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.

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.”
