It's never straight up and down!

Hi folks, each year seems to bring us more wrestlers dying before their prime, and more than a few past their prime. Here's who we lost this year:

- Moondog Spike
- Reid Flair
- Hector Garza
- Mark Starr
- Al Green
- Jackie Fargo
- Dutch Savage
- Angelo Savoldi
- Gene Petit
- El Brazo
- Maurice "Mad Dog" Vachon
- Vivian St. John
- Matt Borne
- Paul Bearer
- Dolph Ziggler's career
- Anderson Silva's leg

Did I miss anyone? What were your favourite memories from these fighters and entertainers?

Paying tribute to Al Green, here's Sid Vicious destroying Al Green:

subs so fast you'll freak


This is, and it feels weird to say this, a pretty good year for wrestler deaths. Only a couple really shocking ones in here. Heck, Savoldi lived pretty comfortably with his family and died in his sleep at the age of 99 as the oldest living wrestler.

It's a mystery.
Broken into a jigsaw puzzle.
Wrapped in a conundrum.
Hidden in a Chinese box.

A riddle.


There's still a few hours, don't give up on Mae Young yet.

Aw, son of a bitch!

The saddest, and somewhat morbidly humorous, headline of 2013 was "Doink the Clown dies".

You can also add Doug Gilbert, Payasco Coco Blanco, Gary Robbins, Dennis Hall, Calvin Knapp who died in the last few months. There is also Kevin Macie the man who claimed to be Rick Steiner.

He was just some dude who told people in his area he was Rick Steiner, to the point his obituary noted that he claimed to be a former WWE wrestler.

If his cause of death was murder via living doll, it was his own fault.

Doug Gilbert's not dead, unless he's tweeting from beyond the grave: https://twitter.com/dangerousdg1

EDIT: Mick "NOT THE EARS" McManus died this year. So did Princess Paula, who used to accompany Fit Finlay back in the 80's.

Another one not mentioned yet was Don "The Lawman" Slatton, who I had admittedly never even heard of until I read Dave's amazing obit for him this summer primarily involving a run in with Harley Race in the '70s.

Link for those with a subscription.
