The ultimate warrior inducted into wwe hall of fame

The World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) has inducted @The Ultimate Warrior as the first inductee this year into the Hall of Fame.

On July 15, 2013, Warrior featured in a WWE 2K14 game trailer and revealed he was in the roster as a pre-order bonus. Warrior was selected as one of six legends to be included in the Defining Moments series of action figures.

In a statement, WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon said The Ultimate Warrior was the most intense, colorful, competitive, and outspoken Superstar in sports entertainment history, and his contributions to the World Wrestling Entertainment were extraordinary. McMahon added we are thrilled to induct The Ultimate Warrior into the WWE Hall of Fame.

Till date, fans remember the pulsating entrance music whenever The Ultimate Warrior entered the arena. The wrestler was known to be one of the best superstars of McMahon’s World Wrestling Federation and gave tough competition to Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage, Rick Rude and, “Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase. Considered to be one of most polarizing Superstars in the history of professional wrestling, Warrior (born James Brian Hellwig) is best known for the title-versus-title match  against Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania VI is still rated very highly by wrestling fans. The Ultimate Warrior won the WWF Championship when he pinned Hulk Hogan in the WrestleMania VI’s main event.

Hellwig won the 1984 NPC Mr. Georgia crown after competing in a number of NPC contests. In 1985, Hellwig joined a group of bodybuilders – Steve “Flash” Borden, Garland Donoho, and Mark Miller – who wanted to make a transition into professional wrestling. He then debuted in the Dallas, Texas-based World Class Championship Wrestling (WCCW) promotion in 1986 where Warrior wrestled for $50 a night. In June 1987, he joined the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) and defeated the likes of Steve Lombardi, Barry Horowitz, and Iron Mike Sharpe. Hellwig made his television debut as The Ultimate Warrior on the October 25, 1987 airing of WWF Wrestling Challenge.

The wrestler is best known for not having a very good relationship with Vince McMahon. In 1991, The Ultimate Warrior was shown the door by McMahon after the wrestler demanded more money for continuing showing up, including for the then upcoming SummerSlam pay-per-view. McMahon suspended him after SummerSlam and the wrestler was off television for as many as nine months before making a surprise return at WrestleMania VIII. After that, The Ultimate Warrior was again released probably due to McMahon’s upcoming steroid hearings. His woes with McMahon continued even after these events. He was fired after McMahon claimed that the wrestler missed events without a good reason. In 2005, WWE released a highly controversial DVD, titled “Self Destruction of the Ultimate Warrior,” WWE mocked the wrestler. The Warrior then filed a lawsuit against the WWE and claimed the DVD projected violated a March 2000 settlement agreement that stated both sides would not disparage each other. However, it was ruled by an Arizona judge that The Ultimate Warrior had breached his own agreement first for disparaging public comments about the WWE.

Steroids Were Found In Body Of Chris Benoit – cliff notes

Dr. Kris Sperry, Georgia’s chief medical examiner, has revealed that professional wrestler Chris Benoit, who killed his wife and son before hanging himself, injected anabolic steroids not long before he died. The medical examiner also said the son of Chris was sedated before his death.

The 40-year-old wrestler, who was nicknamed “The Rabid Wolverine” and “The Canadian Crippler,” as found dead with his wife, Nancy, and 7-year-old son, Daniel, on June 25, 2007 in their suburban Atlanta home.

Toxicology tests found drugs in all three Benoits, according to Dr. Sperry, who said elevated levels of steroid testosterone were found in the body of Chris Benoit and the anxiety drug Xanax was in the body of his 7-year-old son, Daniel.

The elevated level “is an indicator that he had been injecting testosterone, but how much, how frequently, how often and for how long is something that cannot be answered through this,” Dr. Sperry said.

According to investigators, anabolic steroids were among prescription drugs found in the home of Benoit. The urine of Benoit had about 10 times the normal level of testosterone, which is a form of doping in sports. The wrestler’s body also had traces of hydrocodone, a pain reliever, and Xanax and no other steroids were found.

