On Monday, September 3, 2007 at 8:09 PM EST WWE star Batista has issued the following statement on his official website, www.demon-wrestling.com, denying a report by ESPN about his involvement with Signature Pharmacy:
"To my fans and friends:
I categorically deny a report on ESPN.com, and repeated by other media outlets, that I am or ever have been a customer of Signature Pharmacy of Orlando, an on-line pharmacy company that is a target of an investigation by the Albany, New York District Attorney's Office.
I am being tested regularly by the WWE, and I am in full compliance with the WWE Wellness Program.
I regret the inaccurate reporting, and I will do all I can in the future to stop any publication or anyone from making such false accusations."
