WWE’s Wellness Policy has caught several wrestlers the last few months, including Samoa Joe, Andrade, and Robert Roode showing WWE are taking the policy seriously again, having not had any failures since 2016.
Ryback would discuss the policy on his Shooting Blanks Wrestling Report podcast, saying that the policy has holes in it and call out the time taken between failure in suspension, potentially referring to Samoa Joe’s suspension, which seemingly took three weeks to be announced.
Ryback would comment on this saying:
Ryback would also shockingly share the fact that when he was with the company some referees would warn the wrestlers about upcoming tests seemingly allowing them time to take steps to not fail.
Ryback would add that not all PED’s were just for making wrestlers look better.
Ryback himself did fail a Wellness test himself back in 2006 while wrestling for part of WWE’s developmental associated Ohio Valley Wrestling promotion. The failure was for taking over the counter bodybuilding supplements that were eventually removed from sale due to this effect. Despite this his strike was not removed.
