Primo Colon Disputes That He Failed WWE’s Drug Test
It was announced recently that Primo Colon had been suspended by WWE for 30 days. This is because WWE says that he failed their wellness policy.
In a recent interview, Primo disputes that he failed a drug test and wants to clear things up.
Primo says that he was really suspended by WWE for not being present for a drug test. This is because he is in Puerto Rico and hasn’t wrestled for the company in several months. Primo says that he didn’t want to travel back to the United States just to have a test done.
Here is what he said (via a rough translation):
“I was not on the road (on tour with the company), I was not scheduled for any event in the near future. I am in Puerto Rico when they call me suddenly, not to use me, but to travel for a doping test. I was ready to do it, but I told them that I was in Puerto Rico and that I was willing to go to a place (laboratory) that they chose to test me without any problem, without any discomfort. I was not going to pay for a trip to just get tested for doping, ”
“There I didn’t hear anything from the company about it and I thought they were going to call me when they found a place to do the test. Almost two months pass and I get the letter that I am suspended, according to them, because I refused to take the test. And that is not correct. They took it as I was out of the country, but I was available, ”
“I don’t want them to say that I failed to test positive because that is totally false and incorrect. They usually do their doping test at events, someone appears to collect the urine of fighters, employees, referees … to do their evaluation once a month. I did not say anything positive. I was in Puerto Rico. I have to clarify it because my reputation is worth more than any check.
