Is this the end for the WWE ?
Thu, August 30, 2007

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.

Stamford-based WWE says it issued suspension notices based on independent information from the prosecutor’s office in Albany County, N.Y., which has been investigating illegal steroid sales.

Should the WWE have done this earlier? Share your thoughts in our forum.

I am almost embarassed to be a fan now. I have followed wrestling since the Stampedw Wrestling says with Ed Whalen. I am sure he would be saying "Cut it" in his grave now. The WWE became a major juggernaut in very sort period of time and now looks to be freefalling out of favour. A real shame.

Vince only pushes massive superhero wrestlers then tells them they can't use steroids. Must be confusing for the talent.

Of course they should. There also should not be a 3 strikes and your out rule. If you are caught they should be given a 5 year suspension.

The WWE is literally screwed in my opinion now that their credibility is shot thanks to these recent revelations.

I for one am glad I made the decision to stop watching their product a week before the Benoit Murder-Suicide.

Will the WWE make the necessary changes? Yes, but it is already too late.

Will they go the way of WCW within the next year or two? Probably.

"Wrestling's fixed? They are on 'roids? Wow, stop the presses. It is NOT a sport - it's weird entertainment for a bunch of morons.

And how is this different than you cheeze?

I can not see how the WWE can survive in it's current form. the bar has been set so high as far as the bodies, the spectacle and the in ring performance. These men can not perform what they do without steroids so i don't know what the WWE can do??. i guess the only thing i can say is bye bye WWE, it was nice, i can not see any sponsors or T.V networks associating with a company with such a bad rep and if you ask some people blood on their hands

I hope this is the end of the WWE. How anyone can sit and watch such garbage is beyond me. There are alot better ways to be entertained than by this rubbish.

Next thing is to get all this poker off tv especially the sports channels. Cant change a channel it seems like without some station showing poker.

Hockey camps open in 2 weeks so Go Leafs Go.

I hope it's the end of the roid monkeys like Batista and Lashley.Unfortunatly it is only the end of the roid problem if Vince or the Government says it is.

just reminds me of 1995 all over again.when hogan and macho man went to wcw spoke out bout the steroids in wwe.they should had the wellness program alond time ago here after the 1995 incident.wonder why tna wrestling and ufc are beating them out on ratings and buyout on ppvs.
