Jim Ross Weighs In on Lesnar’s Failed Drug Test

Jim Ross

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has posted a blog on his official website, with one of the topics being WWE not taking any disciplinary action against Brock Lesnar in regards to his two UFC drug test failures stemming from his UFC 200 fight against Mark Hunt. As previously reported, a WWE representative was quoted as stating to celebrity gossip website TMZ.com that Lesnar would not be disciplined because since he is a part-time performer for the company, he is exempt from the WWE Wellness policy.

Below is what Ross had to say:

“Lesnar is a part-time talent and part-timers are not under the standard, WWE wellness policy according to the WWE itself. If Shaq actually does get in the ring with Big Show at WM33 in Orlando, then Shaq would not be tested either because he would be considered a part-timer. I am not condoning PED use in any way but I do agree that WWE cannot require part time performers in a show business presentation, not a legit sport, to adhere to the same rules and regulations that they require of their full-time talents. Plus to compare pro wrestling to MMA is somewhat eye-rolling.”

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.
