Hulk Hogan Admits Steroid Use

July 14, 1994

The wrestling superstar Hulk Hogan admits to abusing steroids since 1976 in order to gain size, but claimed he had stopped in 1994 when he joined the World Championship Wrestling (WCW). This was during the trial of Vince McMahon relating to the use of steroids in wrestling. Hogan claimed that McMahon had neither sold him the drugs nor ordered him to take them. McMahon was eventually found not guilty. Hogan was given immunity for his testimony.
