Benoit passed drug test in April, says WWEThe head of World Wrestling Entertainment Inc. has said that professional wrestling star Chris Benoit, who killed his wife and son before taking his own life earlier this week, passed a random drug test in April.

“The last test that Chris Benoit took of a random nature was in April which he was totally negative,” WWE Chairman Vince McMahon said on NBC’s “Today” morning program. “That doesn’t mean that he wasn’t taking prescription medication and perhaps even steroids when this happened. We don’t know.”

Investigators found anabolic steroids among prescription drugs in Benoit’s suburban Atlanta house where the three bodies were found.

WWE is all about steroids, says CornetteJim Cornette, veteran commentator, promoter and booker for TNA, aired his sentiments over the condition of wrestling by saying that wrestlers are forced into drugs. This remark has come as a serious blow to reports in the past that Vince McMahon did not support the use of steroids.

Cornette also remarked that Vince McMahon is promoting larger-than-life stars in WWE and the wrestlers are supporting his ideology by using steroids to keep a high-profile job in the wrestling business.

Cornette further remarked that there seems to be no coming back for the good for wrestlers particularly when they have shorter life-spans in the business and in life.

  EXPERT’S ADVICE: MCMAHON SHOULD PREPARE TO FACE MEDIA

EXPERT’S ADVICE: MCMAHON SHOULD PREPARE TO FACE MEDIAAutopsy results for Andrew “the Test” Martin’s death will be released two weeks from now and Vince McMahon receives advice on how to handle the possible media onslaught. Martin’s demise is the latest in the series of steroids-related deaths in the WWE. Wrestler Chris Benoit murdered his wife and son then he took his own life. Eddie Guerrero, died of a heart attack which was also attributed to his long term use of steroids. With Martin’s death happening at the height of steroid scandal in the world of professional sports, McMahon can only do so much to keep the media mayhem at bay which could probably be worse than what he had gone through with Benoit.

McMahon and WWE should start planning on some damage control especially since Martin’s death would definitely put them on the center ring. Media vs. McMahon and WWE. And this time the WWE can’t rely on their muscles to knockout the opponent. When it comes to the steroid issue, the media can be pretty vicious.

  ANOTHER WRESTLER CAUGHT IN THE STEROID FRENZY

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.

  LINDA MCMAHON SHEDS A LITTLE LIGHT ON STEROID USE IN WRESTLING

vince__linda_mcmahon-steroidsLinda McMahon is not only Vince McMahon’s wife. She is the CEO of the World Wrestling Entertainment, and she had also been called for questioning by the  U. S. Congress with regards to rampant anabolic steroid use in professional wrestling. Linda McMahon’s interview was far more useful than the highly criticized Vince McMahon testimonial. In fact, Linda gave a very interesting comment about Ted Turner, one of America’s most prominent businessmen.

Obviously, gone are the days when the then-WWF strongly showed their support for steroid testing policies. From what Linda McMahon pointed out, Turner didn’t openly promote the use of steroids in order to gain more wrestlers. He just kept a blind eye on wrestlers using steroids. It’s no wonder that Turner was able to lure a lot of individuals into joining professional wrestling in the mid-90s. It wasn’t just the smell of money that attracted them; it was the opportunity to get away with steroid use in a profession where you’re looked upon as the next action hero.

Maybe the congress didn’t waste its time getting Linda McMahon’s testimonial, but the question really is: Why didn’t they get one from Ted Turner himself? With such an obvious lead Linda had given then, it makes you question the committee’s efforts in getting behind the steroid action in the world of wrestling.

  A LOOK AT McMAHON’S RESPONSE TO WWE’S STEROID SCANDAL

mcmahon-steroids1It was just recently when Rep. Henry Waxman revealed the wide use of performance enhancing drugs in WWE and TNA. It was only recently when various wrestling officials have been interviewed about this issue. Vince McMahon, the chairman of the World Wrestling Entertainment Board of directors and also a major shareholder, was one of those important figures who spoke up. Unfortunately, not everyone was contented at how he addressed the matter, such as Rich Twilling, who wrote in his article:

Twilling is very bothered by the fact that McMahon is refusing to answer questions on his own steroid use and pretending not to know anything about the rampant use of these drugs in wrestling. There are many factors that would make you think whether McMahon was lying or not. First of all, he could have just easily said “No, I didn’t use anabolic steroids” if he knew it was the truth. Second, he becomes overly defensive when addressed with the issue. Third, the way he answered seemed like he was putting on a show, just like in regular wrestling matches.

The Oversight Committee shouldn’t be content with the information they get from McMahon. Wrestling is his game and wrestlers, his people. Of course he would do everything to protect them. He isn’t called “the boss from hell” for nothing
