Backstage News On Marijuana Use In WWE

Ryan Clark

According to the Pro Wrestling Torch Newsletter, WWE management does, to a degree, look down upon young wrestlers who â<80><9c>overindulgeâ<80> in a marijuana habit.

The company believes that marijuana could factor into a wrestlerâ<80><99>s lack of desire to get ahead. If a wrestler who has a reputation for a lack of passion also smokes marijuana, he will likely be viewed as a â<80><9c>potheadâ<80>â<80>“management will likely refrain from giving him a push until he kicks (or hides) the habit.

The same does not apply to marijuana use by veteran WWE wrestlers. WWE accepts the notion that such wrestlers have proven their commitment to success and, consequently, have â<80><9c>earned the rightâ<80> to indulge.

Under its wellness policy, WWE does not formally test for marijuana use.
