Top 10 WWE Stars who Used Steroids

8. Rick Rude

The man with the greatest physique in wrestling history. It wasn’t a surprise when fans found out that he used performing enhancing drugs. Rude was a good wrestler and even better on on the mic, but, nevertheless, he was never considered elite and never had a long reign as a major champion. In 1994, Rude admitted to the use of anabolic steroids during the time of the US government’s crackdown on the WWE.

Rude died in 1999 at the age of 40, due to heart failure and an autopsy report showed an overdose of mixed medications. Though steroids weren’t the reason for his death, the years of consuming them couldn’t have helped.
