In his weekly column on SI.com this week, Frank Deford delves into the high number of deaths of professional wrestlers. "If there is a profession in America with a higher mortality rate, I'd like to know," he says. How many people know "that in the seven weeks since the Benoit family massacre, three more wrestlers have died -- two aged 44, one 38."
Deford is of the opinion that the horrors of professional wrestling need to be addressed by someone and that "those who tend to think performance-enhancing drugs in sports like baseball and football really aren't a big deal ought to be forewarned. It can happen here."
