Hawk and Animal both gone. It won't say "steroids" on Animal's death certificate, just as it didn't say "steroids" on Randy Savage's, Eddie Guerrero's, the Ultimate Warrior's or any number of other wrestlers'. But if Animal died of a heart attack, common sense tells you that steroids contributed to it.

Plus steroids has long-time consequences. Eddie was straight when he died, but the years of abuse had destroyed his heart.

Steroids haven't killed Arnold, but he's had two heart surgeries. He blamed that on a "congenital condition," but he's a congenital liar.

Well hawk did more than roids . Im not sure if you watched it but vice on YouTube does a series called darkside of the ring. They did a episode for legion of doom. Animal was saying hawk partied a lot even with yakuza in japan. Its s awesome series theres 2 seasons. The owen hart and Chris benoit episodes are depressing as hell

Sayers and his teammate Brian Piccolo were the subjects of a very good TV movie, Brian's Song. Check it out if you get a chance.
