Nearly two years ago, Roman Reigns was suspended for violating the WWE Wellness policy. At the time, Reigns’ suspension was linked to Adderall, but in recent weeks, he’s been named by a jailed steroid distributor as a former client.
On Wednesday, Reigns released a statement to Pro Wrestling Sheet:
“I have never heard of Richard Rodriguez or Wellness Fitness Nutrition. I learned from the mistake I made nearly two years ago and paid the penalty for it. Since then, I’ve passed 11 tests as part of WWE’s independent drug testing program.”
Reigns, the current Intercontinental champion, is slated to defend his title against the Miz on Monday Night Raw’s 25th anniversary show Monday evening.
Reigns is a former three-time WWE champion, United States champion and tag team champion.
