Instead of presenting a list of banned substances like the NBA, NFL, MLB, UFC, and Olympic committee do in their policies, WWE takes a different approach. The company actually created a condition that makes it okay for talent to take anything from anabolic steroids to painkillers, so long as they receive valid prescriptions from licensed doctors and/or physicians (or procure a TUE, a.k.a. a Therapeutic Use Exemption). The policy states that, “The non-medical use of anabolic androgenic steroids…is prohibited.” ...... What can we learn from the WWE Wellness Policy? Basically, the company has established a set of guidelines that they’re able to circumvent, even with the use of independent testers. For part-timers, it’s pretty easy to get away with putting PEDs in their bodies. Not only does this jeopardize the health of the WWE’s talent, but it undermines efforts (whether genuine or not) to create an effective, morally upstanding, and legitimate policy. So then if WWE superstars can get their hands on these substances, and are provided the legal foundation to do so, why have a policy in the first place? If the product is entertainment first and foremost, as Vince McMahon claims, then why should the company follow the sports model of drug testing as opposed to the Hollywood model (no testing)? Well, here’s what the Chairman had to say about that in an interview with ESPN in 2009: “I think some of it’s political, and again, being held to a different standard … There’s a history of steroids in our business. I think we’re easy to point out because we’re not wearing pads, we’re not hiding behind anything, and we’re highly, highly visible.” Read the full article HERE So this basically goes through the whole Brock being positive for drugs in the UFC and why the "policy" makes no sense. From my understanding, this is just Vince's way of allowing his wrestlers to use/do what they want without him being in trouble for their actions if something should happen. I think though, realistically, only Vince's favorites are fully protected... *cough*brock*cough* Share your thoughts on their wellness policy and if you think it is unfairly used.
