ESPN radio host is at it again...
- Colin Cowherd has never been quiet about his opinions of professional wrestling, particularly when they pass away. And, as TMZ reports, Cowherd was at it again on his show this morning as he said that the Ultimate Warrior's death was neither shocking nor unexpected because of the abuse that wrestlers put their bodies through.
Cowherd said, "The story behind the story is ... drugs, painkiller, HGH ... it's the roll of the dice that pro wrestling dudes with limited options not good enough to play pro sports [take]."
He compared professional wrestling to baseball, saying, "You think baseball season is long? There's is double and they don't get 4 at-bats. They're getting batted on all night."
He did not specifically call Ultimate Warrior a drug abuser, but noted that it's something that nearly all wrestlers acknowledge. You can hear a clip of the rant below:
