Trivia

Because of the steroid scandal that rocked Vince McMahon and the WWF, sponsors started demanding the Gladiators be drug tested. In his autobiography, Nitro, who now openly admits his steroid abuse problems, stated that they were given six weeks advance notice before the tests. While he didn't out anyone else, he explained that this allowed him to get the drugs out of his system, and then after the tests were over, get right back on them. See more »
