    I'm 26 now, so at the time, being a 13 year old kid, and a HUGE fan of his, Eddie Guerreros death, and tribute show on RAW, genuinely made me cry. Benoit hurt for a day, before we all found out what really happened. Warriors death was really upsetting just because we had just seen him on RAW the day before.

    Try not to get emotional watching this:

    Dusty was a tough one. Especially the way he died

    For me it was the ones that were out of nowhere and were still wrestling. Owen, Eddie, and Benoit come to mind first. They were just so sudden and I had seen them perform in some cases days before they died. Roddy was the retired one that got me, loved that guy.

    The ones that come out of nowhere definitely hit hard. When the older legends like Piper and Dusty goes, it still stings because you can’t imagine them being gone. When you consider what guys were doing in the 80’s and managed to survive, you think they’ll live forever. I always commend the WWE on the video packages they put together, wether it be to hype a match or memorialize a legend because they always pick great music to go with everything. The Dusty video still gets me.

    Owen. Then Piper.

    The Ultimate Warrior's death for a different reason.

    I was a big fan when Triple turned heel and became The Game. Triple H & Chyna is what is was so Chyna dying hit me hard even though she turned into a total burn out and did hardcore porn.

    Probably Owen since it was due to a stunt gone wrong and not alcohol/drugs/steroids/stealing another man's wife/etc (although Austin could've caused it to get revenge for Owen breaking his neck).
    Pillman's death sucked because he would've been incredible during the Attitude Era.
