• Roman Reigns Issues Statement Regarding Steroid Allegations

As we noted before, former Iron Addicts Gym owner Richard Rodriguez (owner of Wellness Fitness Nutrition LLC) recently talked about the raid that took place in his Miami-based gym for Steroid distribution & production.

He went on to claim that some celebrities were clients of this dealer, including actors Mark Wahlberg and Josh Duhamel. Another name that he claimed was a client is top WWE star Roman Reigns.

Below is what he said:

“At the end I’m just trying to clear my name and just make people well aware, there’s a lot more people out there that were involved and are associated with my company that many individuals did not know. One of them in particular is a very famous wrestler by the name of Roman Reigns.

He was originally introduced to me by one of the informants [laughs]. I’ve probably heard his name in the past due to numerous videos that Jonny Bravo has done, and also some including myself on my own channel.

Reigns is a very down to earth person, however, a situation involved in which… often times when you’re brought to trials – which I was not, I decided to take a plea – however, they disclose discovery. Discovery is basically the proof that they have against you.

One thing, one part of the discovery is what’s called tried and true statements, which is basically disclosing everybody whom the investigators or people that were investigating you have spoken to with regards to your company, with regards to you, with regards to any other co-defendants that are associated with the indictment. So, that’s one of the reasons why I disclosed him.”

You can hear his comments in the video below:

Below is the statement that “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns issued regarding this:

“I have never heard of Richard Rodriguez or Wellness Fitness Nutrition. I learned from the mistake I made nearly two years ago and paid the penalty for it. Since then, I’ve passed 11 tests as part of WWE’s independent drug testing program.”
