Slam Wrestling is featuring an interview with indy wrestler Devon Nicholson who talks about losing out on a deal with WWE after it was discovered that he had Hepatitis C.
“The first WWE doctor said because of their no-blood policy, it wouldn’t be a problem. The second doctor thought it might be a problem. And Joe Maroon called me a week after the tests. My liver enzymes were high and he told me I had Hep C for sure. I asked if I would still get hired and he said it was unlikely. They said it wasn’t a medical issue, it was a licensing issue. I couldn’t be licensed to wrestle in certain states.”
