    Exclamation Pro Wrestler Death Count from the past Decade

    Below I have put together the number of wrestlers who died in that specific year, from this decade (2000-2009). There was so many wrestlers that I couldn't list them all, but did record the number.

    This is a very interesting piece of information, and makes you wonder a little bit just what wrestlers will be gone from this earth, not only in 2010, but the next 9 years from now.
    *****************************************
    2009 -- 33 wrestlers

    2008 -- 44 wrestlers

    2007 -- 42 wrestlers

    2006 -- 24 wrestlers

    2005 -- 29 wrestlers

    2004 -- 38 wrestlers

    2003 -- 41 wrestlers

    2002 -- 59 wrestlers

    2001 -- 42 wrestlers

    2000 -- 37 wrestlers

    This information is really misleading, I bet the majority of the wrestlers that have died, died of natural causes (i.e. Age)

    This. Ernie Ladd, Freddie Blassie, Capt. Lou, and many others have not died of wrestling related incidents. Why everyone blames wrestling for the deaths of all of these people is beyond me. Yes, a number of wrestlers have died in the ring, from overtraining, from substance abuse to to the road life... but most have made it through life ok and have lived until they died of old age.

    there was an almost 2 year stretch were we seemed to get a break from the young tragic wrestling deaths (trying to remember if there were any between crush and test??) and many of the deaths were guys who actually made it to old age but it seems like that sad trend is picking up again

    That list is depressing but very misleading. Many people blame all of these deaths on professional wrestling, but a lot of these deaths had nothing to do with the lifestyle that wrestlers live.

    On the right hand side lists the deaths from 2005-2009.

    If you scroll to the bottom it has a very long list of wrestlers that died. I got my number sources from there. It mentions everyone in nyr469's post as well.

    I'm sure that 20 yrs in the future we wont see this kind of long list of dead wrestlers because these wrestlers are the product of the old generation, today's current superstars are smarter (most have college degrees) and they don't have the same kind of substance abuse problems. Ted Dibiase jr. says that current superstars rather gather in a hotel room to play Nintendo after a show than smoking crack and partying.

    In fairness, Umaga only died yesterday.
