kennedy-steroidsThe confusion on steroid use in professional wrestling never ceases. Apparently, Vince McMahon, the chairman of World Wrestling Entertainment, released a statement saying that he personally asked all the wrestlers suspended from the Signature Pharmacy scandal back in August 2007 if they had bought anabolic steroids from the online pharmacy. According to McMahon, all the wrestlers admitted to buying although some didn’t even use the drugs. One of the wrestlers that underwent that thirty-day suspension was Kenneth C. Anderson also known as “Mr. Kennedy” in the ring.

Two months ago, Mr. Kennedy did an interview with Live Audio Wrestling and his statement basically contradicted what McMahon had initially said during his interview in front of the  U. S. Congress. According to Mr. Kennedy, he never bought from Signature Pharmacy and it was his doctor who purchased the drugs for him. He said that he chose to keep quiet about it since the media would most probably just misinterpret what he would say. When asked if he took steroids, Mr. Kennedy said that he didn’t during that time. The thing is there are still some evidences and inconsistencies with Mr. Kennedy’s statement, especially when you look closely at his other interviews.

In his most recent interview, Mr. Kennedy admits to being aware of the pressure newer wrestlers face to the extent that they have to take steroids. He even added that taking steroids is not really necessary and that they should try not to use these drugs.
