2 Eddie Guerrero Passes Away (2005)

Like Growing Up, Eddie Was My Role Model. And He Still Is, He Made Me Happy. And He Will Be Miss, From His Family. And His Fans.
Thank You Eddie! We Love You.

It seems just like yesterday when I found out one of my all-time favorite wrestlers, �Latino Heat� Eddie Guerrero passed away, due to heart failure. Nov. 13, 2005 was such a sad day for wrestling fans around the world. It was definitely a tragic moment that hit the wrestling world hard like a meteorite.

He should be number one. when I heard I almost committed suicide

I swear! Someone is cutting onions... every day

3 Chris Benoit's Death

It is so sad that chris, daniel and nancy have passed away, I miss you R.I. P

It was a huge shock to me even more was how he died, I still don't agree with what WWE did by erasing Chris Benoit from the History books R.I.P Benoit truly one of the Greatest Technical Wrestlers of all time.

It struck the heart in such a painful way, much like Eddie, but this was just... Hopelessness

This is not sad.

4 Shawn Michaels Retires (2010)

Shawn Michaels is a great wrestler and I love him

I Miss shawn but is not undertaker fault it's the WWE fault

I can't believe HBO retired. Seriously undertaker! Your streak shouldn't matter to you that much. What if that was your career! How would you feel? Huh!

5 Edge announces his retirement (2011)

It's just sad hearing to one of the greatest and most talented (maybe the greatest and the most talented) wrestlers of all time say he retires duo to injuries that you already know have forced him all these years to stay out of action. And although you see that he's trying to make it and win titles and accomplish things and suddenly you listen to him again that he have to stay out of action, this time for the rest of his life.

Sometimes, it is very easy for fans to forget the punishment the wrestlers put their bodies through. However, this is a stark reminder of just how dangerous professional wrestling is. I am very saddened for Edge that he will no longer be able to continue to wrestle and live his childhood dream. As a fan, I just want to thank him for providing me with many great memories and to wish him the best of luck in whatever he chooses to do next with his life. - Bringls

I was really sad to hear that edge is leaving WWE. There are not many WWE superstars as hardship as he. He doesn't care of his body. He is a hard-working superstar. But it is a matter of sorrow that he could not overcome the injury.

Man, this was more sad than watching Michael leaving The Office.

6 Brock Lesnar ends Undertaker's WrestleMania streak (2014)

I really wanted Undertaker to retire with the streak. But I want to see where WWE goes with this. Still sad.

This moment let my spirit for the WWE broken for never see wrestlemania again.

This was the most sad that I see in WWE moments, I only watch WWE for taker I now is over all the real emption is lost for many fans, they kill a legend, but for many steel the 21-0 the best in all the time.

U SUCK LESNAR! WWE SUCKS NOW, Undertaker s streak is over, ok, but I didn't like the way it was over. The Undertaker, who didn't give up to HBK at WM 25, 26, the same Undertaker... who put is life on the line at WM 27 against HHH and didn't give up even after suffering 3 pedigrees and a tombstone... the same Phenom, gave up so easily to lesnar... this shows the bad condition of WWE...
at least now, wwe... Bring back the ATTITUDE era and DUMP this PG CRAP.

Forget the controversial man for a sec (he was a jerk, no question but he died before we could find out if he had evolved), just the idea of seeing him in the HoF, then Raw the next night and then...dead. For someone who grew up loving the character, this was a real kick in the guts. - truckturner
