Dead Wrestlers List

This is the most complete dead wrestlers list on the Internet. In it you will find wrestlers who have died in the last ten years, twenty years, and going all the way back to the late 19th century.

While many people think of wrestling as a big joke, there is one thing about wrestling that isn’t funny. The death rate among wrestlers is alarmingly high. The first time time this story was covered by the national media was in 2003 on HBO’s Real Sports with Bryant Gumble. That segment featured Vince McMahon mocking the interviewer and slapping the notes from his hands. In addition, the only wrestler to speak up for the wrestlers, Roddy Piper, was fired after the piece aired.

There is much debate about how much effect steroid use has on the premature deaths of professional wrestlers. As this list will be updated with causes of death, where available, it is beneficial to have some idea of the side effects of steroid use. While the true long term side effects are not fully known, it is believed that just a few of the side effects of steroid use include: heart disease, liver damage, kidney damage, cancer, strokes and blood clots, depression, thoughts of suicide, paranoia, hallucinations, severe mood swings, and ‘roid rage’ - severe, agressive behavior that may result in violence.

  88. Eddie hit me the most. I had tears in my eyes. Owen was just an accident in a making. Very unfair, esp being from the Hart family. There’s just been too many inc British Bulldog. I used to watch him in the UK as a kid. Randy Savage I did see in the paper. I didnt know he had died. Mr Perfect I reckon was the first wrestler I could associate with, when he died. It was such a shock that someone so young could ge like that.
    R.I.P to Eddie, Curt, Owen & Randy……………………. Missed but never forgotten….


  89. Hey what about Big Boss Man..? Was that on the list….? Roddy Piper I didnt see him. But it is a long ass list…………. To many…. Too young…
