Steroid usage has always been a controversial topic in the wrestling world. During a recent episode of his podcast, AEW commentator Jim Ross discussed the usage of steroids.
Here's what he had to say:
Look, it’s a performance art. It’s not the NFL, and I’m not so sure it makes a sh*t even in the NFL. It has the same negative baggage that marijuana has. It has not been accepted widely, mass appeal… it has not been accepted widely enough to get that, ‘Ok, it’s alright.’
He also said that the money from decriminalization of steroids could be used for better things:
“The bottom line as Stone Cold would say is a lot of money is going to the bottom line of these State coffers that need the money for school books and things of that nature. As long as that money is being put to good use for the children and educating our people for one thing and for health care, things of that nature, then hell yeah. Let’s create new money, new revenue.”
