TNA & Drug Testing, The Rock’s Return To WWE, Good News & Bad News For Heath Slater, Chris Jericho’s Suspension

We hear so much about the WWE Wellness Policy; what about drug testing in TNA? Do they have a counterpart comparable to what WWE does?

TNA Wrestling has no Wellness Policy in place. They do test from time-to-time but there is no set procedure as to what happens if a worker tests positive. TNA, as a private company, isn’t subject to the same level of scrutiny [as WWE] due to the fact they are private as well as much smaller than WWE.

When do you expect to see The Rock back on WWE television?

The Rock said on Twitter last month he’s coming back to WWE at the beginning of 2013. He noted how busy he is with three films to shoot. Obviously there is a chance he could return sooner but as things currently stand, it doesn’t look like he’ll be used at SummerSlam or any more events in 2012. However, I always like to remind readers anything is possible.

I’ve noticed what WWE has done with Heath Slater recently. He went from appearing only on NXT and Superstars to every Raw and Smackdown in the last few weeks. Do you feel that considering the amount of television time he’s receiving that he may be in for a push?

There’s good news and there’s bad news for Heath Slater. The good news is he’s getting on WWE television and live events, which is a position many people not being used would desire. However, the bad news is he’s being used as an enhancement talent scripted in embarrassing segments. Carlito candidly spoke about how he was used on last week’s Raw Supershow at this link. Could he be due a push? It’s possible but he’s currently an enhancement talent.

Chris Jericho’s suspension is up so will he appear on tonight’s Raw Supershow?

WWE announced last week that Chris Jericho will return to the company on tonight’s Raw Supershow. It was also noted that Fozzy’s new album is due out on August 14, 2012. We’ll have full Raw coverage here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com beginning at 9 PM EDT tonight.

    With wwe in desperate for stars I hope we see some good programing with y2j

    I'll say this about Slater: He's got balls for going out there twice a week and making such a fool out of himself like that. To me that says he's willing to stick it out through the work scheduled for an "enhancement talent", and I hope WWE appreciates it.

    • Sander

      Slater has no choice: he isn't a topstar so he must do what creative demands

  • Terra Ryzing

    Does anyone know where I can download Heath Slater’s new single?

    I think slater is great. He really plays it up. The Oh my gosh on monday was hiliarious. Bring him Sid and big poppa pump next. BRING IT!

  • H.M.

    Slater's actually pretty good at playing the role of 'enhancement talent'. I think the guy has some degree of talent so far as character goes.

  • Robert olley

    Athough slater isnt the best In ring talent he’s got plenty of charisma,willing to do what it takes to get a spot and has the best theme song I’ve heard in years

    the tna question is curious.. they proclaim to be the future of wrestling, well if they want to make it to that, they better put a policy in for the bad weeds to make that!

  • WyFo

    If TNA had drug testing, Jeff Hardy would have been out of a job a long time ago!
