Lesnar not subject to drug testing in WWE

July 28, 2016

Brock Lesnar will not receive a punishment from WWE for his two flagged drug tests from USADA.

TMZ Sports reported that “only full-time WWE performers are subject to the organization’s wellness policy, which prohibits PEDs.”  Since Lesnar is not categorized as full-time, he is not subject to testing.  Lesnar is scheduled to make his return to WWE on August 21st as part of Summerslam, the second-biggest event of the WWE’s year.

Dave Meltzer also confirmed on his podcast today that Lesnar was not subject to testing in the WWE.

Payout Perspective:

On a day in which the WWE announced its second quarter earnings, no one asked about Lesnar.  Certainly, the news about the WWE’s drug testing policy is interesting and peels back an unknown.  The UFC may have known about this loophole in the Wellness Policy since it stringently tested Lesnar leading up to UFC 200.  Of course, the flagged tests show that it did not work.  Will there be any backlash for the WWE?  Lesnar will still need to deal with USADA and the Nevada State Athletic Commission in the coming weeks and months.
