WWE Issues A Statement on Talent Substance Abuse

Nick Paglino

The Wrestling Observer is reporting that following the death of former talent Luna Vachon, WWE has issued the following statement concerning substance abuse:

"Not withstanding our extensive Talent Wellness Program for current Superstars, WWE goes to great lengths to help our former talent who may have substance abuse problems, offering complete drug rehabilitation at no cost to them. Ultimately, however, stars in any form of entertainment should be held personally responsible for their own actions. Prescription drug overdose is a problem not only with former WWE talent, but society as a whole according to the Center for Disease Control, as it is the second leading cause of unintentional death (particularly among younger people) in the U.S."
