The following information comes for the Wrestling Observer Newsletter:

– Vince McMahon stated in an interview with the Orlando Sentinel that 30 performers have been suspended since the Wellness Policy started in February 2006. 11 of the 30 suspensions came from people who slipped through. In other words, 11 of the suspensions came for the government investigation of Signature Pharmacy, not from drug test failures.

– Randy Orton, the current WWE champion, was still allegedly receiving packages from Signature Pharmacy after failing a test and being suspended, and then was protected from another suspension for reasons that can only be speculated on.

– In terms of Chris Benoit’s testosterone/epitestosterone ratio at the time of his death, it would be the third highest t/e ratio ever tested in the state on Nevada.

– There has been 60 drug test failures in all
