A blog reader points out that my earlier item about Dave Bautista’s interview with Mike Mooneyham is, if anything, far too gentle.
“Batista” calls the steroid investigation “somewhat of a witch hunt. Our company [WWE] has done everything it can to take care of it. Our wellness program is no joke and it’s serious.”
He insists that painkillers are the issue. I agree that they are an issue and another ingredient of the lethal cocktail. But if you look at the postmortem info on his good friend Eddie Guerrero — among many others, including Chris Benoit, who “passed” his wellness test — you have to be in complete denial if you think steroids aren’t a major factor in wrestling deaths.
Let’s again hope that the Congressional staffs pick up on these fundamental facts and inconsistencies.
