• WWE Has Changed Their Policy On Drug Test Failure
WWE’s previous rule on Wellness Policy (Drug Test) failure was the following:
– 1st Drug Test Failure: 30 day suspension with pay deducted from their downside guarantee on a weekly basis. Wrestler’s name will also be revealed publicly.
– 2nd Drug Test Failure: 60 day suspension with pay deducted from their downside guarantee on a weekly basis. Wrestler’s name will also be revealed publicly.
– 3rd Drug Test Failure: Wrestler’s contract will be terminated.
According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE has now changed this policy, as WWE no longer publicly announces the names and a 3rd drug test failure won’t result in them getting fired:
“They’ve changed that rule. It’s because a couple of key people have had two suspensions and we’re in a wrestling war.
Plus, somebody with two violations could intentionally fail a test to get out of their contract.”
It should be noted that WWE doesn’t test for Alcohol & Marijuana.
