Brock Lesnar

Current WWE star Brock Lesnar, who failed both out-of-competition and in-competition drug tests after UFC 200, may only face a maximum one-year suspension according to the policy of USADA (United States Anti-Doping Agency).

According to a report by Ariel Helwani of MMAfighting.com, the substance that Lesnar tested positive for twice – Hydroxy-clomiphene (an anti-estrogen agent) – is considered “specified substances” under the World Anti-Doping Agency Code.

Per the policy, “there is a greater likelihood that these (specified) substances could be susceptible to a credible non-doping explanation.” The policy also recognizes the possibility of a prohibited substance entering an athlete’s body inadvertently.

USADA has yet to officially announce the kind of sanction it will take against Lesnar. Lesnar does still face suspensions and fines from the Nevada State Athletic Commission, who temporarily suspended Lesnar. He may also be stripped of his win at UFC 200.

WWE revealed in an official statement back on July that the company would not be suspending Lesnar for his USADA violations as the current WWE talent wellness policy didn’t apply to “part-time performers.”

  1. This isn’t new from WWE. Look at when they brought in RVD the last time. He was exempt from the wellness policy as well since he was on a part-time contract and the weed he was smoking wasn’t a worry as he wasn’t signed full time.

  2. So Lesnar is exempt from WWE’s drug testing….. smh. Way to go WWE on your double standards. Shouldn’t matter if you’re a part time or a full time wrestler… if you get in the ring and perform, you should be subjected to the testing like everyone else. Same goes for TNA, ROH, etc…. if they even have drug testing in those companies.

  3. Right! Go ask Randy Orton. If a “part timer” screws up in the ring, their opponent doesn’t get partly hurt. Was Roid Lesnar juiced up on something at SummerSlam? Who knows and apparently those WWE hypocrites don’t care.

  4. go on YouTube and check out “Bob Holly Shoots on WWE’s Wellness Policy”…. he is spot on with his comments
