He was a beast in his heyday. He spent a few years in the WWE(which was WFF the) before he moved to WCW in the year 1998.

2- MIKE AWESOME-(AGE-42)
Mike Lee “Mike” Alfonso was an American Professional wrestler.He was best known for his appearances with the American Professional wrestling promotions Extreme Championship wrestling.
Fans who have been following WWE well, will not have to forget the name TEST. Though he wasn’t a big name in the business of wrestling but he still made his presence felt in WWE. He was a product of the TNA Entertainment.
Test didn’t have much time to spend in retirement as he died due to an overdose of oxycodone just 3 days before his 34th birthday. It was later confirmed that he was suffering from a Chronic brain injury which could be caused by repeated blows to the head while wrestling.
After starting off his career as part of various tag teams in the WWE, Eddie Fatu finally found his rhythm in the business with the character “Umuga”. His new character brought him an elevation as a superstar.
There were also subsequent revelations that Umaga clearly violated many of the WWE talent wellness policies and was using many drugs which eventually contributed to his death.
5-RANDY SAVAGE (AGE 58)
Randy Savage is arguably one of the very few superstars who found their way into the mainstream. He even went on to land a role in the first spider-man film, making it clear that he was jack of all trade which made him more popular.
Savage died from a heart attack at the age of 58.His death is easily among the most impact ones in wrestling history.
6-BRUISER BRODY(AGE 42)
Brody had a remarkable career that spanned almost two decades, and which saw him establish himself as the greatest brawler that united states had ever seen till then. He was a good family man.
He often had a terrible relationship with his promoters because of his business-minded approach which eventually led to his death as Jose Gonzalez, a promoter in Puerto Rico, stabbed Brody to death in a locker-room after an argument between them.
7-EDDIE GUERRERO-(AGE 38)
Before he got to WWE, Eddie was known to be among the wrestlers who brought technical skills into ECW. Known for his incredible charisma and special in-ring skills, Guerrero had no trouble adapting into any kind of scenario.
Unfortunately, Eddie passed away at the young age of 38 years due to acute heart failure which was later blamed on the hard drugs problem he had taken at some point.
He was one of the most gifted wrestler from the Hart family. Hart fell to his death from a height of 78ft while making his entrance in the Over The Edge pay-per-view of 1999. The show still went on despite his death but the company later gave a two-hour tribute to the late great.
Hart was remembered as a great person rather than just a wrestler.
9-CHRIS BENOIT-(AGE 40)
I guess many people know this dude. Benoit was one of the those wrestlers that many grew up watching and who had a great impact in many. Though it was concluded that he murdered his family and committed suicide, but this is yet to be proven with credible evidence.
Keeping that tragic part aside, the life of Benoit as a wrestler is one that could be an inspiration for everyone out there.
