Most professional wrestlers look super-human. They look like comic book characters or characters from a Marvel movie.

It’s part of the attraction to kids watching wrestling — they seem out of this world in their physiques and strength.

Have you ever wondered how they gain these physiques?

Former WWE star, The Undertaker, spoke out about the culture of pro-wrestlers using steroids, saying that there was a lot of pressure on the performers to look as huge and ripped as possible.
