Yeah, I'm aware of all that history but as I said it's tough to police the whole industry. For every WWE or TNA there's a little bitty wrestling business in Price Hill or Evendale that may draw 100 fans for a show if they are lucky. Unless someone else is footing the bill you're going to have a tough time getting these organizations to test their wrestlers. If they do and the wrestlers don't want to be tested they can always go somewhere else where they don't test. It's not like most of these wrestlers are clean and then all of a sudden they go to the WWE and start juicing.
Vince McMahon didn't get to where he is by being stupid. I'd be shocked if he doesn't institute a strong(er) steroid testing program. He doesn't want Congress poking around in his business. And that will get any Congressional heat off their backs but it does nothing for any other wrestling organization.
