Ryback shares his thoughts on WWE’s recent wellness policy violations and even an interesting tidbit from when he wrestled for the company.
On a recent episode of “Shooting Blanks Wrestling Report With Raj Giri,” Ryback spoke about the recent suspensions issued out to the likes of Samoa Joe, Robert Roode and Andrade for violating WWE’s wellness policy. While wondering what they tested positive for, Ryback said wrestlers would test positive for cocaine, at least when he wrestled for WWE years ago.
“I’m really curious for what they are popping for. I’m really curious because I know the way things work with guys up there. If one of the guys finds a new “supplement” that isn’t tested and everyone’s in better shape, then it spreads like wildfire. Is it cocaine? I remember when I was there, some of the guys would pop for cocaine sometimes and I’ve never done it once in my life, but you’re wrestling, you go out and party, use some cocaine. It happens. Is that what people are popping for? I don’t know,” Ryback said.
