WWE: Tough Enough Winner Suspended for Wellness Violation

Following yesterday’s news that longtime WWE referee Mike Chioda was suspended for 30 days for his first WWE Wellness Policy violation, it has been revealed that the winner of Tough Enough and current FCW (WWE developmental) talent Andy Leavine has also failed a drug test, subsequently getting suspended for 30 days for his first violation of the WWE Wellness Policy. Leavine has made only one television appearance since he was announced as the winner of Tough Enough in June, though a few vignettes about Leavine’s background were shown on RAW and SmackDown after his win. This contradicts what Leavine said throughout the run of Tough Enough as the winner of the series stated on a couple of occasions that he is/was “straightedge” (does not drink, smoke, or do drugs). Both Andy Leavine and referee Mike Chioda will be allowed to return to action after September 14.

Speaking of suspensions and Wellness Policy violations, today (Wednesday, August 17) is the last day of the original Sin Cara’s (Luis Alvirde, the talent formerly known as Mistico) 30 day suspension for his violation last month. This week’s SmackDown was already taped on Tuesday, so the earliest that the original Sin Cara can be seen on SmackDown will be next week (though he may not return for several weeks).
