    Wtf did this guy do!? Eat a loaded burrito?..

  • The huntress in the night

    Wellness program.. 99% of the time illegal drug use, or lack of prescription for drugs in their system. So picky about that now.

    • allan mccann

      ya its mostly heavy prescription drugs, which like how many wrestlers have died of drug use….i think there doing it right. but i dont think they should care about weed its never harmed anyone by using it and some guys just need it. alot better then painkillers and ending up like shane douglas lol oh my leg fell asleep..well better take some pills..lol

  • Jay

    Great job by the WWE on trying to clean up the drug mess

  • Josh Cervera

    It was probably just weed.

    • Carter Williams

      Pretty sure the policy on weed is still just a fine and no suspension otherwise Swagger would be gone for 60 days or fired (he’s already violated the policy at least once if my memory is correct) since when he got busted for his DUI he had a possession charge too.

      • Josh Cervera

        Good point..

      • Louisa Baton

        They only call it when you aren’t drawing or Rob would have floated out of three promotions lol.

    • Louisa Baton

      It was but you still can’t do it lol.

  • Ralph Ramos

    What a joke. They suspend someone that’s not really a performer for popping diet pills, yet guys that obviously do abuse performance enhancing drugs and are built like a bull don’t even get as much as a slap in the wrist.

  • Jay

    Was last night the end of Rodriguez.It felt like they embarresed him and will fire him just like they did with Hurricane Helms
