Professional wrestling is a physically demanding sport with wrestlers performing almost everyday of the week. Add that with abuse of drugs and alcohol then you really won't see a good old self of yours. Some because diseases were able to take toll in their bodies.
So let's take a look at the 10 wrestlers that didn't really age well.
Jake "The Snake" Roberts & Scott Hall
As Jake ages he battled a lot of personal demons, mainly alcohol. He would usually go to wrestling events drunk. As for Scott Hall he mainly got depended on drugs and also went onto some wrestling shows under influence, he also once accidentally killed a man.
These two seemed like they would die as somber old men wouldn't they? But nope. Luckily Diamond Dallas Page came in to save their lives and turned them into WWE Hall of Famers.
If it wasn't for DDP, who knows what would've happened to these two. I'm very glad that they were able to beat their own personal demons and are now living normal lives as family men.
He is probably best remembered as one of the original members of The Four Horsemen and as 1/2 of The Brain Busters in WWF with Arn Anderson where they manage to capture the Tag-Team belts.
After 30 years of in-ring career Tully didn't really look good for his age. He's only supposed to be in his 60's but he looks like he is around 70 years old already.
He still wrestles occasionally but he mainly works as a minister now if I'm not mistaken. He was also inducted in the WWE HOF in 2012 as a member of The Four Horsemen.
After suffering multiple injuries, including an in-ring injury that ended his career, he was forced to retire.
The photo on the right was a mugshot taken on July 2007 after he was caught driving under influence. He also became somber in 2009. But I recently stumbled in his Facebook page and he seems to be doing much better now.
The Ugandan Giant wrestled since the late 70's until 2009. Due to diabetes, both of Kamala's legs were amputated. Because of that he is now unfortunately stuck in a wheelchair for the rest of his life.
But despite all of that Kamala never gave up with life. He is truly an inspiration.
If you wanna know more make sure to check out this video about Kamala from Bleacher Report:
The Rise and Fall of the Ugandan Giant
Sandman has admittedly been using drugs and of course he loves his alcohol as well. And after many hardcore moments over his 3 decade career, it really took a toll in his body.
He has also been arrested quite a few times. I'm not really sure how he's doing these days but hopefully much better.
Balls started swingin' chairs since 1987. He was really a big dude back then but recently he's just a shell of his former self, Balls looks like a homeless dude now more than anything. As they say he is the oldest 43 year old ever!
This is thanks to years of drug & alcohol abuse.
He is in dire need of some DDP Yoga!
Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka
2015 wasn't the greatest year for Snuka as well. He got diagnosed with stomach cancer and is currently under investigation again for the murder of his ex-girlfriend 30 years ago.
Because of this he was removed in the WWE Hall of Fame and isn't getting mentioned in any WWE Programming anymore.
But when Luger retired in wrestling on 1995 he began to have problems with drugs and his injuries are taking toll in his body as well, things became worst when his spinal cord broke in 2007 and is now sadly stuck in a wheelchair.
For a man supposed to be in his 50's, Luger looks like a frail 70 year old man. At least he reformed himself now and seems to be totally nice with fans on conventions and signings.
Dynamite Kid is one of the greatest wrestlers of all time, to some people they even consider him the greatest! But he may be a great wrestler but not really the greatest person out there.
Many wrestlers have claimed that Dynamite was an asshole backstage. He also abused his ex-wife at one point even pointing a gun at her! After suffering multiple career injuries, he became paralyzed.
Bobby "The Brain" Heenan
In 2002 Heenan was diagnosed with throat cancer. Then in 2007 he had a jaw surgery and because of this he wasn't able to speak clearly. From 2009 and onwards he was hospitalized multiple times and suffered various injuries such as in the hips and shoulders because of accidents.
But even though his looks have changed drastically, Heenan's personality never changed! He is still the witty weasel that we all know and love. He also isn't shy of his appearance and still goes to various signings and conventions.
Check out this video about Bobby Heenan these days. Heenan is one tough man, as he said if Gorilla Monsoon can't shut him up then cancer won't either! A true inspiration.
