PWInsider.com reports that there were quite a few Wellness tests given backstage at today’s ECW/Smackdown taping in Cleveland, Ohio. One source estimated over two dozen WWE performers were given urine tests this afternoon. Since WWE doesn’t give talent advance notice, there’s no way to know whether the testing was already planned when the SI.com article naming several talents implicated in the steroid investigation broke yesterday afternoon. That said, it’s entirely conceivable that a larger number of performers were administered tests in the wake of all the media attention.
The implication of World Wrestling Entertainment performers in Sports Illustrated’s coverage of the Florida steroid investigation has spread all over the mainstream media.
Colin Cowherd talked in detail on the subject today on ESPN Radio, including nearly ten minutes on the passing of Eddie Guerrero in 2005.
