Anyone Can Die / Professional Wrestling

Go To

  • Whilst reality-based rather than in a storyline, sadly Professional Wrestlers seem to have very short life spans. Prior to drug testing (which was implemented after one such death), wrestling has had a number of high-profile deaths that seem to come out of nowhere, most notably Chris Benoit and Eddie Guerrero. Certainly fans are now conditioned to expect any wrestler to die at any time.
  • You also never know when an accident may happen, such as the one that claimed the life of Owen Hart.

  • And of course accidents can occur outside the ring, as what had happened to Randy Savage.
  • Due to Lucha Underground being more of a TV show about Wrestling then a Wrestling TV show, They aren't afraid to kill off characters. While some characters come Back from the Dead, others are Killed Off for Real.
