DEAD WRESTLER OF THE MONTH: I hate this feature, but Vince, it's your industry: former WWE superstar Chris Candido dead at 33.

According to USA Today, "Wrestlers have death rates about seven times higher than the general U.S. population, says Keith Pinckard, a medical examiner in Dallas who has followed wrestling fatalities. They are 12 times more likely to die from heart disease than other Americans 25 to 44, he adds. And USA TODAY research shows that wrestlers are about 20 times more likely to die before 45 than are pro football players, another profession that's exceptionally hard on the body."
