What The Graves Of Some Of Our Favorite Professional Wrestlers Actually Look Like

List Rules
Vote up all the most suitable send-offs for our favorite professional wrestlers.

Professional wrestling is filled with larger-than-life characters performing athletic feats, death-defying stunts, and over-the-top melodrama, all for our amusement – and to get us to buy a ticket for the next show. We know these people are performers, but unlike actors and the characters they portray on screen, we identify wrestlers as their characters. These huge personalities become friends to us, whether we are watching as children with a smiling parent or gathering with excited friends as a teenager around the TV. We identify and form a bond with them, which makes it all the more painful when our favorite professional wrestlers pass away.

Unfortunately, this business has seen its share of sad stories and tragedies, sometimes making it difficult to be a longtime fan. But we pay our respects to our favorites and hope for a better future. These are the actual graves of some of our favorite professional wrestlers.
