Not to be crass, but skimming down the lineup, there are a few guys that are in bad shape now (Heenan and Superfly, perhaps Jake). Crazy sad.

It was also 25 years ago now and some of those guys weren't even that young then. At s certain point it becomes less surprising when everyone dies. Everyone who played in the 1905 World Series is dead now, but I don't consider the event cursed. 

I totally understand what you're saying.  As a point of reference, however, SuperBowl 24 (same year, 1990), had 44 players in the starting lineups, and only one of them has passed away.

Wrestling is real, football is fake.;)

Actually, there may have been more steroids being shot into asses in the NFL than in wrestling at the time.  The thing that destroyed wrestlers was the travel.
