The Connecticut Post is advertising a major story for this Sunday on the federal government's examination of the steroid issue in pro wrestling. They relate it to the Linda McMahon seneate campaign. Not good news for Linda unless they are fair in their story.
The Shad Gaspard interview is apparently on tape which is not good news according to the interviewer. They also claim they edited a lot of nasty stuff out and that it was tame compared to what it could have been. Also, the article running had nothing to do with the Conan role and that line was added later. For those unaware, Gaspard did not end up getting the Conan villain role for 'Ufaka'. Bob Sapp actually got it.
