3-Hour Raw Preview, WWE Bans “Fake Weed” & More



- Tonight’s 3-hour episode of WWE RAW takes place from the 1st Mariner Arena in Baltimore, Maryland and will feature a “Power to the People” theme.

Similar to the old Cyber Sunday pay-per-views, fans will be able to vote on match opponents and stipulations through WWE’s website and text messaging.

The dark match main event that’s being advertised locally is John Cena, Big Show and Rey Mysterio vs. R-Truth, Alberto Del Rio and CM Punk.

- WWE recently made a big change to the company’s Wellness Policy that has rubbed a lot of talent the wrong way. Drug tests will now include screening for synthetic marijuana, commonly known as “spice” or “K2.” These substances are made to simulate the experience of smoking marijuana and are currently legal in the United States.

Talent that tests positive for the synthetic [fake] marijuana will receive the same $2,500 fine that WWE levies for marijuana use. This has several WWE talents upset, since a number of superstars and divas started using ‘fake weed’ when WWE banned the real thing last year.

The ‘fake marijuana’ has been made illegal by some states and is considered a “drug of concern” by the Drug Enforcement Administration.

- Former WWE executive Shane McMahon attended the US Open golf tournament on Sunday with the father of Rory McIlroy, the 22-year-old phenom who the tournament. Shane was shown on camera but not mentioned by name.
