Both Primo Colon and Robert Roode were suspended by WWE for 30 days for their first wellness policy violation recently and while the company did not reveal the reason behind the same, many believed that the two might have tested positive for a banned substance.
However, during a recent interview with Primera Hora, Primo talked about his suspension and claimed that he was not punished for any banned substance.
Per the WWE star, he was in Puerto Rico when WWE called him and asked him to travel back to the United States for a dope test and he refused to make the trip:
“I was not on the road, I was not scheduled for any event in the near future. I am in Puerto Rico when they call me suddenly, not to use me, but to travel for a doping test. I was ready to do it, but I told them that I was in Puerto Rico and that I was willing to go to a place that they chose to test me without any problem. I was not going to pay for a trip to just get tested for doping,”
He then didn’t hear from the officials for a couple of months and according to the high flying star, the company then sent him a letter, saying that he was suspended:
“Then I didn’t hear anything from the company about it and I thought they were going to call me when they found a place to do the test, Almost two months pass and I get the letter that I am suspended, according to them, because I refused to take the test. And that is not correct. They took it as I was out of the country [and unavailable], but I was available.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Primo Colon also revealed that his current contract with WWE expires in October 2020 and he will become a free agent afterward.
