Chris Masters and Bobby Lashley have told friends that Congress contacted them and asked them about WWE’s drug testing policy.
Regarding Masters, the word going around is that Congress asked Masters if it was true that his physical appearance was openly mocked on WWE television after he returned from a suspension.
Back in September 2006, upon returning to WWE from his suspension (due to painkiller abuse), Triple H mocked Masters for losing a significant amount of weight (muscle mass) in a short period of time. In a backstage segment, Masters is seen talking with Eric Bischoff about his newly released book, Controversy Creates Cash. After Bischoff leaves, Triple H asks Masters if he’s going to write a book. Masters replies by saying that he was thinking about writing a book on nutrition. Triple H snarls, “What are you going to call it? How to lose 50 pounds in four weeks?”
In early January, I reported on Rep. Henry A. Waxman setting up a tipline on the U.S. House of Representatives website concerning steroid use in professional wrestling, which you can find at oversight.house.gov/contact/wrestling.asp.
