Furious wrestling fans rally to #CancelNancyGrace after Warrior segment

What is it today that has people calling for Nancy Grace’s show to be canceled? Ask Diamond Dallas Page, who appeared on her show Wednesday night expecting to talk about the life of the late Ultimate Warrior and instead found himself defending all of professional wrestling against charges of drug use while a list of wrestlers who have died young scrolled by.

I went on Nancy Grace last night expecting to discuss Warrior the man. Had I known the only topic discussed would be steroids I would not have participated. At the time I was also unaware of the list that was shown to the viewing audience. To imply that all of the wrestlers on that list died from steroids was wrong and for that they owe the families an apology. Again, my only intention was to discuss Warrior the man and share some stories about how dedicated he was to the wrestling business. I am saddened that was not what happened and my thoughts remain with his family.

Smith Hart (unverified account) made a similar statement on Facebook.

I think our beloved sister-in-law Martha as well as my entire family should be tremendously offended by the implication of Nancy Grace that my brother Owens demise had anything to do with drugs or steroids. For her to attempt to capitalize on Warrior’s death while his family grieves for personal choices he may have made more than 20 years ago is a sad to day for what passes as journalism today. Breaking news; Many rock stars snorted cocaine in the 80’s. Perhaps we should shut down the entire music industry. We should not buy into any of their such ridiculous libelous statements. We will hear official details from the coroner this weekend and not from some gossip journalist.

WWE’s Cody Rhodes blasted Grace:
