Animal Dismisses Wellness Policy – Says Not Everyone Is ‘Clean’



New WWE Hall of Famer Road Warrior Animal, who is scheduled to host a Raw live event later this month at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, does not believe that all of WWE’s talent is in compliance with the organization’s stringent drug testing policy.

Speaking out to Power Slam magazine days before his induction into the WWE Hall of Fame, Animal was asked about how important the larger-than-life, steroid-enhanced physiques were to the image of The Road Warriors. He was also asked if the team would have been the same force had they debuted in the modern WWE era where performers are drug tested.

“Let’s be totally honest with people right now. Look at the guys that are in [WWE] now. If anybody thinks that everybody there is 100-percent clean, they’ve got be smoking something,” he replied.

“I know they get drug tested and they do catch people, and people do get suspended, but I really don’t believe that everybody gets drug tested on the same level. I know the look of a person who looks like they’ve been on or off [steroids].”

“When we took them, it was totally legal to carry them on you.”

Diana Hart, mother of WWE Superstar David Hart Smith, made a similar claim during an interview three years ago as she wondered whether the same rules were being applied to all of WWE’s performers. This was based on WWE waiting close to two months in 2007 to publicize the results of a drug test her son had failed, and taking action only after promoting him to the main roster.

WWE has not issued a suspension related to performance-enhancing drugs in over two and half years—to Dolph Ziggler on October 10, 2008.
