10 Wrestlers You Grew Up Watching, Who Are No More

WWF (not WWE) has been a part of most guys’ lives, while growing up. The larger than life wrestlers, the over-the-top characters, and violent action, made it a staple of our lives, much to the chagrin of our parents, who would think it is a bad influence on us. And who can forget the trump cards?

But while some of them went to have great careers like The Undertaker and The Rock, some of them faded into obscurity soon thereafter. You will be surprised to know a few of them have since then passed away, at relatively young ages.

Here is a list of 10 such wrestlers, whom we grew up watching, but have since left us.

1. Test- Test was a big name during the attitude era, so much so that he was about to be married to Stephanie McMahon, albeit in storyline. But soon Test was let go from WWE, and he died from drug overdose at the age of 33.
