Primo Colon Speaks Out About WWE Suspension: ‘My Reputation Is Worth More Than Any Check’

Speaking with Primera Hora, Primo Colon clarified his recent suspension by WWE, saying it’s not because of any drug use on his part. Instead, it was due to a miscommunication about travel. “I am in Puerto Rico when they call me suddenly, not to use me, but to travel to do a doping test. I was ready to do it, but I told them that I was in Puerto Rico and that I was willing to go to a place that they chose to test me without any problem, without any discomfort. I was not going to pay for a trip to just get tested for doping.”

Primo has not been used regularly on WWE TV for quite some time, and he’s currently regularly working for his father’s promotion, the World Wrestling Council in Puerto Rico. He states that he didn’t receive anything back from WWE, and he assumed that they were arranging for a test in his home country. “Almost two months pass and I get the letter that I am suspended, according to them, because I refused to take the test. And that is not correct. They took it as I was out of the country, but I was available.”

Primo also stated that he plans to appeal the suspension, as he feels that it’s wrong for WWE to claim that he failed a test. “I have to clarify it because my reputation is worth more than any check.”
