WWE Wil Not Punish Lesnar For Failed Drug Test

(WWE Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar)

TMZ.com is reporting that a representative from WWE has confirmed to the celebrity gossip website that former WWE World Champion Brock Lesnar will not be disciplined by the company for his two failed drug tests stemming from his UFC 200 fight againstMark Hunt.

The reasoning that the representative gave is that Lesnar is essentially exempt from the WWE Wellness Policy doe to the fact that he does not perform for the company on a full-time basis. The WWE spokesperson was quoted as stating the following:

“WWE’s talent wellness program does not apply to part-time performers such as Brock Lesnar.”

Due to this, Lesnar will definitely still be appearing at August’s SummerSlam event to face Randy Orton.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
