Exclusive: What Caused Rey Mysterio’s 60 Day Suspension

Nick Paglino

Rey MysterioAfter speaking with several WWE sources, WZ has learned this evening that Rey Mysterio tested positive for amphetamines, which resulted in his second Wellness Policy violation and a subsequent 60 day suspension.

We were told that Mysterio denied taking any kind of drugs that would result in a positive test result/suspension should he have to be tested, but in the end Rey could not produce a prescription for the amphetamines and was therefore notified that he would have to serve a 60 day suspension.

No word at this time as to whether or not Mysterio will still travel to Japan, as previously planned, for the promotional tour in May.
