TheSmartMarks Forums -> Replying in Crash Holly passes away

First off and most important, RIP Crash, I always enjoyed the 24/7 and the super Heavyweight gimmicks.

Now, I've read through all the posts in this thread and have this to say.

Wrestlers get into this business to wrestle. If giving them two months off were to happen, all that would mean is some independents would have some great shows for those two months. Some would take the time off, but most would take the oppertunity to moake a few extra dollars. It's just not going to happen.

It's not Vince's fault that this is happening. You cannot watch that amount of people 24/7, as others have stated. It comes down to choices that people make. Vince is not standing over them throwing pills down their mouth or buying them a bottle of rum. If they choose to take those pills or have those drinks. It's on thier own head.

With Steroids, It's almost an occupational hazard, but as long as there are people who want to see the "super Human" bodies and people who are willing to do whatever it takes to get themselves there, they will be a problem. No one takes them without knowing what could/will happen. Once again, it's a choice.

Regulation is not going to help, commissions and inquirys are not going to matter. The only thing that is going to change what happens in this business that we all love is changing the type of people that decide to make thier living at it.
