Steroid SMACKDOWN! Another WWE Wrestling Steroid Scandal … 10 WWE Wrestlers Suspended

 

NEWS FLASH … There are steroids in Professional Wrestling!!! Would any of this occurred if it were not for the tragic murder suicide of Chris Benoit Steroids_needleand his family?

The WWE find itself back in the news for all the wrong reasons. Actually, it seems recently it is the only reason we hear about wrestlers and the WWE these days. The WWE suspended 10 wrestlers for breaking drug rules after their names were listed as clients of Signature Pharmacy in Orlando, FL. Before anyone starts applauding the WWE for their actions one really needs to understand that it is next to impossible to believe that the WWE did not know that their athletes were not on steroids. It took a drug probe to find names? All one would need to do is open their eyes. But when one has a don’t ask, don’t tell policy for ratings and fortune … why would you?

The action came after the 10 men – allegedly including former world champions Edge and Randy Orton, ECW champ John Morrison, Brit William Regal and rising star Mr Kennedy – were identified as clients of Signature Pharmacy in Orlando.

That company was busted by cops in February for the distribution of steroids and other prescription drugs to clients who had not been examined by a doctor.

Statement from the WWE

Check out the list of drugs that these wrestlers were pumping into their bodies.

Steroids have been an issue forever in the WWE; however, it was not brought to the forefront until just recently when Chris Benoit murdered his family and committed suicide. What is most laughable is that many of the wrestlers on this list have recently stated that wrestling was drug free. Was this a pro-active measure by Vince McMahon of the WWE or a CYA knowing that Congressional hearings are not to far away to address the issue of steroids?

Here is a list of the who’s who WWE wrestlers named that have been linked to steroids and the Signature Pharmacy raid.

  • Randy Orton
  • Adam Copeland (Edge)
  • Charlie Haas
  • Robert Huffman (King Booker)
  • Shane Helms
  • Mike Bucci (Simon Dean)
  • Anthony Carelli (Santino Marella)
  • John Hennigan (John Morrison)
  • Darren Matthews (William Regal)
  • Ken Anderson (Kennedy)
  • Chavo Guerrero

However there seems to be an issue over the timing of when orders may have been place as to whether wrestlers will actually be suspended or not by the WWE.

“It has been WWE’s practice not to release the names of those who have been suspended, but notice has been sent to all WWE performers that names of anyone who is suspended under the Wellness Policy as of November 1 will be made public.”

Despite the company’s unwillingness to reveal names at this point they have been leaked.

Sports Illustrated, who helped police with original bust, list the 10 as Mr Kennedy, Chavo Guerrero, Gregory Helms, Randy Orton, John Morrison, Shoichi Funaki, Charlie Haas, Umaga, William Regal and Edge.

These stars all received drugs from Signature Pharmacy ordered on the Internet after the WWE brought in their Wellness Policy in February 2006, which constitutes an automatic failure.

Batista, King Booker, Santino Marella and Chris Masters have also been named by the US press as using the company. Their orders were probably placed before February 2006 though, so they will not be suspended.

Simon Dean and Sylvan Grenier, both recently let go, were also said to be clients.

That means almost TWENTY current and recent WWE superstars have used the firm to purchase steroids and other drugs without seeing a doctor. (The Sun)

      dont forget mr mcmahon and john cena they both got big fast

    4. Ben on September 16th, 2007 10:22 pm

      It is possible to get that big without steroids believe it or not? I figured they would have made a safe steroid by now? But you gotta realize combining steroids with drugs is pandora’s box waiting to be opened. Steroids and Alcohol is severely unsafe. You shouldn’t even use performance enhancers with Alcohol. I have met a lot of wrestlers and they drink a lot, and the ones that don’t smoke green, and that isn’t as bad but there is no scientific proof?

    5. REY on April 6th, 2008 5:27 pm

      John Cena should not be on the list but CMpunk,sabu,lashley,Hogan,The rock,Hardcore Holly Bigshow,Floyod Money mawether and alot more should.

      John Cena took tests and was negative for steroids
      Rey was tested and positive
      Hogan was positive
      I doubt CM Punk does steroids and Big Show is massive but I dont think it is due to steroids

      Batista has to be on the juice…look at him!!!! He is unnaturally big!! Ok Cena is big, but with the cash those guys have and good genetics he could get that shape with the right proteins, amino acids, training, food, and sleep. But Batista looks jacked!

      When it comes to performance enhancing drugs I am biased. In one hand you have the “miracle drug” that gives you strength, muscle and the look of a “superstar”. But on the same token think about what there doing to there bodies. Liver and Kidney damage, heart problems/issues and just an all out short cure to a long term cause, meaning that the juice is hard to get off of when you first get the taste. But the wrestlers who chose not to juice, I tip my hat and heart to them. Even though some of the bigs I grew up watching were Juicers, ie Hogan, can’t hate him for it. I understand why they don’t it. It’s the “edge”. Hell I would do it if I were in there shoes. The public expect wrestlers to give there heart and soul plus there unborn children! I thinks it’s bullshit! But being an indy wrestler, you can’t help but your body in front of a pain freight train for them. For those that think that wrestling is fake I say this….Go to hell and step in the ring one time and try, you bunch of sofa sitting potatoe chip eating sideline quarter backs…. To everyone else keep it alive, cheer, boo and give your praises to the guys who giver there all for you.

      JOHN CENA IS AMAZING AND HE DOESN’T LOOK LIKE HE’S ON STEROIDS HE’S BODY LOOKS BIG BUT NOT IN A GROSS KIND OF WAY. I THINK MR. MCMAHN IS USING STEROIDS HAVE YOU SEEN HOW OLD THAT MAN IS AND HE STILL HAS ABS I DON’T THINK THAT OLD MAN SERIOUSLY LIFTS WEIGHT OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT

    17. beth on July 15th, 2010 6:18 pm

      Look, not all of the wrestlers are on steriods, to know who does steriods just look at their eyes, if they are red there is a chance if they are using. If they are overly buff then yes they use. Some of the clean superstars and diva’s include: CM Punk, Big Show, Beth Phoenix, Chris Jericho, the Miz and Mickie James.

      Take it from me, the SmackDown ring worker.

    19. kieran on February 26th, 2011 3:58 am

      I took ages 2 find out devstated wen i found my heroes were on steroids. Luckily none of my favourites were in there. All I can say is I hope they stop doing what there doing cuz they’re living a dream and at the same time putting their health in danger. But I’m not the one to speek, I don’t put my body on the line week in week out, but I don’t like drugs and that stuff.

    20. Micheal on September 30th, 2011 6:40 am

      Simon Dean use steroids? lol what about his simon system… is that full of drugs too?

    21. ernie on April 12th, 2012 5:49 am
