Adam Rose Claims WWE Was Not Right To Suspend Him

Shares 0

Adam Rose tweeted the following about his second strike of the WWE Wellness Policy, which resulted in a 60-day suspension from the company without pay:

I was not going to respond to my suspension but I feel I have to. I have two sons that will one day read that news about there daddy and a sister that died from complications related to a life long battle with heroin.

So I feel the absolute need and right to respond and let the truth be known.

I am pretty sure this response will meet nowhere near the publicity that my suspension did and that this response is tantamount to career suicide. But I feel for my sons my sister and rest of my family... you the Wwe universe have the right to the know the truth over my suspension and what it was for.

I will also quote my Dr in my response as he was as shocked and appalled by this suspension.

I can say right now I did not do anything knowingly wrong and was taking prescribed medication that my Dr and I followed all the correct protocol on.

My actual response and Doctors response will be coming soon. So before you judge, know the facts.

My family and I are still collecting ourselves from this blow. I have zero anger or animosity against the WWE. But feel the administrators over the WWE Wellness policy were just simply not right in taking this action.

But I feel facts are the facts and my family and I will will be the ones putting our lives back together after this mess.

My response will be up soon along with my Doctors.

As CJ reported here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com, Rose was suspended for 60 days for his second violation of the WWE Wellness Policy.

    Justified or not, I’d say he just ensured he’ll be a jobber for life in the WWE.

      Likely, but damn it if what he’s saying is true, I respect the man for opening up about it and explaining it. If there’s a problem with the wellness policy, it needs to be addressed. Regardless of whether this is career suicide or not, I’ve got nothing but respect for Rose.

        I’m with you, Simon. The fact that he isn’t just hiding in a hole during his suspension makes me feel he’s being truthful. I could easily see this as a case of him using pain meds or even a steroid for an injury (rather than take time off, now that he’s been on TV regularly again and wouldn’t want to lose his spot), but not notifying WWE HQ about the prescription in time.

        I was a big fan of Leo Kruger and I became a big fan of the Ray Leppan when I learned of his family life. He has a good heart and a strong work ethic, I hope he’s as innocent as he’s claiming to be.

          Likewise dude, seeing what he goes through for his family had a huge impact on me. I’d love to see this get cleared up if there is something questionable about it. Unfortunately though it’s quite likely that this could be the final nail in his WWE career. I hope not, but I think the damage could already be done.

        unfortunately, too many wrestlers have had “prescribed” medications and still misused them, which is why they are as stringent as they are….. Adam has never struck me as the type, so hopefully he can ride this out, present his evidence and everything and hopefully something can be done

      • AB

        Definitely a fair point.

  • Stoney

    Well he has been nailed shut in the doghouse with no way of getting out, and to think he was supposed to be the new Santino

  • Splat

    Good luck in your future endeavors.

  • Patrick

    been nice knowing you best of luck

  • I understand why he felt he had to do this but this will unquestionably kill his WWE career. He knows that so more power to him.

  • Jason Langford

    He’ll be released soon. TNA awaits. He’ll probally challenge for the Title at bound for glory.

    • TNA won’t be around by the time his non-compete ends.

      • Jason Langford

        very good point. to Ring of Honor then.

      This “WWE Reject” thing needs to die. It *only* comes from so-called smarks… It’s bulls*** that there are never any “TNA Rejects” going to WWE in the eyes of smarks. That’s solely because they think WWE is the be all/end all like I and Big M already made a lengthy comment and article about, respectively. WWE isn’t the *the* wrestling company. Far from it. WWE is the “sports entertainment” company. WWE’s entertainment does not necessarily mean “wrestling”.

        I like TNA or at least I used to anyway. Until recently there matches were alot better then WWE could put on. But with there lack of funds and inability to create stars TNA has to rely on the name value of former WWE superstars. I wouldn’t call them rejects. Hell Angle, Christian, Booker T, and Kevin Nash weren’t rejects. And most former TNA superstars aren’t ever refered to as rejects because they weren’t released from their contracts they left on their own accord. If TNA continues with newer guys from the indy scene or even former WWE Alum and handle them like they did ECIII they could save themselves.

    Having a family member that fights the heroin demon, my thoughts and prayers for Adam Rose and his family. If he was under a doctor’s care, on a prescribed medicine, following the protocol for the medication, receiving the random drug testing required to continue the medication, then WWE is wrong. However, I am also more than well-aware of the lengths and lies that an addict will go to in order to manipulate the people that love and care for them. As I said before, prayers for your continued sobriety Adam Rose!

    thats a bold move or Adam Rose. it can kill his WWE carreer. but at least hes going saying his thruth. this reminds me of when ADR was fired in that racist altercation or when CM punk said all those thing in colt cabana’s podcast.
    Good luck to Adam Rose.
