You know its funny how many WWE fans defend WWE by quoting the its health and wellness policy. Its like as if the fans know the intricate details of this policy and the fact that its so stringent.

My argument here is to point out that the policy is a sham and was introduced to negate the negative coverage of WWE when a lot of wrestlers died from steroids.

First, the fact that this is not a third party means that it is completely subjective and biased. Come on, it's like a bank like Morgan Stanley saying we got our team to check for FSA rules, and we don't need any independent party. Any checkup is going to be biased.

Second, the fact that it has not deterred wrestlers from taking steroids. It's like the health warnings on a cigarette packet, you just ignore that and smoke on.

Third, the fact wrestling is purely based on looks and not on athletics, so steroids will always be a big part of WWE and all other federations.
