“That’ll last as long as it works to Vince’s favor in a PR sense,” one wrestler said. “Look at the roster. How many guys would they have to suspend if they really test everyone for steroids? It’s a little overambitious sounding to me.”
The wrestler also believes that the diehard mentality of wrestlers prevents the lifestyle problem (which, in many cases, could result in drug use) from easily being solved.
“Wrestlers won’t ask for time off unless they’re about to die,” he said.
There are, however, some wrestlers who are legitimately nervous about the policy, fearing either losing size due to loss of steroids or having a major addiction problem revealed to the industry.
