Unfortunate? Inevitable is more like it.
How many Ultimate Warriors have their been?
20 years ago this might have been sad, but he made lots of money doing something he (and everyone else) knew was risky. It always amazes me when wrestling fans are shocked when one of their superstars dies so young.

So, all NFL football players should be dead by now, correct? I mean, if it's inevitable like you say due to playing a risky sport.

No, inevitable due to the insane amounts of steroids and other drugs they take to keep their bodies in that shape.

And wrestling isn't very risky, it's fake. Which makes it even worse. They do all these drugs for entertainment, it isn't even a real sport. You should feel responsible Rickey, you contribute to their drug use by watching them. All of you wrestling fans killed Eddie Guerrero.
