    That's awful. I mean, that he took his own life but he must have had his reasons. It seems like a lot of the WWE wrestlers have certain inner struggles that they go through and it's a shame that things like this happen.

    May he RIP.

    As for the roids/water thing. Mmm who knows...

    Well anyone who thinks they are not almost all on roids is a total fool. O'Haire definitely was, I can tell because I have a pair of eyes! Lots of retired wrestlers are also addicted to painkillers because of injuries from their work. I saw an x-ray of the spine of another wrestler called Chris Masters, it was bent into an S shape. No wonder they need the painkillers! The big problem is that they sometimes overdose by mistake.

    Roids thicken internal organs and heart valves. It almost killed Arnold. He has great doctors!

    yep... a lot of them are on those painkillers. even though it's scripted, the abuse on their bodies is like damn. back in the days, they made it cool as hell. now it's like damn.. crazy how chris masters back is fucked up. don't think he had a finishing manuever like mr. perfect with that suplex. i know that he fucked his back up because of that shit where he ended getting into the painkillers which eventually killed him.

    the sad part about the wwe now compared to back then and now is that it's not even entertaining as it used to be because of the storylines. even though it was fucked up looking back at how those dudes abused their bodies and etc with the moves and stunts, it was fun especially the drama associated with the storylines, the gimmicks, personalities, mic presence and etc. bret hart, stone cold, the rock, the undertaker, kane back when he first came out, the nwo taking over wcw. it was fun.

    the last ten years, you have a lot of guys that have no personality, gimmick, mic presence, are all body or whatever looking the same like randy orton, chris masters, and etc.. THEY SUCK. hell, they can't even sell a match or move right. it's embarrassing. i feel sorry for the kids of today. they're being cheated.


    A few weeks ago I watched the Rock vs Mankind "I quit" match. Now that doctors know more about what repeated concussions do to people, the Chris Benoit situation and so on, those 16 chair shots at the end are very hard to watch.

    oh that match... LOL. mick foley is a crazy motherfucker. don't know if you know this but he actually brought his wife and kids to the front row of the ring see that same match with him and the rock. there was a documentary about that where they showed the reaction of his kids when they saw their father getting hit with those 16 chair shots. surprised that he's alive after all that shit though. him and terry funk. i know he almost died during that hell in a cell match with the undertaker. i know you seen that match. that moment where the undertaker threw his ass off the cage.

    and chris benoit.... that headbutt move he liked to do besides that cripple crossface. pretty sure that did a lot of brain damage especially looking at all the times he missed.


    Yes that cage match, and the various ones with the drawing pins... the worst one is one in Japan against Terry Funk in a barbed wire ring with explosive charges around the ring. Very gruesome...

    I can tell you from experience its a tough life not everyone can do it. Steroids arent usually the main cause though. Its everything else. The fame is very fleeting and alot of guys cant handle being on top one day and back to real life the next. I did not know o' haire but I do know people who do. Im going through the same thing except its actually getting a shot to be in the bigtime just once. If i dont get it by the time Im 40 i dont know where to go honestly. Its a tough business . When it gets like this it gets more real than anybody can imagine. RIP Sean Ohaire .

    And Pazzy everything you said is absolutely true i miss those days . If wwf at that time was like it is today i dont think i would have wanted to even step in a ring. You cant compare Bret hart vs stone cold to the current product. That was wrestling how it should be and yes todays fans are cheated out of what it could be.

    A lot of individuals in the public eye when subjected to bullying and tease as children. They overcome by becoming famous but don't seek therapy to slay demons from their past.

    I always hate it when another wrestler I enjoyed watching dies young, impoverished or in some horrible way. It seems like a plague in the industry. I've read the laundry list of contributing factors: drugs, PEDs, low/sporadic pay, incredibly stressful lifestyle, injuries and all. It looks like MMA has some of the same problems too.
    I hope that with wrestling (and MMA) becoming more mainstream that the companies that run them will come up with ways to help their performers.

    Steroid abuse has been correlated with mood disorders and aggressive behavior. Also, it is associated with risky behavior (e.g smoking and alcohol abuse, and violent behavior). However, a causal relationship has NOT been demonstrated.

    A developing area of research that I personally think applies to wrestlers like the one in the article is chronic traumatic encephalopathy. Scientists have been studying NFL players to better understand this phenomenon. There is evidence that repeated concussions may cause long-term neuropsychological changes, including behavior/personality changes, depression, and suicidality. Also, associated motor symptoms (parkinsonism and other speech/gait abnormalities) have been described.
