• Ryback Opens Up About Lack Of Privacy During WWE’s Drug Testing

During a recent edition of Conversations With The Big Guy podcast, former WWE Superstar Ryback opened up about WWE’s drug testing and the lack of privacy involved in it.

Below is what Ryback said:

“It’s a cover by WWE to protect themselves. It wasn’t an enjoyable process, but it is what it is, you know what you signed up for when you go there and do it. But as far as I know, that’s what it is.

But it got that strict because of those dip-sh*ts in FCW before, the dumbasses that were using the fake penises, where before you can just go into the stall and pi$$ and you had privacy but then those guys doing their pro-hormones and all that dumb sh*t before they got signed when they were up there and then they got busted and so from here on out you have to show your t!ts and pull your pants down to your ankles.

I’m all for drug testing to prove that people aren’t cheating. I wish there was a cooler way to do it but there’s not.

As far as the women, I think they have to keep the stall door open if I’m not mistaken. They have to see you giving the sample now. It is what it is because of the people in FCW.

It’s not something that happened just in wrestling, that was something in other things where people were selling devices to try and get away with drug testing. I’ve heard of things where there are loopholes and what not where they’ll sign guys that come back and they don’t sign the regular contracts where they’re not subjected to testing.

As far as I know nothing has probably changed on that. It was all through a third-party, Aegis, they’re working with WWE where it was always multiple times a year that they showed up.

Every once in a blue moon on a live event, like on a Friday, but typically they would be there on a Monday or a Tuesday. You get to the building, Mark Carrano has his coral of WWE referees, they always tell you that you have to go see Mark Carrano because the drug testers are here in which I would always say that I was going to eat first because you get to the building after working out and you go and get some food.

They try to get you in there really quickly and they corral you into the Talent Relations and you all sit down in a big group in there and you are drinking water until you have to pi$$, eventually, after I was there I would do my own thing.

I would get there and I would eat and unpack, get situated, drink some water so when I went in there I already had to pi$$.

You get it; you get your ID, they do the whole check deal, the paperwork and then you go to the bathroom and you pull your pants down to your ankles and you lift your shirt up and show the guy your t*ts, show him your d*ck and then you pi$$ right in front of him.

It is really an annoying process in the grand scheme of things.”
