• Ryback Says Triple H’s Career Has Been Made On Steroids
During a recent edition of Conversations With The Big Guy podcast, former WWE Superstar Ryback talked about WWE’s drug testing and Triple H came up during the discussion.
Ryback said there’s no way Triple H gets drug tested in WWE:
“Hunter, there’s no way. And if he is, he’ll do one as a publicity stunt. Hunter’s whole career has been made on steroids. That’s f*cking — I grew up watching the guy. Without them, he doesn’t exist in pro wrestling.
And I grew up loving him as one of my favorites, and that’s what it is.
It is very biased what they do there and all that. But the policy in and of itself, I love it. I wish they had strict drug-testing policies in all of wrestling.”
