WWE Cardiologist Bryan Donohue Takes Down His Beta Website Home Pages

[posted 1/5/11 to]

I’ve been criticizing World Wrestling Entertainment’s consulting cardiologist, Dr. Bryan Donohue, who is also the chief of cardiology at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center’s Shadyside Hospital.

I question his outside investment in and undisclosed hype on behalf of a supplement company, and wonder where that fits in with UPMC’s vaunted new ethics policy.

I also wonder if WWE cardio screening was asleep at the switch with Eddie “Umaga” Fatu, who died of an enlarged heart at age 36.

Earlier today I posted links to Dr. Donohue’s draft website home pages, which highlight his association with the supplement company, Vinomis Labs, and its flagship product, the resveratrol supplement Vindure. These beta pages, labeled “Sample 1,” “Sample 2,” and “Sample 3,” have been up for a year.

Now Donohue has taken the pages down. When you go to, you get the greeting “Coming Soon!”

Those of you who want to see crude screen prints of “Sample 1,” “Sample 2,” and “Sample 3,” which were captured before Donohue deleted them, should go to,, and

The dude seems to have something against the concept of accountability.
