Rep. Henry A. Waxman has set up a tipline on the U.S. House of Representatives website concerning steroid use in professional wrestling. They want you, yes you, to contact them and give them any tips concerning steroid use in professional wrestling. For instance, you can let them know as to what certain individuals in WWE and TNA are up to, or how WWE’s Wellness Policy is faring at the moment, or what someone might have said in an interview concerning steroids. Furthermore, if you wish to retain your privacy and simply want to remain anonymous, but still want to give them a tip, they are up to that as well. You don’t have to leave your contact information as you can simply leave them an anonymous note. If you have any tips concerning steroid use in professional wrestling, you can fill out a form at oversight.house.gov/contact/wrestling.asp. Their webpage states the following: The Committee on Oversight and Government Reform continues to investigate allegations of steroid use in professional wrestling. If you have information that can further this investigation, please use this tipline to communicate with investigators. The Oversight Committee has the highest respect for confidentiality. As such, we respect your need to remain confidential and will use your contact information only to follow up with you regarding your submission. If you do not wish to provide contact information, you may leave the contact fields blank.
After a pretty rough year for the Hulkster with his son’s problems, divorce and everything in between, finally some good news went toward the WWE Hall of Famer. Thanks to the writers strike and decent ratings for the first two episodes, NBC has picked up the new American Gladiators series for a whole season. The debut show on Sunday delivered the highest ratings among adults 18 to 49 of any new show this season on any network matching the debut of Heroes in 2006. A total of 12 million viewers saw the show on Sunday. (Thanks to Colin Vassallo)
