WWE Survivor Series main eventer fails drug test
Via WWE's corporate Web site:
In accordance with the Talent Wellness Program, WWE (NYSE:WWE) has suspended Ron Killings (R-Truth) for 30 days effective immediately for his first violation of the company’s policy.
How convenient is it that R-Truth was suspended right after his Survivor Series tag team match with Miz, John Cena, and The Rock?
Not to jump to conclusions, but WrestlingObserver.com's Dave Meltzer reported a little while ago a WWE main eventer was also seen smoking spice (synthetic marijuana) at a party. It was the same party where WWE Tag Team Champion Evan Bourne smoked and he was eventually busted by Wellness. This could be the reason Bourne was pissed about his suspension, as he hinted via Twitter that there was a double standard.
In this case, R-Truth got got--just at WWE's convenience and not right after his supposed failure. Who knows whether R-Truth knew of his failure or not. I'm a drug-free person to the point where I don't drink, but I find it odd fake Mary Jane gets you suspended and the real thing results in a $2,500 fine sans public humiliation. Guess those two should've picked the lesser of two evils. Either way, more proof the WWE Wellness Policy sucks for lower card guys and is faulty when it comes to the upper tier of superstars. R-Truth was written out of the storylines after last night's breakup angle with The Miz.
It was fun while it lasted, Little Jimmy.
Even though Awesome Truth were destroyed every week, I kinda wish they gave R-Truth's main event slot to someone else. It's not like his absence would have made a dent in PPV buys anyway. Go figure.
