John Cena has paid tributes to young WWE Superstars who passed away…
Today while there so many dead happening in the wrestling fraternity, we have decided to throw our stone back to the passing away of former WWE Champions who passed away a pretty while ago.
Needless to say that the death stars, especially to young wrestlers today is alarming and John Cena has said as much.
Cena was speaking recently in an interview and he revealed while quite a number of Superstars passes away at a very young age.
On the goal, Cena attributed the death of young wrestlers to the hectic schedules the wrestlers experienced daily. He said:
“There are a lot of guys that did all those dates on the road and they’re fine. And there are a lot of guys who lived like there was no tomorrow and guess what: when you do that there’s no The Von Erich family is the biggest tragedy in professional wrestling.
At one time, David Von Erich was seen as a future world champion and one of the best wrestlers in the industry. He died in Japan of a drug overdose, although World Class covered it up and claimed it was from medical complications tomorrow. Like, that stuff catches up with you plain and simple.”
Former WWE World champion Eddie Guerrero battled drug addiction for years and finally cleaned up only to die of heart failure at the age of 38. Chyna died at the age of 45. Miss Elizabeth was 43. “Mr. Perfect” Curt Hennig was 45. Mike Awesome was 42. Test was 34. Ravishing Rick Rude was 41. Davey Boy Smith was 40. Brian Pillman was 35.
The list can go on, but for everyone who died early in the WWE, there are those who lived to old age. That is the point that John Cena is making as there are many who lived life differently and they are still with us today.
In the podcast, John Cena was asked about the way the WWE takes care of their wrestlers now. Cena said he admires that the WWE offers financial assistance and health care for injuries and that the company pays wrestlers now when they are injured. John Cena said that the WWE also offers secondary education to help wrestlers move on when they leave the industry
Do we take it for granted odd the way Superstars passed away in the wrestling fraternity lately? No! That would be unbecoming. It seriously calls for concern and possibly for a way out.
So today we take a short at the murder-suicide perpetrated by top WWE Champion who killed himself after killing members of his family.
According to media, the report was released this week because it marks another post-humus anniversary of the deadly act of Chris Benoit who killed his wife and his son before proceeding to killing himself.
Yes, Chris Benoit passed away in 2007 and that death shocked the whole wide world especially because he was seen as such a cautious and deliberate man, and over the years he has sank his name into the hearts of millions of fans globally.
Earlier this week, the report of an interview which was done since January was released and this was shocking statement gathered during the interview. As at January, in Chris Jericho’s Podcast, Sanda Toffoloni was interviewed concerning the death of her sister and nephew Nancy and Daniel Benoit.
Sandra reveled that, Chris Benoit had to beat up his wife before finally putting her to death. More so, Chris Benoit went wacko and also stating that he was affected by the death of Eddie Guerrero, Johnny Grunge and Ray Taylor.
This is a soft account of how the death was recorded; he killed his beautiful pro-wrestler wife first, then killed his 7 year old son, and finally proceeded to kill himself. What a shock!
While that still rocks the WWE Universe, one cannot but wonder why he did what he did after having lived a life of a marquee athlete and still drawing large crowds, the mystery is why he would end it all in such a heinous fashion.
