Wow, that's a pretty long list. What's crazy is the number of wrestlers under 40.

I believe Big John died due to Hodgkins disease

Yep, sadly there will probably be another 3-6 to add to the list by year's end. These guys are literally killing themselves for wrestling.

Everyone on this list died way too young, but how many can be considered wrestling related.

The 3 Von Erich's died from an extremely rare genetic disease that has been in their family for years.

Who was Marianna Komlos, Joey Marella and Ed Gatner? I don't remember those people.

David Von Erich did succumb to Acute Enteritis, Mike,Chris,and Kerry Von Erich all committed suicide

Komlos served as valet for Headbanger Chaz/Beaver Cleavage in WWE in the late 90's

Gantner was a Florida Wrestling Mainstay in the 80's

Marella was a WWF referee and the son of Gorilla Monsoon

That's right. It was weird too. I wonder if they had the disease and committed suicide before the disease took them as well.

I guess it's a possibility. I never remember hearing that but I had never thought of it before.
