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.

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.

It's shameful the way the deaths have followed WWE due to the overworked schedules and heavy use of steroids. After many years of faithful purchases and viewings, I don't watch WWE anymore in anyway - other than to watch the news coverage of the investigations.

I certainly hope this is the end of the WWE. Enough of this crap taking up good sports channels, wrestling has no place on a sports channel.

I could care less if this is the end of the WWE, I never watch it. Hopefully these wrestlers health will be ok 5 years down the road.

Its obvisous alot of wrestlers are using, I wouldnt risk my health for wealth, what good is it if you arent around to spend it ?

I can think of better ways to spend my time than watching something so fake it isnt even funny.

Good riddance WWE you wont be missed by me.

What did you expect? These are sideshow circus freaks. The WWE glorifies the largeness of these men. And all of the sudden its not OK to use steroids? They have known for years but this orginization turned a blind eye to what was really going on because freaks sell tickets. You don't get that big just by eating your Wheaties. DUH.

I do agree to be in the spotlight someone has to have a great body e.g. Lashley , HHH , John Cena , Batista and John Morrison , I would only take WWE serious if they make it public which 10 wrestlers in the roster are suspended , , as well its not fair that they keep it confidential as fans or use to be we have the right to know as well find out if they are doing good job or not

It's pretty sad when you need to take roids to get ahead in wrestling now adays. The wellness program that WWE started after Eddy died, should have been place along time ago. As far as the wrestler on pain killers i think that if you are in pain you should take something for it. Even thou wrestling is 99% fake, a wrestler can still get hurt. I think WWE, TNA, NWA AND ANY Other wrestling companys should fire any wrestler cought using roids. Doing that would the others to stay from the junk, if they want to keep their jobs and pay cheques.

Is this the end for the WWE? God, I hope so.

If you watch the UFC then watch Wrestling it's like watching the 300 or the Matrix then watching Saturday morning cartoons. Wrestling is a joke. It doesn't matter to me if it dies cause I never watch it anyway. But I'll admit I did back in the days of big Bob Orton and Rowdy Roddy!

We all know that most of the wrestlers are on some form of drug. Thats what makes this sport what it is. The wrestlers know the risk of taking performance enhancing drugs. They are not children and they know what can happen to them. Stop blaming the owner. The wrestler is the one who should be deciding if it is worth his life to take steroids and the superstardom that comes with it. Children today see the example as, Oh if I take steroids, yeah I would look good but I may also die from it. The sport will continue regardless of it being marred by this steroid issue.
