Benoit Update: Konnan, Painkillers, Doctor Released

Ryan Clark


Konnan discussed the Benoit tragedy, steroids, and drug issues in professional wrestling today with the New York Daily News. Konnan said, “Everybody – I can guarantee you, 100% from top to bottom – everybody’s either on steroids, painkillers, they drink or they take recreational drugs, and in the case of half the guys, all four.” He added, “Nobody gives a —-. When that baseball player (Orioles pitcher Steve) Bechler died from ephedra, everybody got all upset and reacted and they banned ephedra. (In wrestling), it’s all these guys – big names – and, nothing.”

When Dr. Phil Astin was released from jail yesterday, he had “no comment” to reporters in Georgia.

Chris Benoit was the most searched name on the Lycos search engine this past week.

Bret Hart is scheduled to appear on this MondayĆ¢<80><99>s Larry King Live to discuss the Benoit family tragedy.
