Latest Drugs ‘n’ Wrestling News

Jesse Haggard has become the final defendant to plead guilty in the Applied Pharmacy steroid/growth hormone case in Mobile, Alabama. See

Haggard was an associate of Arizona-based physician Dr. David Wilbert, who prescribed drugs for a number of pro wrestlers, according to Sports Illustrated in 2007. Haggard himself was a doctor of neuropathic medicine, an alternative discipline recognized in Arizona and a few other states.

Thanks to Anthony Roberts, “the CNN of the steroid world,” for the new info. Roberts blogs at

The historical problem of “mark” doctors who prescribe promiscuously for wrestlers is told in Chapter 12 of my book CHRIS & NANCY. Chris Benoit’s doctor, Phil Astin, is himself now serving a ten-year federal sentence. The first physician to get convicted for such practices, George Zahorian, pushed steroids to wrestlers in the World Wrestling Federation (now World Wrestling Entertainment) in the 1980s. See “Linda McMahon’s Husband Vince Fought the Law, and the Law Lost (Part 1 — Dr. George Zahorian),” December 21, 2009,
