One of the biggest scandals the WWE had to struggle with was when in 1993, McMahon was charged by the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York with routinely obtaining anabolic steroids for his wrestlers and employing a Pennsylvania urologist to administer them with drugs at the WWF headquarters at "Titan Tower" in Stamford, Connecticut.

This resulted in him temporarily ceding control of the WWF to his wife Linda. It is no secret that most wrestlers were using the drug to enhance their physiques at the time.

Hulk Hogan even testified against McMahon by admitting he got the drugs from his boss. WWE had been trying to clear up their image since then and would love for the fans to forget that the Steroid Scandal even happened.

The most recent case of steroid abuse came when Roman Reigns was supposedly linked to a $10 million steroid ring.
