I’ve been a wrestling fan all my life!  My cousin Junie and I would watch it for hours on cable and imitate the moves and recreate the scenes inside the ring after the show complete with costumes, props and an imaginary ring ropes to use for that body slam action.

The wrestling legends of my childhood were Hulk Hogan, Ultimate Warrior, Jake the Snake Roberts, Mr Perfect, Shawn Michaels, Macho Man Randy Savage, Rowdy Roddy Piper, British Bulldog and of course The Undertaker.

They get old and some of them die young but their legends lives on.

Here’s a list of deceased wrestling superstars and legends:
