Ricardo Rodriguez's Wellness Test Failure

Ricardo Rodriguez is telling people he failed a WWE Wellness Test due to a fat burning supplement that he purchased at GNC. We were told by a source within the company there were some type of levels elevated in his blood work that triggered the marker.

WWE has a baseline for all normal levels in the human body and when one of them comes back elevated, it's up to the worker to produce a valid prescription for the supplement. If they are unable to do this, they are issued a Wellness violation.

Former WWE Employee Starting Their Own Promotion

Former WWE NXT employee Rob Naylor received a tremendous amount of support after finishing up with the company prior to the move to the new WWE Performance Center.

While well liked, it was Triple H that made the call to release him. Hunter did have kind words for him on Twitter and Naylor was seen as someone that left on very good terms. In the short-term he'll be doing work for Dusty Rhodes but in the long-term, he's looking to run his own wrestling promotion.

We're told Naylor has already began scouting talent and wants to run in Florida.
