Wrestlers dying young.

For the past decades, many young and famous wrestlers have died before they could even reach the age of 50. The wrestlers like Eddie Guerrero, Mr. Perfect, Rick Rude, Chris Benoit, Umaga, Cris Bandido and many more have demise from this world at a very young age. Some of them died due to heart diseases which was caused by excessive use (and abuse) of prescribed medicines and pain killers. Some have committed suicide due depression. And others have died due to some accidents. Who do you think is to blame from this. Would you blame the companies that produces wrestling programs?

We could not really blame them just for fighting. After all they are jsut doing this for living. I thinks they're only mistakes is that they don;t know how to not abuse the prescriptions that are given to them.

Yes, one part of wrestling is acting. But Major part of it are stunts that would really hurt them. Thus, doctors always prescribed pain killers to them. But they abused this pain killers which mostly cause their deaths.

Wrestling is a sport that is not kind to the body. Wrestler's take a lot of punishment to their bodies over their careers. The human body can only tolerate so much befor age retaliates.

There are also other sports that are dangerous to ones body. For, example boxing and other martial arts related sports. It is just up to the athlete how they will took a rest from this sports.

To be quite honest with you, wrestling is just like any other sports. Do you think those wrestlers don't know what they have got into? They are completely aware of the things you have mentioned here. But their thirst for adventure and action is way stronger than that. Some of us just want to live their life like cannonballs. They just shoot themselves high in the sky and burn out with a flash. These guys have a different kind of philosophy that perhaps we will never understand. Some people are not as lucky as Dwayne Johnson. Most of them don't get offer from Hollywood. So far I have seen John Cena in only one film. It's called The Marine. Some of those wrestlers are there just because they didn't find anything better to do. They knew that the job is going to wear them out, but they just didn't have any other choice. Frankly, I really don't know whom to blame.

I don't really know who to blame, since I don't even know them that well, or personally. What I do know is boxing is a really dangerous sport. Before, when there weren't many rules, people almost killed each other in the ring- that's what my mom told me, but I think it is true- it did damage some of the head of our boxers here. Good thing there are now proper rules for boxing, but still- this sport is dangerous, and some people force others to box just for more money.

I think any sports without rules would be dangerous. Even if the famous basketball, if it has no rule it would be catastrophic. In the case of boxing, since they're wedges is their body, it is really dangerous. That's why before someone go to the ring and box, they train hard so that to avoid any serious injuries.
