IMO, it stemmed from jealousy. Sort of like a crusade by disgruntled, bitter former employees who felt they were wrongly released. So, they made a big deal out of the steroid usage, eventhough they participated in the lifestyle.

So to them, it eliminated a level playing field, passing off the idea that guys indeed were promoted based on their look. But to everybody else, it wasn't really that big of a deal, considering at that time and even in years after, steroid abuse wasn't the main killer.

Back in the early 90's news sources began to allege that Dr. George Zahorian III, a doctor for the Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission, had been selling steroids illegally to wrestlers in general and Hogan, Moondog Rex, Warrior, Bulldog in particular. Hogan appeared on an episode of The Arsenio Hall Show to deny the allegations. Due to intense public scrutiny, Hogan took a leave of absence from the company which is why he faced Sid and not Flair at WM8.


In 1994, Hogan, having received immunity from prosecution, testified in the trial of Vince McMahon relating to shipments of steroids received from Dr. Zahorian by both parties. Under oath, Hogan admitted that he had used anabolic steroids since 1976 to gain size and weight, but that Vince McMahon had neither sold him the drugs, nor ordered him to take them. The evidence given by Hogan proved extremely costly to the government's case against McMahon. Due to this and jurisdictional issues, McMahon was found not guilty.
Between this and Montreal you really dont grasp history OP.

Hogan and his pouch? What do you think Hogan kept in that pouch. Vitamins?
Google XPac's shoot on that. It was called Juvi juice. Warrior is full of shit.
