More Details Behind The Delay of Chris Hero’s WWE Signing

Nick Paglino

As we had been reporting over the last several weeks, former Ring of Honor star Chris Hero's WWE signing had been delayed several times as he could not receive medical clearance from the company due to "high testosterone levels."

The Wrestling Observer is now reporting that Hero actually has naturally high levels of testosterone, and that it took many rounds of testing to prove that he was not on steriods, but that the high levels of testosterone were produced by his body naturally. WWE officials are now aware of this, and he has been medically cleared to sign with the company.
