WWE suspended Primo Colon and Robert Roode for failing Wellness Policy tests. Colon was never on television, but a TLC storyline was scrapped due to Roode’s infraction.
Dave Meltzer discussed these surprising WWE Superstar suspensions during Wrestling Observer Radio. He gathered that WWE could have known about these impending suspensions for quite a while.
“You know I know guys who they announced it and suspended them months after [failing the drug test] — I won’t say months, but six weeks. I know of one guy who failed a test six weeks and wasn’t told about it for six weeks because they — whatever they’re going to suspend them when they get around to suspending them. It’s not like it’s gonna be the next day.”
WWE did stage an injury angle for Robert Roode a couple of weeks ago. Bryan Alvarez seemed to think that they didn’t know about his drug test failure at that time. We might never know, but Roode won’t be wrestling for the rest of the year due to popping dirty on a drug test.
