WWE: Update on Randy Orton’s Suspension

The Mexican wrestling magazine, Super Luchas Magazine, is reporting that Randy Orton’s 60-day suspension from the WWE this past Wednesday for his second Wellness Policy violation came as a result of Orton testing positive for Dianabol (an orally-effective anabolic steroid). Dianabol used to be the steroid of choice for several bodybuilders until Congress banned it in 1970 as a part of the Controlled Substances Act.

It’s also being reported that Orton actually underwent two drug tests with Orton testing positive for marijuana on the first test and the¬†aforementioned Dianabol on the second test. However, testing positive for marijuana is not currently an offense that renders a suspension in the WWE as those testing positive are fined $2,500, which Orton was fined for.

Randy Orton has a history of smoking marijuana as the nine-time World Champion was caught smoking it back in 2006 and he was suspended for 60 days for “unprofessional conduct” (though this suspension was not “counted” as a Wellness Policy violation). As previously reported, if Orton has one more Wellness Policy violation, he will be released from his WWE contract.
