Wow. (More than likely)ANOTHER drug-related death in pro-wrestling. The saddest part of all is no one will learn any lessons from this, just like no one learned any lessons from Curt Hennig, Elizabeth, Louie Spicolli, or any other drug-related pro-wrestling death over the recent years.

Of course, because they can justify it that Durante wasn't an active star like them or whatever lies they tell themselves when all these people turn up dead.

Fellas, let's wait for some facts. It says he AND his girlfriend were dead. To me that doesn't sound like a "wrestling death".

And if you listen to Keller, based on his conversations with wrestlers he believes the boys have learned from the mistakes of the past. They have seen what constant steroid abuse, painkiller addiction, and the abuse of illegal substances can ultimately do. There are no people with obvious drug problems today; save for Jeff Hardy who they offered to rehabilitate and refused, and thus faced subsequent termination. Guys are handling themselves better than ever before, and there's no more 30 straight days on the road garbage. Now they try to get people home 3 days a week...the business has changed in accoradance with these tragedies.

Brian Pillman had a diseased heart inherited from his father, and he took steroids & cocaine and copious amounts prescription pills over the years, furthering weakening it. Every saw he had a problem. No one really did anything. But he probably would have died young anyway.

Curt Hennig took cocaine for 20 years and it caught up with him.

Elizabeth mixed painkillers and alcohol. This is a common mistake, but it is a very dangerous mistake. What does her death have to do with the wrestling business? Cashiers, lawyers, waiters, and computer analysts have all made this horrible mistake. This death has nothing to do with wrestling.

JYD turned over his car. Rick Rude juiced for 30 years.

These people made obvious mistakes, but I don't think we can say the ignoring of their passings by promoters is the reason no one's learned from their deaths. People have learned. The only wrestling deaths that have taught us nothing, are those of Owen Hart and Brusier Brody.

Looks like it was linked to painkillers. More from Meltzer:

Media sources in Rhode Island along with police have confirmed a series of needles found near the bodies of Anthony Durante and Dinna Hulsey, who were found dead yesterday in their rental house in Misquamicut, RI.

Oxycontin, a slow released painkiller drug that has gained popularity in pro wrestling in recent years was found near the body. Both victims had fresh needle marks, from apparent recent drug use.

They were shooting OC? WOW. That is just insane. That's pretty much like shooting Heroin or Morphine, not that I've done it before.

I wasn't saying that the promoter's had to do anything differently, although REAL drug testing for illegal narcotics would be nice. Not the "when he see a needle hanging out of your arm" testing policy.

It's just interesting and disturbing that in the past 10 years there have been so many drug related deaths or deaths of people with drug problems in the wrestling industry. Sure, they might not have been active competitors but it says something about the industry.

Is it the industry that leaves people physically dismantled and chemically dependant? Or does the industry attract those too weak or too uninformed to make the right choices?

Granted, it appears on the surface that there isn't the party atmosphere of the 80's and it's a lot of that generation that's dropping dead so perhaps some wrestlers have learned.

My original point was more of an overall statement about drug abusers. That no matter how many people they see die, they can always justify their behavior to themselves.

Shooting Hillbilly Heroin when you have two kids ... Those kids are probably better off with the horribly rough and unfair life they're going to have now.

Personally, I am of the opinion that if you die of an overdose, you got what you deserved. No sympathy at all from me. I feel sorry for his kids, but not them. Fuck them!

This kinda scares me, my mom is arthritic and OC is essentially a miracle drug that allows her to almost live again...



CHARLIE: I should have gone in. I'm such a chicken. I should have kissed her. I should go knock on her door and just kiss her. It would be romantic. It would be something we'd tell our kids about someday. I'm going to do that right now.

That's pretty cold. What if you have a close relative that becomes an alcoholic. Are you just going to give up on them and say, "Fuck Them"? Or are you going to be inconsistent?
WillGilman, don't worry abour your mother. OC is a valuable drug. It provides constant pain releif(sic) for those who need it.

Alcohol abuse if different to drug abuse, seeing as widespread rinking is readily accepted as a perfectly legitimate part of our society. Alcohol is pushed as a relaxant by television, newspapers, pretty much every form of media. Drugs aren't.

That's a pretty backwards justification. So it's all your fault if you die from a substance abuse, unless that substance is endorsed by the media? So if the media started praising heroin as a good relaxent, would it be alright if I overdosed on that?

This is a scary revelation...My mom takes OC and it's very scary to see this kind of thing...

Plus if it's a drug overdose like they say, then this situation is another black mark on adding to the stereotype that all wrestlers are pain-killer addicts and dope-heads...

this is a sad day...for everyone

They either got a bad batch of something, or both Pit Bull and his girlfriend were both idiots for both to OD and die. The real scary thing is that its believed both were dead a few days when they were found, and an 8 month old and a 20 month old had to fend for themselves for that time period before the bodies were found.

Well, to me, if you OD you are an idiot. If you are doing drugs with your two children in the house, you are an asshole. If you are so stoned that you cant function and it effects your children, then you are scum. So, if you OD and leave your kids orphans, I pretty much have no sympathy for you. The whole "Thats cold" doesnt effect me. Why should I pity or feel bad for somebody who makes a decision to do something that will kill them? Like I said, FUCK THEM!

All I have to say to StaggerLee is don't judge a person's life who you know nothing about. OD'ing isn't just some "stupid choice" that "stupid people" make. You don't know why these people turned to drugs, you don't know what their heads are like, you don't know the troubles they went through. So in short, you don't know shit.

So if life isn't going great for you and if things are shitty, then it's ok to do drugs ? And to do drugs when you have children to take care of ?

If things are so bad, give the kids to a family member until you can get help.

If you refuse to try to get help and continue to abuse drugs, I would like to say that you deserve anything that happens to you.........but that would be totally unfair to the children.

This is what I do know, The stupid fuckers, for whatever reason, made a choice to shoot drugs, and possibly mix them with Oxycontin, while they had thier children in the house with them. For whatever reason, it doesnt matter. They have a hard life? So do a lot of people, and they dont all OD with thier kids in the house.

The end result, is, they were irresponsible parents, and irresponsible humans. The reason or the "how it happened" to me, doesnt matter. I dont care about why they decided it was a good idea to take so many drugs that it killed them, that, to me is a bullshit cop out. They had a hard life? To bad so sad. Lots of people have bad lives and dont OD and leave thier kids alone in the world.
