• Lars Sullivan Apparently Made “Anxiety Attack” Excuse To Avoid WWE Wellness Test Failure

The only thing we knew regarding the Lars Sullivan situation till now was that Sullivan was scheduled to be at RAW a few weeks back, but he ended up leaving and told the WWE officials that he had an “anxiety attack” and is suffering from mental health issues.

Now, we have a lot more information regarding this situation, thanks to The Dirty Sheets.

According to The Dirty Sheets, 99% people backstage in WWE don’t believe Lars has these mental health issues as he has performed at NXT TakeOver shows (which have more attendance than RAWs). Also, Sullivan was scheduled to begin his WrestleMania 35 program with John Cena by attacking Cena in a backstage segment (where the audience wouldn’t be involved).

The real reason behind Lars leaving RAW and telling WWE officials that he’s suffering from all these issues could have something to do with the possibility of him failing WWE’s Wellness test.

According to the Dirty Sheets, all the new 6 WWE main roster wrestlers that came up from NXT were instantly added to WWE’s Wellness Policy test list.

WWE’s wellness tests are done at random on Mondays and Tuesdays backstage at RAW & SmackDown respectively and the wrestlers being tested are selected randomly. Wrestlers on the main roster are tested at least once a month (more likely twice). On the other hand, wrestlers in NXT are tested once every 3 months.

Apparently Lars Sullivan didn’t have any prior information regarding this and he went on to leave the building once he saw his name was on the list of wrestlers that were scheduled to get tested on that night.

While the WWE can’t prove that Lars Sullivan is on anything as he didn’t take the test, his anxiety attack situation isn’t believed to be true by WWE officials.

Word going on is that Lars will now return when he thinks he’s “clean” and will pass the wellness test.

This situation has cost Lars his WrestleMania 35 program with Cena, as WWE officials are now planning John Cena vs. Drew McIntyre for WrestleMania 35.
