World Wrestling Entertainment has suspended 10 of its wrestlers for violations of a policy that tests for steroids and other drugs, the company said Thursday.

Doesn't Vince look like he takes steroids or something?

if you can show me a man in wrestling who did not do steroids I can show you a dog that does calculous verbally, in his head.

The Albany DA released a list of names linked to the Florida pharmacy that they took down back in February.

Those names include: Shoichi Funaki, Dave Bautista, Adam "Edge" Copeland, Chris "Masters" Mordetsky, John "Johnny Nitro" Hennigan, and Shane Helms.

Is this the wrestlers first time being caught? As long as they are all there for when I see them in the odyseyy in Belfast in Novemeber I don't care to much. Wrestlers using steroids? Thought never-e-ever crossed my mind

Here is a list I found:

Among the names listed in the articles were Dave Bautista, Randy Orton, Charles Haas, Adam "Edge" Copeland, Robert "Booker T" Huffman, Shane Helms, Chris "Masters" Mordetsky, Mike "Simon Dean" Bucci, Anthony "Santino Marella" Carelli, John "John Morrision" Hennigan, Darren "William Regal" Matthews, Ken "Mr. Kennedy" Anderson, Eddie "Umaga" Fatu, Shoichi Funaki and Chavo Guerrero.

It is not known which of the various performers implicated have been suspended, as police investigations continue.

I wonder if these people are purposefully being made an example of, or if anyone will be like "but you told me to take them!"

There's no need to fear Underdog is here. :laugh:

You loose. ;)


Plus Shoichi Funaki did need to get bigger in a hurry. He always looked so puny in his matches. Always getting thrown around like a rag doll. :p

A few of those are major characters that are currently involved in the storylines. It will be interesting to see how this turns out. You can't judge by Smackdown because that is taped on Tuesday's.

I wonder if these people are purposefully being made an example of, or if anyone will be like "but you told me to take them!"

It's the "WWE Wellness Program" and in their contract.

He likely used steroids to help his body heal faster.

What difference does it make? 10-12 years ago the WWF or whatever went to court saying that they are not considered a sport and are sports themed entertainment, Hulk Hogan was deposed in court saying that matches are scripted and should not be under guidelines that apply to other sports. Now the WWE (foremerly the WWF) has a wellness contract?! Say wha'?


I'm totally confused, are steroids good or bad?

A controlled substance is a controlled substance. Therefore an illegal substance. Doesn't matter if you are an athlete or a couch potato.

When Soares' office began investigating the illegal sale and distribution of controlled substances, he said, his office sought the help of WWE after a number of its wrestlers appeared on customer lists of clinics connected with Signature Pharmacy.

I guess the bold parts are what got them investigated.
The headline made me laugh though.

In regards to the list AZ posted.

Randy Orton, Charles Haas, Anthony "Santino Marella" Carelli, Darren "William Regal" Matthews, Ken "Mr. Kennedy" Anderson, and Eddie "Umaga" Fatu all appeared on RAW last night.

Randy Orton was given a title shot at the next PPV (two weeks away). I've also read he is the only one of the 10 not to be suspended.

Charlie Haas appeared in a tag team match and lost.

Santino got beat up by the Sandman. Likely an injury storyline.

William Regal got beat up by John Cena. He was quickly replaced as GM by The Coach. Likely an injury storeline.

Mr. Kennedy appeared at the end of the show.

Umaga lost his championship in the first match and later he was beaten up by HHH. Likely an injury storeline.

John Morrision lost his ECW Championship to CM Punk over the weekend.

Tacky, they could have done something better than that IMO.
