Five years after Wrestlemania VII, in 1996, Linda McMahon eliminated WWEs drug and steroid testing policy. It was not reinstated until a decade later in 2006. In the intervening years, seven performers from that Wrestlemania died before the age of 50…from health issues related to illegal drugs and steroids that became pervasive in the WWE while McMahon made hundreds of millions.
