Over one-quarter of the performers who took part in 1991's Wrestlemania VII have died, a wrestling website noted in the wake of the death of "Macho Man" Randy Savage.

The Wrestling Observer newsletter discovered that 14 of the 51 performers at the event have died in the past 20 years, with many of the deaths attributed to drug use (link is subscription only).

The list of wrestlers who have died since 1991 include some of the biggest stars in the sport like Savage, Andre the Giant, Miss Elizabeth and The British Bulldog. Causes of death include suicides, murder and heart attacks, some the result of years of anabolic steroid use. Savage died last week after suffering an apparent heart attack behind the wheel of his truck. His ex-wife, Miss Elizabeth, passed away after overdosing on a variety of drugs in 2003.

Looking at the list is a sobering reminder of the realities of a make-believe sport like professional wrestling. Not all of the men and women listed played a part in their own demise; referee Joey Marella was the victim of a car crash that occurred when he was driving home from a match.

As wrestlinginc.com points out, none of the 44 starters from the Super Bowl played in 1991 have passed away and only two of 44 boxers who held a championship belt that year are gone.
At 58, Savage made it nearly a decade longer than some of his deceased colleagues.

...🤬 sad.. didnt know Big Boss Man was dead

R.I.P.

    i read an article that compared wrestling to other sports and entertainers that live a risky lifestyle from that 1991 year.
    In light of Randy Savage’s passing on Friday due to an automobile accident in Seminole, Florida, F4WOnline.com posted a report comparing WWE wrestler death stats to similar sized samples in other fields of sports and entertainment.

    The report states that of the 51 talents who appeared at the 1991 WWE pay-per-view WrestleMania VII, 14 have died prematurely—”The Texas Tornado” Kerry Von Erich, Dino Bravo, Andre the Giant, Joey Marella, “The British Bulldog” Davey Boy Smith, Mr. Perfect, Miss Elizabeth, Hawk, Hercules, Big Boss Man, Earthquake, Sensational Sherri, Crush and Randy Savage. This list does not include Gorilla Monsoon (62, natural causes) and Lord Alfred Hayes (76).

    By comparison, of the 44 professional football players who started on both offense and defense at Superbowl XXV between the Buffalo Bills and the New York Giants, all remain alive.

    For professional boxing, of the 44 boxers to hold a major world championship in 1991 (WBC, WBA, IBF and WBO), two are dead.

    Of the 50 musicians to perform at the 1991 and 1992 Monsters of Rock festivals in England (an annual music festival which would attract the biggest names in hard rock and heavy metal music), all remain alive.

    Seems like wrestling is the most dangerous sport or entertainment genre to get involved with...

    » Chase Tatum - 2008 / 03 / 23 (34)
    » Chris Adams - 2001 / 10 / 07 (46)
    » Chris Benoit - 2007 / 06 / 24 (40)
    » Curt Hennig - 2003 / 02 / 10 (44)
    » Davey Boy Smith - 2002 / 05 / 17 (39)
    » Eddie Guerrero - 2005 / 11 / 13 (38)
    » Elizabeth - 2003 / 05 / 01 (42)
    » Emory Hale - 2006 / 01 / 28 (36)

    » Joey Maggs - 2006 / 10 / 15 (37)
    » Kanyon - 2010 / 04 / 02 (40)
    » Louie Spicolli - 1998 / 02 / 15 (27)
    » Mark Curtis (referee) - 1999 / 09 / 08 (37)

    » Renegade - 1999 / 02 / 23 (33)
    » Rocco Rock - 2002 / 09 / 21 (50)

    Additionally, six more talents who joined WCW after 1998 have since passed on - Chris Candido, "Dr. Death" Steve Williams, Mike Awesome, Rhonda Singh, Sherri Martel and The Wall. All six deaths listed occurred before the age of 50.

    On a final note, Kanyon's passing marks the fifteenth consecutive year in which at least one talent who performed for WCW between 1991 and 2001 has died.
