All of the allegations set forth in a recent SI.com article mentioning WWE predate the initiation of WWEâ<80><99>s current Talent Wellness Program. This WWE program prohibits the use of performance enhancing drugs, as well as other prescription drugs which can be abused, if taken for other than a legitimate medical purpose pursuant to a valid prescription from a licensed and treating physician. For purposes of WWE’s policy, prescriptions obtained over the Internet and/or from suppliers of prescription drugs from the Internet are not considered to have been given for a legitimate medical purpose.
NOTE FROM ME: This is true, the Wellness Policy was put into effect after these alleged transactions occurred. In a odd note, TNA has not issued any statements concerning Kurt Angle’s alleged involvement.
In all honesty, there will be very little if any anger from WWE fans over this. To be honest, I am more concerned for the long term health of the guys named as abuse of steroids leads to long term health issues including heart failure. I do sincerely hope the guys named concern themselves with their health more than being named in this, as the customers are not being charged with any crimes and can probably avoid prosecution if they agree to testify if necessary.
