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.

  TNA encouraged to have a wellness policy

TNA encouraged to have a wellness policyTotal Non-stop Action Wrestling, the second largest wrestling promotion, behind WWE is noted not to have a wellness policy.

TNA must seriously consider establishing a wellness policy as media would normally turn to WWE every time a wrestler gets busted for steroids or drug use.

There are number of reasons why TNA should have a wellness policy. It includes getting the message across that steroids and other performance enhancing drugs are not tolerated in professional wrestling.

TNA gives the impression of offering an open door for anyone using steroids, PEDs and painkillers.

Ex-WWE wrestlers involved in steroids issue usually enter TNA after being released from WWE. This creates a very negative impression on TNA.

Having a wellness policy improves TNA’s credibility, as more viewers become attracted to the company. Many wrestlers also prefer to work in a company with a clean and honest reputation to avoid their reputation from being tarnished in return.

A wellness policy is also one means to control future “accidents” or deaths in the future. Several wrestlers have wasted their life over drugs, stars such as the late Andrew “Test” Martin or Curt “Mr. Perfect” Henning.

Finally, media would less likely criticize pro wrestling if wrestlers come out clean. Nobody wants pro wrestling destroyed just because of controversies such as wrestlers getting caught from using steroids.

JIM CORNETTE AIRS SENTIMENTS ON STEROID USE IN WWEContrary to previous reports that Vince McMahon did not encourage the use of steroids, it seems that the selection process for wrestlers in the World Wrestling Entertainment had everything to do with the use of the banned substances. Jim Cornette, veteran commentator, promoter and booker for wrestling, expressed his sentiments over the condition of what wrestling has become today.

He says that wrestlers are forced to get into drugs because their professional career relies heavily on their physical appearance – powerful built, extremely muscular and vicious. The only way to achieve this is if they inject anabolics.

Cornette also gave an analyzed that because of the decrease in job opportunities for professional wrestlers and the pressure of giving the audience hardcore entertainment had them turning into drugs. As in the case of Martin who got fire and was re hired because he looked bigger and more muscular, that is after he used steroids. Vince McMahon has to accept the fact that wrestling is a dying business and careers in WWE are short lived especially for the newcomers.
