In what is a very major news update on the Congress/WWE drug testing issue, Rep. Cliff Stearns (R-Fla.) was quoted by the New York Daily News as saying that WWE’s drug testing policy is “not worth a flip,” as it took a district attorney in Albany, NY little work to find out the names of people ordering illegal substances from Signature Pharmacy, while WWE themselves couldn’t do that. “We asked them for their testing information; what they came back with was not sufficient,” said Stearns. He also adds that WWE didn’t send an actual copy of their policy, or any other details as far as random testing, threshold levels, and employee check ups on post-dated prescriptions were sent. Stears claimed he has WWE’s attention now and believes hearings will begin in late September, or early October. This is a must-read article, as I’m sure it’ll be the leading news story in pro wrestling over the next month.
