WWE Hall of Fame inductee Jesse Ventura spoke with CYInterview.com about the recent spate of deaths in professional wrestling and why so many of his past co-workers have died in recent years.

Ventura said “I know why. I don’t have to answer that question. They abused steroids and they abused a lot of other things and when you do that, you’re living life in the fast lane and you know, you roll the dice. I don’t need to ask a question because I know why they’re dying. You notice I’m not dying, because I never abused steroids. I tried them, but I never used them very much. If you notice, I still have my build. The guys who use steroids lose their build as they get older cause they gotta stay on them.”

Ventura also noted that he feels no pressure to return to politics due to a lack of interest in the American people. “The average American has shown me that they’ve earned me yet…. I say that in this aspect, this country is a bunch of lemmings now. They get marched right off the cliff and until they show me a break from this lemming mentality, I’m not putting myself up out there.”

He's telling the truth, but wish when he'd talk about 'other things' he'd be more specific, because he literally named steroids. At the end of the comment that's all people will remember. Makes the statement biased.

He does leave out other obvious substances of abuse such as opiates, barbiturates, amphetamines.... Had to be the juice that killed em!

What, you mean there are steroids out there? Jesse claims steroids, but he is "wrestling" anymore either. Look at some of the stupid shit those guys do their bodies day in and day out. Those collisions they put themselves through can't possibly be healthy.

Standard media manipulation. Anybody remember Taylor Hooten? If you use gear you should. He was a 16 year old in Plano, Tx(my backyard) that died "from steroids" in 2003. Why is this important? His daddy was very well connected and is indirectly responsible for the harsh legislation and current legal tasking towards AAS. The "Taylor Hooten Foundation" is now a well funded lobbyist organization that has one purpose, eradicating steroids and punishing the people that use them. Even the shakedowns in pro baseball were directly prompted by requests from the Taylor Hooten Foundation. So how did Taylor die? He hung himself. I know....hung himself = steroid death, wtf? The toxicology report for Taylor Hooten discovered anabolic steroids in his blood stream, and from that one line came, "Taylor Hooten, 16, killed by fatal dose of steroids." A little investigation reveals that Taylor was in the middle of a heavy cycle when mommy and daddy found his gear. Being good American parents and not wanting to deal with their own child, they threw his gear away and sent him to a psychiatrist. The psychiatrist, in good American fashion, prescribed him an array of anti-anxiety, anti-depressant and anti-psychotic medications. Taylor went home and after several days of drinking heavily and ingesting excessive quantities of his "mediction" was found hanging in his bedroom. ALL of the aforementioned compounds, including alcohol, are in the tox report, but only steroids made the news. 2 out of 3 of his prescriptions list depression as a side effect and all 3 explicitly state that alcohol is not to be consumed while on the medication. Point of this rant, America wants a demon to blame, the media obliges.

I heard the word steroids, never heard blame.......my 2c. MAYO

I remember that man and one of the major side effects of any antidepressant concerning teens is suicidal thoughts, not to mention that his hormones had to be all out of whack after stopping cold turkey.

Tri-cyclics anti-depressants have such a high number of teen deaths related to them its horrible. When prozac came out at first gentle housewives were blowing their husbands heads off for no reason. They didn't know why they were doing it, just did it. Again no FULLY looking at the situation and evaluating it honestly. Keep pumping that big pharma gravy train huh.

I'm sure if we looked closely, those "gentle housewives" were probably rampant steroid abusers too.....:rolleyes:
