Source rajahwwf.com HBO’s segment on the deaths in professional wrestling on their “Real Sports” with Bryant Gumble just aired. The segment was not as long as I would have liked to have seen but placed a rather large bit of the blame on Vince McMahon. Wrestlers who were involved with WWE that were interviewed for the piece included “The Patriot” Del Wilkes, Rowdy Roddy Piper, and Vince McMahon. The feature showed clips of wrestlers that have died at a young age. Names included Brian Pillman, Rick Rude, Davey Boy Smith, Curt Hennig, and others. Del Wilkes revealed that during his peak in his battle with pain pills he was taking 100 pain killers a day. He said that he did it because everyone else was. Wilkes went on to say that if he were in the locker room with 10 people, at least 7 were taking drugs. Piper made some of the most interesting comments. He revealed that he lived a life of drug and alcohol abuse for 20 years and sounded like he only returned to WWE because he is a 49 year old man that can not take out his pension until he is 65. Piper said that he doubted that he will even see 65. The most interesting thing that he said was that he does not watch himself on WWE television because he hates the man that he sees and knows what that man is capable of, referring to himself as that man. Vince McMahon definitely looked rattled during the segment and even lost his temper in the interview by smacking the papers almost out of the hands of the gentleman that was interviewing him. McMahon asked him if he was supposed to be responsible for every wrestler who dies. He said that he will not assume responsibility for any of the deaths and if wrestlers can not handle it they should get out. McMahon said that he is the one that gives them the opportunity. Bryant Gumble talked to the guy who interviewed McMahon and mocked him by saying that he would not smack his papers out of his hands. There was a statement read that quoted made by Vince McMahon saying that he saw no reason to do testing in the WWE locker room. They ended the segment by saying that the problem is on going, despite McMahon acting like it was just a problem of the 80s.
