The following comes from the NY Daily News:

Breaking News
Top WWE names emerge in doping scandal

BY T.J. QUINN

DAILY NEWS SPORTS WRITER

Thursday, August 30th 2007, 4:27 PM

The WWE was rocked again today, after several of wrestling's top names emerged in the Albany district attorney's probe into a widespread Internet doping scandal.

The wrestling conglomerate based in Stamford announced that it will suspend 10 of its biggest stars for violation of its wellness policy.

Top wrestlers Randy Orton, Charles Haas, Jr., Adam "Edge" Copeland, Robert "Booker T" Huffman, Shane Helms, Mike Bucci, Anthony Carelli, John "Johnny Nitro" Hennigan, Darren "William Regal" Matthews, Ken "Mr. Kennedy" Anderson and Chavo Guerrero were all identified as clients of Signature Pharmacy in Orlando, the site raided by Albany County and Florida law enforcement agencies in February for distributing steroids and other prescription drugs to clients who had not been examined by doctors. The investigation is part of a probe into illegal Internet drug distribution by Albany D.A. David Soares.

The WWE said in a statement that it issued suspension notices based on independent information received from the Albany D.A.

The WWE's announcement comes as members of Congress prepare to investigate steroid use in professional wrestling, as the Daily News reported today.

Two of its recently deceased stars - Chris Benoit and Eddie Guerrero - also received steroids and other drugs from Signature, as prescribed by Florida physician Gary Brandwein, who has pleaded not guilty to criminal sale of a controlled substance and criminal diversion of prescription drugs. Benoit murdered his wife and son before killing himself in June and Guerrero died in a Minneapolis hotel in 2005 from heart disease.

Guerrero received the steroids testosterone and nandrolone, along with the estrogen-blocker anastozole, a drug commonly taken by men on steroids to prevent developing breast tissue, Nov. 2, 2005, just 11 days before he died of heart disease.

Guerrero's nephew, Chavo Guerrero, found Guerrero unconscious in the hotel room.

Benoit received steroids from Signature, based on a Brandwein prescription, in February, 2006.

The WWE stars are among the first athletes to face discipline for their part in the nationwide Signature Pharmacy scandal, the Internet steroid ring that has already led to guilty pleas from nine doctors, anti-aging clinic owners and operators. Law enforcement sources have said they expect the names of numerous NFL and Major League Baseball athletes to emerge as well.

Let me sum this up for you WWE fans.

* Randy Orton
* Charlie Haas
* Adam Copeland (Edge)
* Robert Huffman (King Booker)
* Shane Helms (Gregory Helms)
* Mike Bucci (Nova/Simon Dean)
* Anthony Carelli (Santino Marella)
* John Hennigan (John Morrison/Johnny Nitro)
* Darren Matthews (William Regal)
* Ken Anderson (Mr. Kennedy)
* Chavo Guerrero
* Dave Bautista
* Shoichi Funkai
* Chris Mordetzky (Chris Masters


All of the above are very likely suspended.

might aswell suspend all the main eventers. You just cant keep up the shape your in if your in a grueling year round schedule as WWE employs. Putting your body on the line night after night isnt normal, so youll have to depend on things such as steroids.

Not confirmed as those superstars.

What is confirmed is that 9 out of 10 of them have been suspended for 30 days because it's their first suspension.

1 of them has been suspended for 60 days because it's second suspension, and we all know a certain Randy Orton was suspended a while back.


This will be interesting as Kennedy is Vince's "illigitmate son" in the storyline and Randy Orton was scheduled to take the title from Cena at Unforgiven! :o)

Mike Bucci (Nova/Simon Dean) was released by WWE

Released means that they both agreed on termination.

WWE FIRED Simon Dean.

He was a talents manager or somethin like that because he was a crap on screen performer.

Eugene released by WWE, not to do with this drugs thing, mainly because he's crap.

Orton likely cleared which means Chris Masters is likely the second time offender who is serving a 60 day ban. Orton and Masters are the only ones who have previous out of the ones named in Sports Illustrated.

Kennedy and Umaga were pulled from 1/9/07 RAW house show, likely suspended for 30 days.

John Morrison lost ECW Title off-screen in a dark match(i think) and it looks like Morrison is suspended for 30 days.

Batista added to World Title match at Unforgiven with Rey and Khali, Batista only person cleared or any wrong doing.

Smackdown and ECW were recorded last night, check spoiler sites for more news from them. A RAW house show was also held.

RAW will be recorded tonight so check the news later tonight on who is likely to be suspended on RAW, considering RAW GM William Regal was named, should be interesting.


:o)

Nick Dinsmore kicks ass.

And why is Batista getting a title shot AGAIN? Isn't it like his sixth in a short period of time? Someone fire him already...

Dinsmore is talented, Eugene isn't. If you don't understand that, he needed a good gimmick, they gave him a crap one, would have struggled to change it anyway.

Besides, he was released becasue of a Wellness Program Violation. Nothing related to the Sports Illustrated stuff, but he was released under the Wellness Program.


Regarding Batista, he works the crowd well.

Cena? Wrestle? Mr. 5 moves?
Post by: Syrjis(80123)
2007-09-06 13:00:42
Him having a moveset of 5 moves is hardly entirely his fault now is it?
Post by: Prince Of VOW(270242)
2007-09-06 13:16:51
Well.. Yeah actually.

He has no talent. Period.

You not watched The Marine?

Since when did acting in a movie have anything to do with in-ring athleticism? I fail to see the logic in this.

Based on your argument, Michael Jordan is a bad basketball player because of Space Jam.
