  2. AHC - Normalise steroid usage in regular society

    Steroids and other PEDs are looked down on by society and outlawed in fitness and sports (even if people get caught doping all the time).

  6. WI: Tommy Dreamer goes out with his plans to kill Paul Heyman, then himself, live at WrestleMania.

    Tommy Dreamer, no joke, admitted he planned to do this. This wasn't a joke by him, he genuinely could've done it. The reason I kept this out of the fandom thread was that, well, not only is this a WI but it also would've definitely affected how the country would see sports entertainment.
