I'm surprised Tugboat is still alive. He was a BIG guy as well.



Also, don't forget The Junkyard Dog is dead......



As well as Big John Studd.....




I sure hope Koko B. Ware doesn't share a similar fate. He was my favorite from that era.

Tugboat is/wa Dusty Rhodes' son in law. He really was not involved that long in the business compared to others.

Did Tugboat become "The Shockmaster" for WCW - and have the infamous botched entrance at a PPV where he fell down trying to go thru a "wall"/something and his helmet fell off??

The list of dead wrestlers is terrible.

-Bam bam bigelow
-Yokozuna (although, look at his size)
-Rick rude
-Perfect

Can't believe some of the wcw guys are gone, like benoit and eddie guerrero. If you had told people in 1994 or 95, "yeah, these guys will be gone in 10 or 12 years", I dont think many would have believed you. Its done terrible things to the sport. Esp kids. If you're 10 or 11, how do you realize these guys are gone.

For me, wrestling ended in about 1997, haven't kept up with it much since. The bumps guys like flair and piper have taken are incredible after 20 or 30 years.

Yes, and that's probably why his career was so short.
