1. No. You're mixing rumors and bullshit with facts and you're not providing sources to backup any of these claims. Vince personally hands steroids to his employees? Bullshit.gamedudex2 wrote:but drug test dont prove anything. if he has asubscription to any drugs its not counted. also since hes a major star its not counted eitheLunchbox wrote:Except it isn't a "job requirement" like you insist on saying, and the WWE does perform drug tests.

they only mention drugs if you arent a major star, benoit is a major star so he wouldnt have to worry.
randy orton failed several drug tests over the past 2 years, til recently. several times for steroids, and some for cocaine, he didnt get fired but got promoted. chris masters failed drug test for roids, and got rehab, why because he wasnt a major player, now hes getting a psh and has failed a recent drug test, but isnt getting in trouble, becuase hes getting a bigger spot on smackdown.
the wwe drug test policay isnt really strict about anything even roids, its pretty much a joke. wwe did one a while ago in the 90s, but had to void it because it would affect storylines, same with the current one.
vince has personally handed several wrestlers steroids on several occasions pre offering public stock in the company. and even then, aslo vince was and is a steroid user himself. same with his son in law triple h. hes been off them for over a year though, as you can tell by the gutt triple h now has. but just watch him make his return all ripped again.
bobby lashley is a roid user, rey mysterio as well. rey is a perfect example that roids is a job requirement in the wwe.
look at him pre wwe, skinny, look at him wwe, ripped compared. the guys way to big for his height, and because of the roids hes a shell of his former self, no wear near as athletic, because of him bulking up so much.
Workers don't get punished when they fail drug tests? Wrong. Under the guidelines they get penalized, not fired. When Randy Orton failed his tests he was pulled from house shows and forfeited his bonuses:
Also, when Chris Masters and Joey Mercury failed their tests they were sent to rehab. When Masters came back he was half his original size! And why should prescription drugs count when they're legal?
and 2. Theres a huge difference between "Vince likes big guys" and "Doing steroids is a WWE job requirement", and if you think the latter is the truthful statement then you need to pull your head out of your ass. You can't always assume steroids are involved when a guy bulks up, its bullshit. A lot of these guys work hard to tone their bodies. Look at Lashley. He's been working out even before he joined the army. He's been doing it his whole life, why would he need steroids?
We know Vince likes the bigger guys but the employees choose which way they want to go about getting bigger. Even then theres only one real way to go about it since the WWE performs drug testing. So why does the blame fall on Vince and the WWE when they have measures put in place to prevent wrestlers from juicing? If you nudge them one way, and they go another, who's to blame? Lets put things in perspective here:
Say for example... I owe the government tax money. If I rob a bank to get the money, is it the government's fault? No.
So really now, stop playing the blame game on Vince and the WWE. The wrestlers are adults who make decisions regarding their bodies and personal wellbeing for themselves.
