roid rage is true and proven. 2 people were killed by their father/husband.

1 + 1 = 2

of course not everybody on roids kills their family or all WWE stars would be dead or locked up, so i wont blame steroids i will blame the dude who strapped a garbage bag on his sons head and the same guy who tied a cord around his wifes neck.

roids definitely didnt act like a calming substance though. its not like they are qualudes or valium....

Tony, I know roid rage exists.

In this case, it's to early to pin this as the the sole reason. Major depression is usually the cause of these tragedies.

it was said that back in 05 i believe that she filed for divorce and got a restraining order taken out on him. so she had to know that he was capable of doing something bad. why she backed off the restraining order is another question or why she didnt go thru with the divorce.

you know his first wife has to be thinking, thank god it wasnt me and my kids.

vince says he has a no drug policy in the WWE. now whether that is true or not is a whole another topic.

How ironic that this comes on the heels of the WWE staging Vince McMahon's death. I doubt they'll be doing any more of those.

Anyway, the majority of professional wrestlers are bound to end up crazy (or dead) after so long due to all the steroids, pain killers, stress, beatings, etc...I'm surprised it's never been really addressed before.

Yeah but that's because 1000x more people suffer from depression than take roids. Looking at the guy physically & his profession.... this raises more roid questions than if he was a computer programmer. Again, not saying that's what happened. Still a tradgedy. Bless his family.

WWE has a wellness policy in place and they claim they do drug testing. But for what is the question?

And Vince has had no interest in doing serious drug testing as it's expensive and hence would come from his bottom line.

^^^ Nice avatar.

Roid rage doesn't last for three days straight either. Not saying it didn't play a part in it. But this could also go along the lines of some post concussion symptoms not unlike ex-football players are experiencing, head injuries. Even tho its fake they're bodies do take a beating.

the nfl is dragging its feet on addressing such problems. sad to thing the WWE may eventually prove to be ahead of the curve....

after all the nfl has been around for much longer than scripted entertainment wrasslin.
