Wrestlers who have died

Just curious. Of all the wrestlers that have died, which one still hurts the most? I know they all sting, but is there one that really affected you more? For me it's still Owen Hart. The tribute on Raw the following night had me balling. And Stone Cold coming out out and giving Owen a salute, and JR & King's final farewell before Raw went off had me in tears. And Bret's speech on Nitro was difficult for me as well, but I was glad that WCW gave him the time he needed to address his feelings to us watching at home or those that were in attendance. RIP Owen Hart.

Re: Wrestlers who have died

So many, along with what you mentioned, I think it's Mr Perfect for me, Big Boss Man is another, Hawk, Savage, Bulldog, Bam Bam, Eddie ... the list is endless.

Even Earthquake, Yokozuna, Hercules, Bearer and it's also quite sad about the Von Erich's, the list is endless.

Hawk & Savage stung for me as they were two of my favorites. There are so many like you said. There's even some I didn't know passed away, like Test. I always felt bad about the deaths of the Von Erich family members.

Re: Wrestlers who have died

Probably Eddie, I was too young when Owen died, so it was harder to grasp what actually happened.

Re: Wrestlers who have died

When Eddie died it was pretty hard on me... I also took Benoit dying pretty bad...

Felt pretty shit when Savage, Test, Paul Bearer, Bam Bam, Lance Cade, Umaga and Hawk all died too..

Re: Wrestlers who have died

Savage for me personally because he died before he ever got to make an inevitable return to the WWE or make a Hall of Fame appearance etc. The likes of Eddie dying was obviously shit too but at least there was no real hatchet to bury anywhere and he got a great send-off.

It's why I always like seeing older wrestlers resolving any differences with McMahon/WWE etc so they can ensure having their legacy properly celebrated during their lifetime (should the worst happen and they go prematurely).

Owen. He's not one of those guys who died from a drug overdose, or something along those lines. He died in a tragic, freak accident and was from all accounts, one of the nicest guys in the business. He had a wife and two young kids (or 1, can't remember). Just awful.

Savage and Hawk. I was such a huge fan of Macho Man and legion of doom when I was a kid.

The fact that he didn't die from drug overdose or anything like was why it hurt for me as well. And maybe because of the way he died, a d the facf that he came from a long line of Harts to wrestle, had family members wrestling etc made it hard for me as well.
