Wrestling maybe scripted but for we cant deny they were athletic people and have a somewhat healthy active lifestyle. But a lot of wrestlers died on their 30's 40's and 50's. A lot of them seemed to have a short lifespan. some of them died in accidents related with the job Like Owen Hart who died in a ring entrance. Others commited suicide dueto depression, You know touring around America for like forever and being away from your family sounds depressing while others were said to die because of steroids. Aside from the steroid users, we have the monster type wrestlers who are usually fat or obese so despite of being athletic Though Wrestling is scripted, taking bumps actually hurt and yeah it did affect the brains of some of them. MMA fighters and boxers who do real fights seemed to have longer lifespans. We have people like Rick Flair and Mae young who are still alive though.

yes, this job has many risks and before aside from steroids these wrestlers actually had to "buff up" by taking high calorie and high protein foods just like Sumos. but athletes if you are careful and do it right are very healthy that's why we have people llike mae young and because of their training they can still do all these stunts.

Hello CAW!! WWE is like a circus troupe.Its more dangerous than,MMA and boxing.Nowadays wrestlers are more conscious about their body.

Though boxers and MMA fighters do real fights, they only have a match once in 6 months and have a long rest period and time to train. Though wrestling is scripted, they take bumps actually hurts their body. Touring 300 days a year, is depressing and some of them uses steroids.

Benoit, got brain damage because of being hit by a steel chair regularly. It damaged his brain. Thats why you dont see wrestlers getting hit by a steel chair on the head anymore. Pile driver and some certain moves that hits the head is not allowed anymore.... Unless you are Kane or Undertaker (they know how to do it without hurting your head)
