An NFL Football player by the name of Lyle Alzado (1949-1992), died off of steroids actually that is incorrect. Lyle Alzado is the most brought up name in steroid conversations but the simple fact is just because people say it doesnt make it true. Lyle Alzado died of a brain tumor, not steroids. Even his own doctor and the leading qualified doctor specializing in steroids insure that steroids did not lead to his death, so enough of the Lyle Alzado name dropping, ok?

Steroids have recently been linked to brain cancers and can help feed them since steroids stimulate the liver into making more glucose; which feeds brain tumors.

Zero wrestlers have ever died from steroid use. Eddie Guerrero did not die from steroids and Chris Benoit did not die from steroids. Medical Professionals from the Sports Legacy Institute have studied those cases and have expressed that there is no evidence that steroids caused Chris Benoit to kill his family and himself. After examination, it was found that Benoit's brain had been subjected to so much trauma and had so much dead tissue that professionals described it as "resembling the brain of an 80-year-old Alzheimer's patient".

Rey Mysterio, Jeff Hardy, Dolph Ziggler (or Nicky from the Spirit Squad) and I'm guessing Batista (he looks like it anyway). These are all I know.

What WWE wrestlers have taken steroids that anyone knows for a fact not opinion?

I don't know exactley how many wrestlers have taken steroids or who they were but i know that Mr Mcmahon has definatley taken steroids because when he went to court about giving wrestlers steroids he addmitted to taking them himself in the 1980s i also know that chris benoit and Eddie guererro have both died from steroids. Guererro died on the toilet because his veins got clogged up from all the crap that was in the steroids he had taken and Benoit died because he took too many steroids and went mad and killed his wife and son because of it then when he became normal again he realised what he had done and hung himself. Even though lots of wrestlers probably take steroids that doesnt make wrestling bad i will still love wrestling no matter what
