As noted earlier today, Ricardo Rodriguez was suspended for 30 days after his first WWE Wellness Policy violation. Although it's currently unknown why he failed the test, there has been some speculation that it deals with fat burners. Leva Bates, a friend of Ricardo's and an independent wrestler, tweeted this morning that he was told that was the reason for the suspension. He later deleted the tweet. It should also be noted that another independent wrestler, JD Maverick, posted the following on his Facebook account on Tuesday:
“So weird that some WWE Superstars get arrested for DUI’s, pot, and other illegal activity AND don’t get suspended…yet fat burners from GNC get you 30 days? GTFO.”
Ricardo Rodriguez tweeted the following on Tuesday night:
“Silly Internet and the ignorance it bestows. La conciencia de la mente libre nos trae paz. #LiberateYourMind”
“I have 30 days to go back to my charities that I have been with years. Help the homeless the less fortunate! And more importantly luv urself”
“The moment you love yourself you will begin to love the world #acceptance”
“To the ones hating on me or the ones supporting me.. I love you all. Namaste! im happy to do my charities”
Of course, nothing is confirmed and we simply don't know the exact reason for the suspension. Stay tuned for more.
