Some of the by products of steroid abuse is anger or as some call it “Roid Rage”, also abnormally large muscular size that denotes the use of such chemicals. Heart problems are another common result of steroid abuse if you look at a list of professional wrestling deaths you would see that there are more than half the list is from heart related problems and from drug overdose.
