I saw Vince’s interview with Meredith Viera at the gym this morning. She pretty much grilled him about the Chris Benoit tragedy. Vince did his part and (correctly) portrayed Benoit as a monster, but it doesn’t seem like the media is going to let this steroid angle go.
The seem pretty set on making this out to be “roid rage”. Over a three day period? I don’t think so.
Now to the bigger question…is steroid use rampant in professional wrestling? Uh, you think? Does that question really even need to be asked?
Seriously, if you know so little about steroids and the signs of steroid use that you need to ask that question about anyone on the WWE roster, you don’t have the adequate background knowledge to ask if this was an instance of roid rage.
And again, why is the mainstream media even covering this beyond the published facts of the case? Yes, it is a horrible tragedy, and I can see why the people who actually follow pro wrestling want to know more about it, but outside of that small market it is just more sensationalist journalism.
In other late breaking headlines…Did you hear that Paris was on Larry King? Did you hear the iPhone is coming out in a week?
