Ongoing Backstage Drug Talk, The Divas & Drugs Update

Discussions are ongoing about how to incorporate drug testing with developmental talent. WWE pretty much only tests contracted talent at WWE events, particularly SuperShows when everyone on the main roster is available. Developmental talent do get tested, but presumably not that frequently. The only developmental wrestler known to fail a Wellness test was Ryan Reeves, who was released earlier in the year.

As reported earlier, a number of WWE sources were reportedly surprised that no female WWE performers turned up on the Signature Pharmacy client list. The reason for this is because it is believed that the federal prosecutors only looked up male wrestlers from the active WWE roster for the most part. It is also believed that they didn’t look up people on the current TNA roster, although if a major name turned up, they would have recognized the person.

Anyway, prosecutors likely didn’t check the names on any girls, not realizing that at least a few of them reportedly use Growth Hormone to keep their bodies looking the way they do, particularly in the case of women entering their late 20s and the ones maintaining their near flawless figures well into their 30s. It is believed that a few of the divas use steroids to tighten and harden their figure without building unneeded mass mass, in addition to keeping their weight down. The drug Clenbuterol is said to be a favorite among a few of the WWE Divas. As of fall, 2006, Clenbuterol is not an ingredient of any therapeutic drug approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, but is still used as an unproven slimming aid, and is now banned for IOC-tested athletes.

Torrie Wilson & Victoria have obviously denied these claims because they still work for the company, but hey, so did Mr. Kennedy and look where he is now.
