Lance Storm is entitled to his opinions and stance on steroids, but, really, he is a dumbass.
He was a professional WRESTLER. This is not even a real sport! I laughed when I read his sentence mentioning Pro Wrestling in the same vein as the NFL, NBA, MLB, etc. In those sports, while steroid use is common, it is against the rules; it is cheating. But Pro Wrestling? It’s a show, it’s entertainment. The fans want to see massive veiny freaks like Batista etc, not Lance Storm, who while in good shape, has a physique like me and probably half of the people on T-Mag.
Maybe if he had taken some gear he would still be on Vince McMahon’s payroll, and not unemployed.[/quote]
“As sad as this sounds, believe me when I tell you, with the possible exception of pro-golf virtually every professional sport out there and most of the amateur ones have athletes on steroids competing in them. If being faster or stronger or bigger is a good thing, people will be taking steroids. There are athletes on steroids in the NBA, NFL, NHL, Pro-Wrestling, Pro-Body Building, Pro-Boxing, The Olympics, you name it.”
tell me how that paragraph illustrates pro wrestling in the same light as the other sports mentioned…BESIDES the fact that it states some athletes in each of those respective sports are on steroids. the key focus of the statement being the ATHLETES. everyone knows wrestling is entertainment first and foremost…but in no way are wrestlers lesser athletes or have less physical demands placed on them than any athlete in the big four of professional sports.
