Stone Cold Steve Austin’s ex-wife Debra Marshall (also a former manager and WWE diva) recently appeared on Inside Edition. Marshall said that the use of alcohol, pills, and steroids was out of control in wrestling. She said that when she was married to Austin he made up to $12 million his best year with WWE and hit her on three different occasions (Austin pleaded no contest to the 2002 incident and divorced her shortly after).
Debra went on to say that Vince McMahon rules this little world and if someone complains, he fires them. WWE issued a response to the show saying that they are doing everything they can to help the current performers lead a healthier lifestyles than pro wrestlers of previous generations and they have a zero tolerance drug testing program in place.
