Report: WWE Set To Suspend More Superstars For Wellness Policy Violations

Troubled times possibly ahead...

WWE did not have a wellness policy violation for over three years after Paige was suspended for 60 days in October 2016. However, the company has gone through a recent glut of suspensions since December 2019. Robert Roode and Primo Colon were both suspended for 30 days on December 10, and then Andrade was written off TV for a month on last week's episode of Monday Night Raw as he began his own 30-day suspension.

Now, according to WrestleVotes, WWE are set to suspend more talent for violating the company's policy. They tweeted: "Word coming out of RAW is that more suspensions are coming. Must be something in that Southern California water (hint hint). Working to confirm details."

Initial reports suggested that Samoa Joe was the rumoured Southern California resident but both Tom Colohue of Sportskeeda and Sean Ross Sapp at Fightful have reached out to WWE and confirmed that The Samoan Submission Machine has not been suspended.

Sapp tweeted: "In regards to the rumors of possible suspensions coming in WWE, top staff within the company have vehemently denied to http://Fightful.com and http://FightfulSelect.com that Samoa Joe is suspended."

Colohue also noted that the possible reason for the increase in suspensions is because the company are doing more random and more thorough drug tests. WWE was previously worried about alienating their Superstars with the tests but they are no longer concerned with how their talent feel about them.

Colohue wrote on Twitter: "To be clear, WrestleVotes have not stated that Samoa Joe has been suspended. To my knowledge, he has not. #WWE are doing more random and thorough checking right now. That's for sure. They're a lot less worried about alienating talent than they were a year ago."
