The level of commitment Vince McMahon has for his company has never been questioned. He’s gone above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to entertaining his fans.

There’s little doubt that the most recognizable wrestler on the entire planet is, was, and probably forever will be Hulk Hogan. At the very least, he’ll always be the George Lucas of wrestlers in terms of merchandising the hell out of his brand.

As September draws to a close I figured I’d highlight the fact that September is National Recovery Month which raises awareness about recovering from drug and alcohol addiction. Addictions that the pro wrestling industry is all too familiar with.

Pro wrestling has even tried to make public service announcements out of wrestlers’ real-life past addictions. Here’s five of them.
