As recently reported, WWE Superstar Primo Colon recently violated WWE’s Wellness Policy and was suspended for 30 days, along with Robert Roode.
In an interview with PrimeraHora, Primo denied failing WWE's drug testing and claims he was really suspended for not being present for the drug test. Below is what he said (translated):
"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."
Primo Colon has not been on WWE TV since Survivor Series 2018 and only worked a few dark matches for the company back in February 2019.
