I grew out of it soon enough
was Koko B. Ware's parrot, no contest
You could well have a point
But only a fool would overlook Davey Boy Smith's bulldog
also George 'The Animal' Steele, does he count?
But he does qualify for the 'wrestlers that ate the turnbuckle' list
that sadly i cannot add to
who was that guy (Afu?) who managed the Headshrinkers? He was always eating something weird, does that count?
Papa Shango? I don't recall seeing him eating crazy things, but he always looked as if he was just about to...
unfortunately, he was one of the best wrestlers the wwe still had left, so he's going to leave a big hole. i remember when he crashed his car on purpose, had drug/alc addictions, so yeah panic, it could very well be something to do with that. he was really coming into his own in the company though, so its really quite sad. they had actually booked him to take the title off the injured batista hadnt they?
btw jordan, skip was chris candido (former ecw champ). and moribund, that was afa-yeah he had crazy recipes for things like fish head pie.
didnt like one of them nearly kill themselves at the same time as Eddie ent in as well?
i read that a wrestler called 'skip' who was in the WWE died recently, but i cant remember him wrestling.
its probably likely it wasnt wrestling related, but that doesnt mean it wasnt fueled by his profession. like George Best.
i remember his first match in the WWF when he was a (relatively) skinny cunt
isnt dead is he ?
i thought he just grew a beard and turned in x-pac :s
iv got a really old video that has him fighting yokozuna ... he jus bounces right off him!
he isn't just pretending to be dead. Maybe the Undertaker will revive him for a Summer Slam special?
i think he may have died of an anurism cause i was watching wrestling (never happened before, i swear) and he faked out a judge and got the guy he was fighting disqualified and it involved a steel chair, and the guy got susper pissed and gave hima concusion with the chair, and i know wrestling is faked but, you never know
Just as he was about to be handed the WHC. And Hollywood Freak - using the word 'ghey' is fucking gay you twat.
It makes me sad to think that we'll never get to see another 'Frog Splash' or 'Three Amigo's' ever again. Oh well, did i tell you that i met Chris Jericho?
...didn't go and see his band did you?
Eddie Gurrero was a million times better than everyone in WWE (apart from Burchill and Tajiri)
of naming our quiz team after people who have died in the past week (eg. "mo mowlam, mo problems"), our team name this week shall be "deaddie guerrero".
Ray Mysterio was my favourite, he was kind of harking back to the good old days of britich wrestling rather than some meathead like Kurt Angle.
