along with the lack of any sort of substance abuse testing programs.
Not accurate.  The WWE has a drug policy and depending on who you believe, talent is tested pretty regularly.  In addition, they offer rehab assistance to anyone that has ever worked for them.  They also have concussion protocols in place as well.  They just "forced" one of their most popular performers into retirement due to brain injury.

Hopefully, these premature deaths will lessen in the next 10 years or so.

The WWE drug testing is shoddy at best... the lower paid talent are tested regularly and suspended, but big moneymakers (your John Cenas, Triple Hs, Undertakers) are rarely tested, if ever.

I'm sure the deaths will drop in the future though, as this generation is contempt with playing video games in hotels after wrestling shows, not snorting cocaine and partying in bars all night

At least two local radio stations are playing nothing but Prince this AM (one went "all-Prince" at about 11am yesterday).

Sirius/XM had a Prince Tribute channel up by yesterday evening!  Channel 50 if you are interested.
Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!
