There is much debate about how much effect steroid use has on the premature deaths of professional wrestlers. As this list will be updated with causes of death, where available, it is beneficial to have some idea of the side effects of steroid use. While the true long term side effects are not fully known, it is believed that just a few of the side effects of steroid use include: heart disease, liver damage, kidney damage, cancer, strokes and blood clots, depression, thoughts of suicide, paranoia, hallucinations, severe mood swings, and ‘roid rage’ – severe, agressive behavior that may result in violence.

Though Hogan was capable of playing up to his wrestling persona in movies like Gremlins 2: The New Batc h , other roles proved trickier to master. He underwhelmed in comedies like Suburban Commando and Mr. Nanny, delivering monotone lines and forced, unfunny slapstick comedy skits before finally heading to the smaller screen. It was here that he had some limited success with the TV series Thunder In Paradise, but his onscreen career is largely remembered for a string of duds, including Santa With Muscles and Three Ninjas: High Noon On Mega Mountain .
