• WWE Reportedly Didn’t Suspend 2 Wrestlers Who Intentionally Failed Drug Tests To Get Released
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, there are two wrestlers in WWE who intentionally failed drug tests to get released from WWE, but it didn’t work.
Below is what Meltzer said on Wrestling Observer Radio:
“I know of two people that have attempted that. One who actually strongly attempted that. One didn’t attempt that, that’s not the right word. I know one guy who was going to do that and I suggested that it would be a waste of time because it won’t work and another guy who did that and it was a waste of time and it didn’t work.
Two guys have come to me with the suggestion and I told them it wouldn’t work. WWE’s wise to it and they’re not gonna fire you when they know that’s your gimmick, so that’s the deal.
They’re not gonna fire you unless they want you to go.”
