AEW is opening their doors in a big way and this Saturday will see a lot of hard work pay off with Double Or Nothing. The company obviously wants to provide a very safe environment for pro wrestling as well, especially for their workers.

WWE has a very famous “Wellness Policy” and while it isn’t 100% detailed, the Wrestling Observer Newsletter confirmed that AEW will also initiate drug testing procedures on their stars.

I don’t know the details but the full-time contracts the talent signed does include a drug testing provision and there are plans to implement a drug testing program

It was noted that “full-time contracts” will be drug tested. It wasn’t noted if drug tests will be random, but they will have a “program.”

This also leaves the subject open for questioning when it comes to part-time performers, but The Young Bucks, Kenny Omega, and Cody Rhodes have been very outspoken in the past about being drug-free. So it wouldn’t be surprising to see them take steps to ensure that the AEW culture maintains that same mindset.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
