TMZ Sports is reporting that a spokesperson for WWE has informed the website that Brock Lesnar will not be suspended by the company in regards to his two potential USADA drug testing failures for both out-of-competition and in-competition testing.
WWE, in a statement, said the wellness program doesn’t apply to “part-time performers.”
“WWE’s talent wellness program does not apply to part-time performers such as Brock Lesnar.”
The TMZ Sports article notes that Lesnar only performed for WWE in an estimated 19 matches over the last three years including this year and that the wellness program is only designed to keep full-time talent healthy.
MMAFighting.com revealed in a report on Monday that Lesnar’s test results came back positive for the anti-estrogen agent hydroxy-clomiphene, a drug commonly used when getting off a steroid cycle. Mark Hunt has criticized UFC for allowing Lesnar to fight.
As announced on Monday night, Lesnar returns to WWE next week on RAW live from Atlanta in his first appearance since WrestleMania back in April and is scheduled to wrestle Randy Orton at WWE SummerSlam on August 21 in Brooklyn.
