Cases like this keep popping up throughout all of wrestling in the world, and in some cases, it has even lead to death. Painkillers are a common drug taken amongst wrestlers so that they can keep on going through any niggling pain they have after a show the following day.

Wrestlers like Shawn Michaels and Rey Mysterio used to take painkillers, and it is rumoured Eddie Guerrero and Chris Benoit did too before their deaths.

TNA's Victory Road 2011

Whilst everyone knows about Ric Flair’s partying inside and outside of the ring and the infamous Hulk Hogan’s steroid abuse as well because drugs abuse was a huge problem in wrestling drug the 1980s and early 1990s, many may not know about the match between Sting and Jeff Hardy at TNA’s Victory Road in 2011.

Hardy stumbled to the ring looking out of it, and something in his eyes he didn’t look right when the lights came on. Eric Bischoff, who had a backstage role at TNA at the time, came out and spoke to Sting and the ref.

The match started and was over in just over a minute, with Hardy looking shocked Sting had pinned him to end it. Fans were left extremely disappointed. Sting can even be heard saying 'I agree' towards the fans, as he was unhappy with how long the match lasted, and with Hardy too.

It’s so important that wrestlers manage themselves, but also look out for one another in the business especially when it comes to drugs. It can be so damaging to the product if they don’t and can cause fans to turn off to a certain show and wrestler completely.
