ugh Drugs & Wrestling

Letís talk about two favorites of the past few years, RVD & Jeff Hardy. Should WWE condemn wrestlers for smoking marijuana if it helps them in their bodily pains? Marijuana is known not to be physically harmful and itís rare that someone becomes violent when they are stoned.

Both RVD & Hardy were suspended for marijuana use, along with mass doses of pain killers. (assumed)

If the WWE doesnít want their athletes to take mass doses of pain killers (which are often accompanied with steroids) then perhaps the WWE is pushing the athletes to work to much, to hard, to often and not allowing their bodies to fully recover the internal damages they receive from the matches.

Should the WWE change any of it policies that can benefit the athletes?

Smoking anything hurts your lungs, especially when it's not filtered. Just so ya know.

Bottom line is that it's the government's call, not WWE's. If weed, steroids, etc weren't illegal I don't think WWE would even give a damn.

I understand your POV, but until recently, WWE was more of a "don't ask, don't tell" type of company. They've only recently in the past few years started testing for drugs, because of the increase of deaths that was occuring. Most of these deaths were caused by excessive coccain use, marijauna doesn't kill.

The steriods also play apart of it, but steriods is a broad name of multiple types of this drug. Some types of steroids are less harmful to you and are effective with bringing down the swellling of certain bodily tissue. Were the more hermful steroids were used for bulk increase of the wrestler's bodies.

Jeff Hardy was likely taking heavy doses of pain killers mixed with pot, because as he has said in a recent interview... ďMy body feels weak in a lot of places,Ē Hardy told me in an interview last January. ďI know Iíve got herniated discs in my neck and my back, which isnít extremely serious ó they could lead to being serious. Iíve got [bone] chips in my elbows. I canít wrestle a match without getting my ankles taped because they feel like theyíll shatter on me. Recently, I think I got a chip in my right kneecap, which is really starting to bother me.Ē

http://weblogs.baltimoresun.com/spor...uspension.html

Anyone having this many pains would be prescribed several types of pain killers. And if anyone here as ever suffered seriously, they know that pain killers don't really work when taken in the regular presribed amount. And if you continue, your body will build a higher tolerence for the drugs, then you would likely take heavier doses to help with the pain. Such as Jeff Hardy.

Weed isn't that big a deal its only a 1000 fine. Rob wass suspended for getting busted with weed, while being the WWE Champion, and traveling with a Sabu, who had enough pain killers too kill a small tribe in Africa.


Jeff Hardy is on Meth, Heroin, Coke, and Pain killers...The top face in the company can't be a junkie.

No offense Truthhh, but do we actually know what Jeff was suspended for, specifically? Cos it could just have been lots of pain killers, that weren't properly subscribed to him.

Regardless, the guys a dick, but just wondering whether there is confirmation of what he was busted for.

Jeff I know is known for his drug usage, but I think this suspension was fueled by Jeff's house burning down due to unseen electrical faults underneath his house. He not only lost his house and all of his past, all his memories and things that cannot be replaced, his dog was in that house and it died too.

Of course drugs are no solution for anything but I do feel for him because it would very heartbreaking & stressful to lose everything in a fire.

I think maybe the WWE should work harder on trying to help these wrestlers instead of suspending them, I know they have a program and you can't force anyone to quit, I think there is more than could be done, I also think that being on the road and working so hard contributes to that, I think most of those wrestlers are worked too hard and Vince needs to let go a little, I mean christ he can't worry about money, he's sitting on billions, maybe he wouldn't have to work them so hard, and fire, suspend and bring back so much talent, and may I add the writers, if he gave them some time.

But thats just my opinion, i'm not an expert on wrestling, so I may be wrong.

Exactly what I was thinking. According to Wikipedia, he was suspended for 60 days as of March 11, and the house was reported as burnt down on March 15 and I'm sure it doesn't take long to report a burnt down house.

It had nothing to do with the suspension, his house burning down was just a very sad coincidence that happened shortly after.

McMahon does help in any way he can, he's not the tyrant that the industry tries to make him out to be, that's his character. He is helping Jeff out by getting him into rehab, and discipline is a great form of help too. So in a sense, the suspension is good. It gives time for the rehab & for Jeff to really consider what's most important in his life. I hope he chooses performing in the ring over taking these drugs, cause I really do enjoy watching Jeff in the ring.
