Why is this list here?

The number of early deaths in professional wrestling is sadly way too high.

This list was originally created in the week after the passing of Macho Man Randy Savage. An article followed soon after on Yahoo! Sports that highlighted over 25% of the wrestlers at WrestleMania VII had since died. Pretty much every wrestling journalist has weighed in with views on the topic of deaths in pro wrestling at one time or another.

This list isn’t intended to be morbid; it’s simply here to highlight the number of well-known wrestlers with PPV exposure that have died before their time.
