DDP noted that he saw Warrior at the WWE Hall of Fame last weekend, and while "he looked great" and his energy was as high as ever, you never know what's going on inside. Grace brought up that Warrior has admitted to past steroid use, and DDP said that "we all used it back in the day" - obviously referring to wrestlers, but Grace took it like he meant every person on the planet, and clarified that she never used steroids. DDP noted that Warrior was passionate about working out, and was not as big now as he was back in the day. The segment ended with Grace talking about rumors of drug abuse swirling for Warrior's death.
As you can imagine, a lot of people took offense to Grace's report, especially the list with Owen's name mentioned. Zeb Colter took to his Twitter to ask that Nancy Grace be deported, and later wrote, "If anybody receives an email entitled NANCY GRACE NUDE, do not open it. It's not a virus. It really is Nancy Grace nude. @NancyGraceHLN @WWE"
Owen Hart's oldest brother, Smith Hart, also issued the following statement on his Facebook page:
"I think our beloved sister-in-law Martha as well as my entire family should be tremendously offended by the implication of Nancy Grace that my brother Owens demise had anything to do with drugs or steroids. For her to attempt to capitalize on Warrior's death while his family grieves for personal choices he may have made more than 20 years ago is a sad to day for what passes as journalism today. Breaking news; Many rock stars snorted cocaine in the 80's. Perhaps we should shut down the entire music industry. We should not buy into any of their such ridiculous libelous statements. We will hear official details from the coroner this weekend and not from some gossip journalist."
