– 7% WWE Talent On hGH & hCG
During a recent appearance on the Matt Riviera Show, Dave Palumbo (who is Triple H’s nutritionist) revealed loopholes in WWE’s Wellness Policy. He noted that WWE wrestlers are allowed to take hormones (getting a prescription from a doctor) and it can be Human Growth Hormone (HGH) as well:
“The good thing about wrestling is that because it’s not a professional sport per se, more entertainment, they are allowed to take hormone replacement. So they can go to HRT places, they can get testosterone – 100 mg a week, whatever they prescribe nowadays – they can get hCG, they can do hGH if they want.
Those are acceptable, and a lot of the wrestlers do do it. It’s not for me to say who’s using what, but they’re very minimal doses.”
WWE then issued a statement that hGH & hCG are on the list of banned substances in the WWE Wellness Policy, but approximately 7% WWE talent are on these substances due to various medical conditions.
– Discussion On Neville Making More Money On The Indys, Finn Balor Being Positioned Ahead Of Neville
During a recent edition of “The Brand” podcast, Vince Russo, Glenn Gilbertti (WCW’s Disco Inferno) & Jeff Lane (co-host) discussed Neville quitting WWE. Below is their conversation:
Jeff: Well the other big possible WWE release – Neville is rumored to have quit, walked out at Raw. Neville hasn’t spoke. There’s no definitive answer out there. But all these reports and the rumor is that he was scheduled to lose to Enzo in the main event, so he ended up walking.
And then what they did was they made a last-minute decision to put Kalisto there because nobody could come up with a better idea. So they just put the Title on Kalisto. So who knows if any of this is true, but the rumor seems to be out there that Neville walked at Raw.
Glenn: I’ll say that’s a mistake. I mean where is he gonna make as much money he’s making there?
Russo: I think he can. I think Neville’s one of those guys. I really like the guy. He is great with ring work. He’s good on the mic. He’s what we would call a five-tool player. I don’t think this guy’s gonna have any problem making money.
How they positioned Finn Balor ahead of Neville? Neville is two times better than Finn Balor. I think he’s one of those guys that’s gonna have no problem whatsoever making money independently.

However, that’s not the case. Pro Wrestling Sheet is reporting that Nia has been granted a leave of absence for some private matter.
