DDP Discusses His Appearance On Nancy Grace
As noted earlier today CNN hack Nancy Grace had DDP on her show to discuss the passing of Warrior, and turned it in to a typical pro wrestling steroids and drugs witch hunt. At one point she even implied that there are rumors Warrior used illegal drugs (other than steroids) and showed a list of young dead wrestlers, implying the likes of Owen Hart died of drug abuse.
DDP wrote on Twitter that he was swerved:
I went on Nancy Grace last night expecting to discuss Warrior the man. Had I known the only topic discussed would be steroids I would not have participated. At the time I was also unaware of the list that was shown to the viewing audience. To imply that all of the wrestlers on that list died from steroids was wrong and for that they owe the families an apology. Again, my only intention was to discuss Warrior the man and share some stories about how dedicated he was to the wrestling business. I am saddened that was not what happened and my thoughts remain with his family.
Cody Rhodes (among others) also chimed in on Twitter:
Why are folks surprised by @NancyGraceHLN ?? She got dumped by a pro-wrestler in the 80s’ and started a life quest to be just awful… …if she was remotely confident in her accusations, she’d interview an active talent, yet she won’t do that because she’d have a… …”Mark Cuban/Skip Bayless” situation, and she would come-off as the ignorant sweathog she actually is.