Chris Benoit’s Last Match

The employer of Benoit, @World Wrestling Entertainment, made a statement that the professional wrestler had passed a random drug test in April.

The family physician, Phillippe Astin, M.D., who prescribed anabolic steroids to Chris Benoit in the year before the double murder-suicide went to trial on March 16, 2009 though there was not even a single charge related to anabolic steroids against him. The doctor faced charges of distributing and dispensing approximately one million dosage units of painkillers and stimulants classified as controlled substances, which included Percocet, Oxycontin, Demerol, Lorcet, Ritalin, Vicodin, Xanax, Klonipin, Methadone, Ritalin, Adderall, Dexedrine and Soma “for other than a legitimate medical purpose and not in the usual course of professional practice.”

Chris Benoit was identified by DEA Diversion Investigator Anissa Jones as an “excess purchaser of injectable steroids” during a federal investigation of Rx Weight Loss in Marietta, Georgia. Prescription records obtained from Jones Pharmacy in Fayetteville, Georgia suggested that Chris Benoit was prescribed 10-month supply of testosterone cypionate every 3-4 weeks from May 4, 2006 to May 9, 2007 on the prescription of Dr. Phil Astin.

In February 2006, Benoit received steroids from Signature, based on a prescription by Florida physician Gary Brandwein. The steroid pharmacy was also supplying anabolic steroids to top wrestlers Randy Orton, Charles Haas, Jr., Adam “Edge” Copeland, Robert “Booker T” Huffman, Shane Helms, Mike Bucci, Anthony Carelli, John “Johnny Nitro” Hennigan, Darren “William Regal” Matthews, Ken “Mr. Kennedy” Anderson, Eddie “Umaga” Fatu, Shoichi Funaki, and Chavo Guerrero.

Over a period of approximately 30 months between December 13, 2004 and June 22, 2007, Chris Benoit was prescribed 5,580 tablets of Lorcet (10mg), 3,600 tablets of Xanax (2mg), and 1380 tablets of Soma (350mg) while 3,690 tablets of Lorcet (10mg), 600 tablets of Xanax (2mg) and 240 tablets of Soma (350mg) between June 6, 2005 and May 30, 2007 to Nancy Benoit, his wife.

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.”

DWAYNE JOHNSON TALKS ABOUT STEROID USEThe talk of steroid use has moved from sports to the entertainment industry. Some people would wonder why those in show business are being asked for comment on a subject that has more popularity in the field of bodybuilding and athletics. But then consider the fact that there have been several athletes that have crossed over from professional sports to showbiz. Dwayne Johnson is one of them and proves that in reality there is no delineation between sports and showbiz when you talk about steroids.

In an interview with MTV, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson admits to have used steroids when he was playing in college football for the Miami Hurricanes. His reason was not to enhance his performance but out of curiosity. From college football he became World Wrestling Entertainment’s biggest stars.

Johnson further laments that there are still a lot of athletes attracted to steroids despite the sanctions and the attention that media was giving them. He says that it is important to teach children the value of hard work and the dangers involving the use of performance enhancing 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.

bsf-steroids“Mad Dog” Mike Bell, brother of Chris Bell, writer/director of the highly acclaimed steroid documentary Bigger, Stronger, Faster*, dies at 37. The cause of death is yet undetermined as results of a toxicology report are still pending, according to Poughkeepsie Journal.

Mike was a former pro wrestler for World Wrestling Entertainment and Extreme Championships Wrestling. He was also a football captain at Arlington and also played at the University of Cincinnati on scholarship.

Mike and the whole Bell family – brothers Mark and Chris, and parents Rosemary and Sheldon – were featured in the steroid documentary which tackled anabolic steroid use within the family as well as in American sports.  The film world premiered in January at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival and garnered great reviews.

It was through the film that the public had come to know of Mad Dog’s problems with recreational drugs and alcohol. Prior to his death, he had attempted to stay sober according to Chris. Mike had been living at a sober community in Orange County, Calif., at the time of his death.

“He had decided it was time to clean up his act,” Chris Bell said. “He was 60 days clean and sober and that was a first for him. For our family, it was a big accomplishment for him.”
