Roman Reigns issues statement on steroid scandal

We noted before how current WWE Intercontinental Champion Roman Reigns was implicated in a huge steroid scandal by the former Addicts Gym owner Richard Rodriguez.

At that time, Reigns had not commented on the matter but now the former World Champion has issued a statement on the whole controversy.

In the statement as seen below, Roman claims that he has never heard of Richard and says that he learned from his mistake 2 years ago, referring to his wellness policy suspension in June 2016:

“I have never heard of Richard Rodriguez or Wellness Fitness Nutrition. I learned from the mistake I made nearly two years ago and paid the penalty for it. Since then, I’ve passed 11 tests as part of WWE’s independent drug testing program.”

For those who don’t know Richard Rodriguez is a former Gym owner who was arrested last year for manufacturing and distributing illegal steroids. You can read the full story here.
