WWE has announced that Tag Team Champion Evan Bourne has been suspended for 30 days.

Their statement reads: “In accordance with its Talent Wellness Program, WWE has suspended Matthew Korklan (Evan Bourne) for 30 days effective immediately for his first violation of the company’s policy.”

Bourne and Kofi Kingston lost non-title matches on SmackDown and Raw.

    Just fire all of the druggies and ship them to TNA. These wrestlers make all of this money and can’t pass a drug test. Morons.

    Dave correction, if u get caught smoking bud too many times they will suspend u. He’s probably got what simon said to begin with, an injury substance in his system he didnt know was banned by WWE. Isnt like it matters. Bourne sucked anyway, he will be replaced by Zack Ryder and they will be called something lame like woo boom. Since its obvious that Mason Ryan is billed next to face Ziggler for the U.S. Blet. Peace yall

  • sandman

    Team kofi with ryder and call them Broski Boom

  • No1Coleminer

    man if born was taking steroids id want the money back!! loll

  • Dave

    But you only get a fine for smoking weed. They don’t suspend people for it.

  • The Real Joe. remember that storyline?

    So that’s why he’s always smiling and giving the peace sign. It all makes sense now

    Watch R-Truth and the Miz become tag team champions. Why because those two will gain heat for the tag team titles while Evan serve his Suspendtion plus what every kind of time he has to serve once he return. What I mean is Evan Bourne may have to go to the back of the line for a little while.

    This is a shock but a good thing is a way. Better a young talent like Bourne learn the hard way early rather than later in his career. I hope Evan learn his lesson because the guy has a lot of talent.

    Wow! I didn’t see this one coming. It’s a shame really considering he was just getting a push because he’ll be back in the dog house now, jobbing to Swagger.

    But that’s quite a few in the past few months: Heath Slater, Sin Cara, Darren Young.

    ^^^^^ You do know that Raw was last night? Goofball

  • Symbiote

    Probably drop the tag titles on Raw tonight.

  • simon07

    Maybe he took something a few weeks ago when he got injured and it’s not allowed or signed off by a WWE doctor.

    Either way, we don’t know what he’s done so saying he’s taken this or that is a bit pointless, and accusing him of taking steroids is a bit rude when we don’t really know anything about why he’s been suspended.

  • BuckieKid

    what a waste see u in tna all the best

  • mark

    great another one thats 3 now in the last mth. what the fuck is going on with these wrestlers? Just stupid. Great Evan now u have to drop the belts , probably never get them back

  • Tombstonepiledriver

    oops smoked. LOL

  • Tombstonepiledriver

    @Freakzilla. And you know this how? Could be he just smocked a doobie, or maybe took a zanax or something.

  • D2K

    I agree that Air Boom should drop titles to Awesome Truth. It’s the only other real tag team WWE has.

  • really

    what I meant was that they don’t use it as an excuse

  • really

    shame, I hope this is not an excuse to bury the tag titles again, things were starting to get better

  • Tombstonepiledriver

    What I would do is give Evan a harsher punishment but no suspension. Just make hime watch Matt Hardys internet videos for 3to4 days and that should break him from ever doing drugs again.

  • Snark Mark

    Whoa….. didn’t see that coming. Damn, Air Boom, despite the terrible name, was actually gaining a lot of traction. Should be interesting if they just quietly have Kofi compete for 30days and then bring Bourne back, or strip the champs. Hell, why not have Awesome Truth win the titles if they are being billed as the toughest tag team in the WWE?
