Professional Wrestling is a dangerous job, and it's not uncommon for wrestlers to pass away before their time. For some of them, end comes before they even leave Ring, sometimes literally. Wrestlers tend to accumulate injuries, and some moves require them to trust their lives in their opponent's hands. All this means great many things can go wrong during a match. Botch move, previously undiscovered medical condition, or even piece of faulty equipment can all turn a cool, scripted performance into a deadly serious situation. For instance, Cage Side Seats describes an incident from 2014 in which WWE wrestler Seth Rollins almost impaled himself on a nasty metal spike during a match. Rollins escaped his potentially lethal incident with scare and unpunctured torso, but sadly, many of his colleagues have been less fortunate. Here are stories of wrestlers who leave everything they had in the ring, including their lives. Sometimes, one wrong move is all it takes to turn a normal sparring match into tragedy. Brian Ong and Dalip Great Khali Singh found this out the hard way in 2001, when Singh accidentally killed Ong in a dramatic training Ring mishap. However, RVCJ write that incident wasn't case where massive Singh was clumsily manhandling his fellow wrestler. Instead, it was Ong who botched the move: flapjack is executed by lifting the opponent up and pushing them in the air, so they land on their face and chest when they hit Mat. Instead of going along with this, Ong held on to Singh's shirt and came down hard, severely hurting his head and spine. As such, Singh never faced any repercussions for dramatic accident. Apw, on the other hand, finds itself in seriously hot legal waters. According to Ringside Report, fact that APW allowed Ong to keep working despite his many injuries ended up costing him promotion around 1. 5 Million in settlement money. On March 21 2015, Mexican wrestling legend called Hijo del Perro Aguayo die. Syracuse. Com describe strange way popular luchador, whose real name was Pedro Aguayo Ramirez, met his fate in a match where he faced another Lucha Libre Superstar, Rey Mysterio Jr. Tag team Brawl pitted Aguayo and his partner Manik against Mysterio and Extreme Tiger.

The match went on for two minutes before other wrestlers and the referee realized the man dangling on ropes was actually seriously hurt and stopped the match. However, nothing could be done to save Aguayo: His vertebrae had snapped when his head hit ropes. The Los Angeles Times reports that his ultimate cause of death was heart attack, brought on by cervical stroke from his broken neck. Unsurprisingly, incident deeply shocked apologetic Mysterio, who had unwittingly caused his friend and colleague's untimely demise.

Wrestling promotions are serious when they say, don't try this at home. Although most wrestlers leave shows without serious injuries, it isn't uncommon for them to occur. In the rarest of cases, wrestlers have sacrificed everything they had in the ring, including their lives. Wrestlers go through rigorous training to not just entertain, but to do so in a safe way. Regardless, wrestlers are human and accidents happen. Major wrestling companies - most notably WWE - have also been performing more intense physicals in order to prevent wrestlers from dying in the ring due to undiagnosed health condition. For some, such as Brian Pillman, this happens outside of the ring. Yet for others on this list, they collapse in ring without being aware that something was abnormal with their body. While wrestling deaths are extremely rare, there have also been a number of scary close calls. One slight degree of improper movement could have cost wrestlers subject to these close calls their lives. Yet despite this risk of injury, wrestlers continue to enter arenas four to five times a week - and sometimes even more - to entertain fans across the world. In face of danger, that takes an overwhelming amount of courage. Thanks to modern prevention programs and advances in science, most of these incidents aren't too recent. However, you will still recognize some of the wrestlers that appear on this list. Now, without further ado, here are eight wrestlers who die doing what they love, and eight close calls.

2 Perro Aguayo, Jr.

Perro Aguayo Jr., Legendary pro wrestler in Mexico who died Friday while competing in a match, died from a heart attack that was brought on by cervical stroke suffered due to a broken neck, according to Ernest Franco, official doctor for Tijuana Wrestling Commission said Tuesday. Juan Carlos Pelayo, President of Tijuana Wrestling Commission, said that there was no negligence in the death of Aguayo. The promotion that Aguayo was wrestling for, Crash, had two ambulances, five paramedics and a doctor at the arena. There was much criticism of the apparent slowness of help arriving for Aguayo, who remained unconscious in the ring as the match continued around him. Former wrestler Konnan, who was ringside, shook Aguayo a couple of times in an apparent attempt to revive him before medical personnel arrive. According to TWC, it takes 80 seconds for a doctor to arrive. There are many videos of incidents on YouTube. Aguayo, who was buried Monday in Guadalajara, was a gigantic star in Mexico, top rudo, or villain in the country, according to pro wrestling reporter and creator of Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer. When asked to name the equivalent WWE wrestler, Meltzer say, I say very much level of HHH from several years back or Seth Rollins, if Rollins remains in his position for 10 - 15 more years. Randy Orton may be the best comparison, but I say bigger than Orton, maybe even like Randy Savage. As far as controversy regarding how the situation was handled after Aguayo was injure, and if it will lead to changes in how in - ring injuries are treat, Meltzer say, I dont see much changing in the US. In Mexico, I am not sure what will change past. Maybe people know to instinctively stop the match and carefully bring him back. It was actually good doctor was there and ambulance was there and they were only a few blocks from the hospital. In that sense, they were lucky. But the doctor got there late because he was treating someone. Because this was so big, in Mexico, I think it will change the instincts of people from knowledge of what happen, but as far as. Regulatory changes, perhaps there will be more commissions demanding more medical care at shows for a while. In the US, because wrestling is largely unregulated, I dont see anything coming from this. Wwe has trained medical personnel at every show, but smaller groups that draw 100 people do have a budget for hospitals and ambulances.

1 Owen Hart

A short time after Owen Hart quit WWE, Blue Blazer character made his return after nearly a decade. It was a comedic storyline in which Hart was made out to be somewhat of a buffoon. At Over Edge pay - per - view in Kansas City on May 23 1999, Owen was booked in Intercontinental Championship match with Godfather. An Elaborate entrance was planned as Owen was set to be lower from the rafters via harness. The plan was for him to be lower just a few feet above the ring, at which point he would release himself, falling to a square circle to get a few chuckles. But the stunt did not go as planned and Owen Hart fell some 80 feet, crashing into the ring below. He died a short time later due to internal bleeding from blunt force trauma. He was just 34 years old. The stunt was not shown on broadcast but WWE Hall of Fame announcer Jim Ross explained to viewers what had happened and later announced his death. In a highly controversial move, Vince McMahon decided to continue the show, move that still did not sit well with the Hart family, especially the Owens widow, Martha, who later sued WWE and was awarded 18 million in an out - of - court settlement. She again sued the company in early 2010 over matter of likeness rights, again resulting in a settlement. Year following his tragic and unnecessary death, Martha announced the opening of the Owen Hart Foundation, charity designed to award scholarships to children in need that also provides housing for low - income families, ensuring that the legacy of her husband will live on. She still refuses to allow Owen Hart to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
