It should be mentioned that there have been pro-wrestling personalities like Toots MondtJohn Tatum and Joel Deaton getting caught up in instances of vehicular manslaughter.  There have also been cases of pro-wrestlers who killed people when they worked as bounty hunters, something David Schultz, Bam Bam Bigelow and New Jack may have done.  There are circumstances of self-defense like Scott Hall and Jack Reynolds.  There are also people like Ella Waldek, Kensuke Sasaki and the Great Khali who were involved in terrible accidents in the ring which led to someone's death. 

There is also the controversial murder of Bruiser Brody, which has widely been attributed to Invader #1 (Jose Gonzales).  The trial that followed saw him acquitted, but many believe it to be premeditated, cold-blooded murder.

The following are individuals who are widely believed to have murdered their significant others.
