Chris Candido was an American wrestler born on March 21, 1972. Along with his girlfriend Tammy Lynn and Tom Prichard, he formed a tag team 'The Bodydonnas.' Candido was a crafty, and an all-rounder performer. For his achievements inside the ring, they inducted him into the 'Hardcore Hall of Fame.'

Early in his life, he became a drug addict but became clean once he became a professional wrestler. While fighting a match in TNA Impact Wrestling against Sonny Siaki and Apolo, Candido fractured his fibula and tibia. He underwent surgery but after three days, died due to a blood clot that developed during surgery. He was only 33.

Adrian Adonis joined WWF in 1980 as a no-nonsense and rough wrestler. But WWF made him wear scarves, dresses, eye shadow, and pink dress to portray womanish "Adorable" Adrian Adonis. The fans hated him due to his actions and looks, but he played his part with absolute honesty.

Adonis was with fellow wrestlers in a minivan when the driver lost control of the vehicle while trying to avoid hitting a moose. The van fell into a creek. He died at 34.
