Secretive world of WWE exposed
Debate over role of steroids in wrestling sharpens in wake of double murder, suicide
By Joshua Molina
 
Just weeks after a gruesome double murder-suicide devastated the dimly lit world of professional wrestling, the embattled industry limps into San Jose tonight for one of its biggest summer shows.
 
In the ring, in front of thousands of screaming fans, the stars will perform as though nothing has happened. But the deaths of wrestler Chris Benoit, his wife and 7-year-old son — and last week’s findings that Benoit’s testosterone levels were greatly elevated — have sharpened debate about the role of steroids in wrestling.
 
And with the recent indictment of a wrestling doctor for alleged illegal steroid distribution, talk of congressional hearings this fall, calls for a wrestlers’ union and the emergence of ex-stars blowing the whistle, the lucrative — and largely secretive — world of wrestling is getting unmasked.
 
Flying under the radar
 
World Wrestling Entertainment, the industry’s largest player and the promoter of tonight’s “Great American Bash” at HP Pavilion, last year reported $400 million in revenues, according to filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Pro wrestling has enjoyed such phenomenal success in part by flying for years under the regulatory radar.
 
“There’s no regulation,” said Marc Mero, a former WWE star who wrestled under the moniker “Johnny B. Badd” and says drugs and steroids are common in the industry.
 
Mero points to a widely circulated list compiled from news reports and industry sources that names more than 100 wrestlers — not all of them affiliated with the WWE — who have died young since the 1980s, when wrestlers such as the Junkyard Dog and Andre the Giant became household names. Many have died in their 30s and 40s from heart attacks or complications that experts say could be linked to steroids or other drugs.
 
“It is crying out for an explanation,” said Dr. Gary Wadler, a member of the World Anti-Doping Agency’s Prohibited List and Methods committee.
 
WWE lawyer Jerry McDevitt said Wadler bears a grudge against the company. Wadler served as an expert witness in the federal government’s 1994 steroid distribution case against WWE chief executive Vince McMahon, who was acquitted.
 
Mainstream sports, of course, also have been plagued by questions about steroid use in recent years. Fans of Major League Baseball and professional cycling bemoan the perception that athletes are cheating and hallowed records being broken thanks to performance-enhancing drugs.
 
In wrestling, where the outcomes of matches are predetermined, fans’ expectations of fairness are different. But there’s still an incentive for performers to juice: The biggest, most heavily muscled wrestlers often are promoted to headliner status, which brings with it much beefier paychecks.
 
World Wrestling Entertainment is not entirely to blame for the industry’s problems. In fact, after the death of top wrestler Eddie Guerrero in 2005, the WWE instituted a wellness-testing program, administered by Dr. David Black of Aegis Sciences, an independent company.
 
The effectiveness of the testing, however, is under intense scrutiny in light of the Benoit tragedy in Fayetteville, Ga.
 
An autopsy revealed Benoit’s urine was full of synthetic testosterone, which is considered an anabolic steroid.
 
Under World Anti-Doping Agency regulations, a normal testosterone-to-epitestosterone ratio for an average man is 1:1. Among professional athletes, 4:1 is acceptable.
 
Cyclist Floyd Landis was stripped of his Tour de France title after his test results showed an 11:1 ratio.
 
Benoit’s testosterone level at the time of his death was 59:1.
 
Even before Benoit’s autopsy results were announced, WWE officials refuted any suggestion that “roid rage” had played a role in the deaths.
 
Black told MediaNews that Benoit was undergoing testosterone replacement therapy, and the levels found in his urine were consistent with his treatment.
 
The chief medical examiner in the case also concluded there was no evidence steroids played a part in the murders.
 
But whatever their role in his death, Benoit clearly used anabolic steroids, according to court records.
 
A federal indictment in June of Benoit’s physician, Phil Astin, alleges Astin prescribed “on average, a 10-month supply of anabolic steroids to Mr. Benoit every three to four weeks from May 4, 2006 through May 9, 2007.” The Benoits’ bodies were found June 25.
 
Astin also is charged with providing more than a million doses of prescription drugs and steroids — in just two years — to patients other than Benoit.
 
Popularity undamaged
 
The scandals don’t seem to have hurt wrestling’s popularity. The San Jose event — which includes a championship bout between two of the industry’s most muscular performers, John Cena and Bobby Lashley — was already a near sellout Friday, with only a few nosebleed seats left.
 
San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed said he used to take his children to wrestling matches but now would discourage kids from attending.
 
“They need to take care of their drug problem,” Reed said. “Otherwise, the sport, the entertainment, whatever you want to call it, will self-destruct.”
 
Indeed, the WWE’s defensiveness on the steroid issue has prompted industry watchdogs to call for stricter testing policies.
 
“The system failed Chris Benoit,” said Campbell resident Dave Meltzer, who edits the Wrestling Observer newsletter and has covered wrestling for more than 20 years. “The system that was supposed to keep him off steroids after Eddie Guerrero died didn’t.”
 
After a first positive test, wrestlers’ pay is suspended, but they are kept on TV for storyline continuity. For a second offense, they can be sent to rehab. They have to test positive three times before they are fired.
 
All the attention also has sparked talk of overhauling the way the WWE does business.
 
The company’s wrestlers perform more than 200 times a year but do not have health insurance or pension plans. WWE salaries range from about $50,000 annually to more than $2 million for top stars.
 
Mero, the former star, believes wrestlers should affiliate with the Screen Actors Guild or another union.
 
“In baseball, these guys are just hitting more home runs,” he said. “We are dying.”

Original Entertainment
Chris Benoit Tragedy – Has It Played A Role In WWE Ratings Decline?
By Gia Cortina
Jul 22, 2007
 
Has the Chris Benoit tragedy played a role in the recent WWE decline in ratings?
 
WWE Superstar Chris Benoit allegedly killed his wife Nancy and 7-year-old son Daniel, before taking his own life on the weekend of June 22nd.
 
Since the tragedy, Nielsen ratings of the two-hour Monday night “WWE Raw” on USA, have dropped by 10 percent in total viewers, reports John Dempsey with Variety.
 
Also experiencing a decline, Sci Fi Channel’s Tuesday night “Extreme Championship Wrestling”, where ratings have dropped by 9 percent in total viewers.
 
However, a spokesman for World Wrestling Entertainment said there’s no proof these declines are due to the Benoit tragedy.  The two series, he said, faced some stiff competition during July, citing “Home Run Derby” on ESPN and even a Larry King Live interview on CNN that featured WWE Champion John Cena.
 
In addition, WWE’s staff writers were forced to scrap the popular story-line, introduced during a “Raw” episode that postulated that Vince McMahon was murdered in a limo explosion and that authorities were trying to find the killer.
