    Maybe if you're just counting 80s-90s WWF midcard wrestlers, where steroid/drug use was routine, but overall I doubt that wrestlers' lifespans are that much shorter than most people. Oldschool guys like Freddie Blassie have made it well into their 80s. They make a big deal about the guys who die young, but they're still a fairly small percentage of wrestlers.
