Sad..only 45. And Artful Dodger is right, many were probably hooked on painkillers, plus the roid use. Probably not a good combination, as well as spending 300 days a year on the road. Not great for the diet.

I forgot about Miss Elizabeth passing away, didn't know about Junk Yard Dog or Curt Henning either.

2 of these Von Erichs committed suicide. The other supposedly died when his intestines ruptured, causing a heart attack. A fellow wrestler found him in a hotel room and flushed all of his meds down the john.

The Von Erich story is quite sad.

Rather than start a new topic, I decided to bump this one... Another wrestler has died young.

Mike Awesome.. a former ECW star and short-time WWE personality died at age 42. He apparently hanged himself.

Here's the article. link
