My reply:

Yeah, you have a point. Some of these super stars have really messed
up lives, and Hawk was really lucky just to die in his sleep while he
was getting his life straightened out. Others weren't so lucky.

For example, in the 1980's there was a female super star named Sherri
Martel. She worked her way steadily through the female devisions of
the AWA and NWA becoming three time women's heavy wait champion for
those companies before landing a job with the WWF. Once she stepped
into the ring with the WWF she won her fourth women's heavy wait
championship, and redubbed her ring name Sinsational Sherri. She'd
hold the WWF women's belt for 15 months before losing it to, then
female rooky, Rockin' Robin. Thing is Sherri Martel was pretty
sinsational in the ring. She had the body of a super model, was
extremely athletic, and that woman could really move when she wanted
to. Her arial moves such as the flying crossbody pin, flying splash,
flying drop kicks, etc were truly something to see. Unquestionably a
talented athlete in her own right. However, like so many super stars
her personal life wasn't so sensational that's for sure. I gather she
was something of a party girl into wild sex, drugs, the usual party
scene. Eventually, it must have caught up to her in the end because
around 2007 there was an announcement on the news and on WWE that
Sharri Martel had been found dead in her home from a major drug over
dose. I can't help but see that as a stupid waist.  Granted her
wrestling days were over, as the woman was in her fourties, but she
had worked in the 90's as various ring side managers under the names
Scary Sharri, Queen Sherri, Sister Sherri, and various other heel
rolls the WWF and WCW wanted her to play. She still had many more
years of life left in her, and in fact was going to be hired back to
the WWE to resume her roll as a ring side manager just before her
death. Dumb. Just dumb to kill herself like that accidently or
