Wrestlers dying young.
February 9, 2011 4:47am CST
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?

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.
