    Mama dont let your baby become a rassler

    It's astonishing how many pro rasslers die at an early age.
    David Von Erich 25
    Owen Hart 34
    Adrian Adonis 34
    Eddie Guerrero 38
    Chris Benoit 40
    Miss Elizabeth (ringside personality) 42
    Big Boss Man 42
    Mr Perfect, Curt Hennig 44
    Junk Yard Dog 45
    Andre the Giant 46
    Ultimate Warrior 54
    Eddie Graham 55
    Macho Man Randy Savage 58

    Just to name a few. There are hundreds of others. Most died from heart attacks or substance abuse. Some from accidents and a few from suicides with a couple of murders thrown in.
    Pro rassling is a tough career and many cant handle the stress of the travel, the physical abuse of the matches, not to mention the injuries. But many could not handle the limelight after becoming superstars thus the substance abuse. Not a real healthy way to make a living.

    A few notable rasslers made it into their 80s like Freddie Blassie, Lou Thesz, Killer Kowalski, Mad Dog Vachon and Fabulous Moolah but these are rare exceptions.

    Is rassling staged? Of course it is, but the physical pounding they take is very real. Yea I'm kinda glad I lost my first pro match and retired at 20. Oh and btw, I lost to a girl. She beat the dog poo outta me!

    You were a rassler, Rokit??

    Yeah, good that you retired. Looks like a hard life.

    I got hooked on pro wrestling when The Rock came into the game. I was in love. My family and friends would buy me books, posters, keychains. I watched WWF every week. The ones who know me well wanted to know if the real me was in a pod somewhere. It was short-lived. But my love for The Rock endures... sigh

      Yea, I rassled...................for about 3 minutes. That's all the time it took for that woman to turn me into a pretzel.
      I lost interest in rassling about the same time The Rock became popular. My favorite era was back in the late 60s when Freddie Blassie, Bobo Brazil, Mil Mascaras, and George Steele were popular.
      Later I liked, Hulk Hogan, Brett Hart, Macho Man, and Mankind.

          I will say this and risk the smartasses taking it to the gutter....


          At the dojo, I used to love grappling the women. No, not to rub up on them, and no, not so I could win.....

          But they are more crafty. Men are used to being strong. It is engrained in our nature to use power. Women are used to having to use better leverage and skill. If you have the self discipline to NOT use strength to force your way out of a bad position, ju-jitsu verses women can be educational in ways that against men is less commen.


          Besides, they usually smell better.

            I will add this for the feminists...... No, men are not ALWAYS stronger. I was only speaking from my experiences with the folks at my dojo......

              I found that out pretty quick. A girl all of 5'4" 130 lbs picked me up and body slammed me.

                Pro wrestling is grueling. I had a buddy that did some low level shows, and that was tough enough, but imagine traveling all the time, having to stay in shape, and your body never being able to recuperate properly.

                  Listen to me. Listen closely.

                  You have to be very careful mentioning Macho Man in a place where duke can easily see or hear it.

                      Well that too, but he does the voice...it just keeps going until you want to punch his face.
