Evan Bourne Talks About Smoking Synthetic Weed In WWE, Apologizing To Kofi Kingston, More
Former WWE Superstar Evan Bourne (Matt Sydal) did a live shoot interview with Kayfabe Commentaries this weekend. Replays can be found at WWNLive.com for $15.99. Bourne was asked about being suspended by WWE for failing a drug test and if he regrets it. He replied:
“Do I regret it? Duh. Basically I failed for that synthetic marijuana which I was smoking instead of normal marijuana for some ridiculous reason. I thought I could get away with it and I did for a while. Then I got caught and I was like, ‘well I don’t do that anymore.’ Then lo and behold I ended up doing it again the night before a test, the second time, and that was that. That was that. Very Very much regret it, duh. What kind of question is that?”
Bourne was asked by another fan what kind of synthetic marijuana he smoked. He replied:
“I smoked this garbage called Serenity Now, which in the beginning was a lot like weed except I could smoke it and not fail my test for weed, which had been a problem. I failed a couple tests for marijuana. I was trying to not do that because it stays in your system for a while. I was like, ‘I can just try this stuff, it tastes good, it’s fine.’ What happened was, as it grew in popularity, the formulas changed and the stuff started getting really bad. But by then I was kind of hooked on smoking it all the time. I was buying way too much of it.”
Bourne went on to say that he will never smoke “spice” again and hasn’t in a long time. He felt bad about screwing tag team partner Kofi Kingston over and apologized to him before the drug test results even came back. He said Kofi was supportive the whole time and does not smoke marijuana.
