Pro wrestlers often lead tragic lives. That’s just sort of ingrained in the life of a professional wrestler. The athletes live hard, indulge often times in various substances, and simply don’t have a particularly long life expectancy. But today on Wrestling With Tragedy we talk about Ian Hodgkinson, better known as his wrestling alter ego Vampiro. We look underneath the surface and discover the anguish Vampiro goes through each time he gets in the ring, and each time he reluctantly draws away from it. Broken bones, arthritis, cancer, head injuries, and this is a story and a man that everyone needs to know about.
