"Well we all know WWE is a publicly traded company. They claim to possess some of the most stringent testing requirements for their athletes. However, the harsh reality is I regret to inform everyone that those kind of physiques are never attainable without drugs," said Rodriguez. "You can't walk around 250 plus pounds with four percent body fat without using substances," he added. 

Rodriguez said in the interview that athletes and action stars are misleading their fans because they want to be role models. He also talked about other alleged clients of his. He and Bravo have been working together to release the names and more information as they put together the documentary. They both said they will speak more about Reigns in the future.
