Evan Bourne's backstage heat just got hotter. WWE just released the following statement:

STAMFORD, Conn., January 17, 2012 – In accordance with its Talent Wellness Program, WWE (NYSE:WWE) has suspended Matthew Korklan (Evan Bourne®) for 60 days effective Tuesday, January 17 for his second violation of the company’s policy.

Bourne was suspended on November 1, 2011 for 30 days for his first violation of the company's Wellness Policy. It was later learned that Bourne was suspended for smoking Spice, a brand of synthetic marijuana.

He was said to be upset that he was suspended while R-Truth, who was smoking with him, was allowed to work Survivor Series. I reported exclusively here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com Premium on January 2, 2012 that Bourne had "nuclear" backstage heat for "ratting out" R-Truth and had meetings with Triple H and Vince McMahon over it.

On a lighter note, here is a photo of Bourne with Mr. Belding at last night's Raw Supershow.
