This is a list I hope I do not have to update any time soon. I thought about lowering the age cutoff just to cut down the number of answers, but I think this is much more emotionally powerful if you see the sheer number of wrestlers that have died prematurely. Even putting the cutoff at 50 excludes people like the Ultimate Warrior and Macho Man Randy Savage who died before truly reaching old age, but I had to draw the line somewhere.
