WWE – More details on suspensions.

Sports Illustrated has posted an article online, part of their ongoing investigation of the illegal steroid business in Florida, listing what drugs WWE performers received from the pharmacy that federal agents raided this past February.  The list not only includes the substance the wrestler received, but gives dates as to when the wrestler received them.

Three of the wrestlers on the list are deceased:

– Chris Benoit, received nandrolone and anastrozole in February 2006.

– Eddie Guerrero received nadrolone, testosterone and anastrozole two weeks before passing away in November of 2005.

– Brian Adams (Crush) received nandrolone, testosterone, and somatropin in December 2006.  He was not employed by WWE at that time, and hadn’t worked for the company for several years.

One of the wrestlers on the list no longer works for WWE:

– Sylvain Grenier, who received somatropin, nandrolone, genotropin and stanozolol from February 2005 through July 2006.

The other ten wrestlers on the list are all currently employed by WWE (although some are out injured).  Remember, WWE started their Wellness Policy on February 27, 2006.

– Chavo Guerrero received somatropin, nandrolone and anastrozole from April 2005 through May 2006.

– Shane Helms received testosterone, genotropin and nandrolone from November 2003 through February 2007.

– Randy Orton received somatropin, nandrolone, stanozolol form September 2004 through February 2007.

– John Hennigan (Morrison) received somatropin, anastrozole, testosterone, stanozolol and chorionic gonadotropin from June 2006 through February 2007.

– Ken Anderson (Kennedy) received anastrozole, somatropin and testosterone from October 2006 through February 2007.

– Shoichi Funaki received somatropin in March 2006.

– Charlie Haas received anastrozole, somatropin, stanozolol, nandrolone and chorionic gonadotropin from August 2006 through January 2007.

– Edward Fatu (Umaga) received somatropin between July and December 2006.

– Darren Matthews (William Regal) received stanozolol, somatropin, genotropin and anastrozole between November 2004 and November 2006.

– Adam Copeland (Edge) received somatropin, genotropin, andstanozolol between September 2004 and February 2007.

The SI.com article also quotes WWE’s Wellness Policy, which states that WWE “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.”

WWE Suspends 10 Wrestlers.

– At this point, no names have been confirmed to be suspended by WWE. Earlier today, WWE did confirm that 10 unnamed WWE superstars had been suspended. Late this afternoon, The New York Daily News revealed several WWE superstars’ names that came up in the Albany, NY DA’s investigation into Signature Pharmacy. Here are the names that The NY Daily News revealed:

Randy Orton, Charles Haas, Adam “Edge” Copeland, Robert “Booker” Huffman, Shane Helms, Mike “Simon Dean” Bucci, Anthony “Santino Marella” Carelli, John “Morrison” Hennigan, Darren “William Regal” Matthews, Ken “Kennedy” Anderson and Chavo Guerrero.

– Later this evening, ESPN named more superstars that were clients of Signature Pharmacy. The names ESPN revealed are:

Shoichi Funaki, Dave “Batista” Bautista, Chris “Masters” Mordetsky in addition to Edge, Morrison and Helms who were previously mentioned.

– Around 7PM this evening, The New York Daily News updated its article adding Eddie “Umaga” Fatu to the list of clients for Signature Pharmacy. SI.com also issued a detailed list of WWE superstars receiving shipments of drugs which you can read here on the site.

– So far, the WWE is refusing to list of suspended names but they have confirmed they issued the suspensions based on independent information received by the Albany DA. WWE is the first organization to reprimand its employees in the Signature Pharmacy scandal. Investigators say they expect numerous stars from Major League Baseball and The NFL to emerge soon as well.

It’s obvious that this has rocked WWE to the core at a very bad time for the company as they prepare for the Congressional hearings. We will keep you up to date on any breaking information as soon as it becomes available.
