Former WWF champ Bruno Sammartino is saying that the death of the former ECW wrestler John Kronus(George Caiazzo) should be tied to steroid use. Sammartino said on the Nancy Grace Show on CNN Headline News that John Kronus was a well-known steroid user and had used other drugs before his death.
Bryan Alvarez of the Wrestling Observer and Figure Four Wrestling closed the Grace show with his thoughts on the Chris Benoit murder crime scene. Alvarez said, “Chris Benoit destroyed a lot of stuff right prior to his suicide-notes, diaries, et cetera. He did not destroy the steroids, and I think there is a reason for that.”
John Kronus began his wrestling career in the early 1990’s working for $40.00 a week teamming with Perry Saturn in the USWA run by promoter Jerry Lawler.
