The following is an excerpt from Lance Storm’s latest blog entry: The drugs in pro-wrestling story got a lot more interesting late last week. Congress of the United States, as part of their ongoing investigation into illegal use of steroids and other drugs in sports, has request WWE provide the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform with copies of their current and past drug testing policies, copies of all test results, and any other related documents and communications the company has had concerning drugs and or drug related deaths in the industry. This is, to say the least, HUGE. The document I read was 7 pages and covers every possible drug or health related document or communication WWE has ever made. It also states WWE or WWF so they are intending to go back at least 7 years. From my understanding this is only a â<80><9c>requestâ<80> and WWE doesnâ<80><99>t have to comply, but I would assume that if WWE did not cooperate pressure would be on to subpoena them and get these documents anyway. Iâ<80><99>m not a lawyer so I donâ<80><99>t know if they would be able to get a subpoena, but from a public relations stand point, I would think WWE is going to have to comply with the request, to avoid looking guilty of trying to cover something up.
There were reports last week that Teddy Hart was rubbing people the wrong way in OVW. According to one source, he is actually on his best behavior. Another source is quoted saying that any heat he had isnâ<80><99>t â<80><9c>bad heat.â<80> Management was never upset with him, it was mainly jealousy among other guys because he is a Hart and has a great body along with him being an amazing athlete.
