WWE suspends 10 performers


Recommended Posts

From CNN Website:

 

Any more news about this topic, and who got suspended..?

 

---------------------------------------------------

 

World Wrestling Entertainment has suspended 10 performers for violations of a policy that requires drug tests, the company said Thursday.

 

Stamford-based WWE says it issued suspension notices based on independent information received from investigators from the Albany County New York District Attorney's Office.

 

WWE spokeswoman Jennifer McIntosh would not identify the performers or specify how they violated the policy. She referred other questions to the district attorney's office, where a message seeking comment was left.

 

Under the wellness policy, which requires tests for steroids and other drugs, a wrestler faces a 30-day suspension for a first violation, a 60-day suspension for a second violation and firing for a third violation.

 

In June, pro wrestler Chris Benoit killed his wife and young son and hanged himself. Investigators say Benoit had a steroid and other drugs in his system at the time.

 

Earlier this month, WWE officials met with New York prosecutors investigating illegal steroid sales.

 

At the time, McIntosh confirmed the meeting but declined to comment on what was discussed.

Funny, I would have thought that all of them were probably on steroids, maybe they are the ones who actually got caught.

 

Wonder how many more scandals WWE can handle before it all ends.
