Nancy Grace under fire for coverage of Ultimate Warrior's death

@NancyGraceHLN

Because she immediately went for the steroid angle.

Ultimate Warrior was a big enough star in his time, and a polarizing enough figure, that when he died on Tues., April 8, 2014, of what is apparently being described as a "catastrophic medical event" (a full autopsy is being done today), it was covered by news outlets everywhere.

That includes Nancy Grace, who brought Diamond Dallas Page on her program on HLN and grilled him about Warrior's death while repeatedly mentioning that there are "claims of drug use and steroids swirling as Ultimate DROPS DEAD".

Here's video:

Because she's accusatory from the outset and proceeds to come at the issue from one angle, that of drug and steroid abuse, she's under heavy fire from those within the pro wrestling industry. DDP did his best to defend the pro wrestling position on the show and others have taken to Twitter to get their licks in on Nancy's coverage, Cody Rhodes chief among them.

Expect more to weigh in.
